Advice: Meeting with admissions counselor

Postby MachineLemon » Mon Nov 28, 2011 11:53 am

Scheduled a law school (T-10) visit for next week. They asked if I'd like to meet with an admissions counselor, and I said yes. Any thoughts on good questions to ask/things to avoid?

A note: Based on my numbers (177/3.76), I am a possible YP. However, I am trying for a scholarship since I think the school would otherwise be a very good fit for me.

just be honest and ask about your numbers and make a good impression.
application time mention the meeting in your PS or something...stressing you want the school for location

Thanks for the reply. I should add that my application is already in with a "Why X" detailing my reasons for applying. I am probably overthinking this, but I just wanted to kick it around it a bit so I don't feel unprepared going in.

Chicago & Northwestern may offer full tuition scholarships if you apply ED.

I would avoid asking for the named scholarship of a different school.

If you already wrote the Why X? (meaning I assume it's an MVP), plus are visiting and speaking face to face with an admissions counselor, I think you've already pretty much eliminated the chances of YP. Just be frank, and if anything interesting has happened to you since you applied, talk about that. Don't be aspie/get schools confused and I doubt you can really hurt your application.
