Law School Admissions 101?

Postby uchi15hopeful » Mon Oct 03, 2011 3:18 pm

My friend told me about an event with the deans of Chicago, Michigan, and Penn. It's on October 17th and it's in Chicago.

Anyone know about this?

Ever wonder how a law school admissions committee makes decisions?

Join deans of admission from the University of Chicago, the University of Michigan, and the University of Pennsylvania law schools for a realistic look at how applications are reviewed. Panelists and student participants will debate the merits of actual law school applications to select the best. You'll learn what works and what doesn't in the competitive law school admissions process.

After googling a sentence from the description, it sounds like this is an event that's been held all over the place, at a variety of schools.

It might be worth attending simply to make contact with the admissions folks so that you can send a follow-up / thank-you note later.

This is an event that's held in a variety of cities hosted by the adcomms of UMich, UChicago, and UPenn. It's usually held at a school but, a year (or two?) ago, it was held at White & Case in NYC. It features a rundown of the admissions process, commentary of what adcomms are looking for, as well as a Q&A. A few of my students have attended these and gained some pretty good insight into the applications process. You can also speak to them after the event so, as Steve said, it could be useful in making contact with them for the future.
