Admissions events

Postby jmjm » Sun Jan 20, 2013 6:10 am

Do law schools such as hysccn or t14 host admissions events like B-schools where one could get to hear from admissions committee regarding the school's admission process and individual fit (especially for schools that look beyond numbers)? SLS doesn't have any admissions events for prospective students at its webpage.

If you are talking about when adcoms travel to other places to talk about admissions, many schools call those "recruiting" events. Most schools have a calender on their website. Often these things are listed on the calender/schedule of events.
If you are talking about visiting a school, you can always set up a tour. Usually if you contact them a couple weeks in advance they can set up an appointment with someone from admissions.

There's information pertaining to setting up a school visit but no information regarding "recruiting" (admissions) events at most schools. For example http://www.law.stanford.edu/prospective/ only has "visiting the law school" link but no admissions event from admissions representatives.

Any school that hosts "recruiting events" in t14?
I can't seem to find any that does.

SLS might not want to waste time on a whole bunch of people who they are ultimately going to reject... however, I did see that HLS has a webinar event at our school.

SLS was at one of the law school events at UCLA. Michigan was there... as was Duke, Berkeley and a few others. Check out your local university... I got a few fee waivers from the events as well.

Yes, but recruiting season usually ends around December. Maybe LSAC fairs are year-round?

Not in college anymore and looking for events open to all applicants. Wonder if HLS ever comes to SF.

http://www.lsac.org/jd/choose/forums-and-other-events.asp#recruitment

The Bay Area LSAC forum is at the end of June this year.

Besides that, very few schools attend recruitment events in the spring. The ones that do tend to do specific events with university prelaw clubs or advising offices.

I would also make sure you're registered with LSAC and opt to receive email solicitations from law schools. I know I always try to email students when I'm going to be in an area for a fair, but LSAC is the only real place we can get names. If you're not in there, we don't know about you and can't spam you send you information and fee waivers, etc. (For those of you still in school, this means you should also list your ACTUAL current address, not your parents' home address. I'm constantly hearing from students who missed out on a big law fair in their area because I sent them an email about an event near their parents' and not one where they're actually living.)
