Email regarding William & Mitchell's "Indian Law" clinic. Interestingly enough, I'm not Native American.

Got this email from University of Richmond:

We are inviting you to join us for a Mock Law School Admission Committee Meeting where you will be deputized as a faculty member of the Admission Committee.

You, as a Committee member, will review actual applicant files considering all aspects of the file (LSAT, GPA, letters of recommendation, personal statements, and other support documents included in an admissions file) that are considered by Admissions Committees when making an admission decision.

The discussion will be led, and files presented, as in an actual Admissions Committee Meeting, by seasoned admission professionals (and decision-makers). At the conclusion of the Committee’s deliberations, one offer of admission will be determined by the Committee (you).

This program is designed to cover the elements of the admissions process through a participatory and engaging (and often rousing) exercise.

This presentation will be of great interest to you and you will take away “inside” information that will be helpful to you in applying to law schools.


seems kind of interesting, I would have went if I cared about that school haha

The hell is the selling point there? Please give deets


Well, it started with them asking me my name and then, once I had verified it was me, they launched into what sounded like a scripted introduction to what & where Concordia Law is, followed by them asking me if I was still planning on applying to law school, then another lengthy script about how I'd be a candidate for a scholarship, and then a series of biographical questions (pretty much everything they'd presumably have off of CRS - when I was graduating, what year I plan to attend, if I was planning on applying for full time or part-time, etc.), with them following up each question with an unrelated script about other scholarship offers, the fact that they have part-time programs (this notably followed me answering that I had no interest in part time, lol), etc. Then they asked how was best to contact me and told me they'd send me more info.

Just a whole lot of scripts and awkward. I barely got a word in at all. At least when Michigan State attempted roughly the same tactic the person calling was at least slightly personable and actually asked if I was interested in them.

Telemarketing 101. Bet the same call center shills home security systems the other half of the day.

Just got a call from an MSU 2L who is a SoCal native. She pleasant but the convo died when she asked which schools I was looking at and I told her.

With that said, I kind of appreciate their marketing efforts.

Never got so many emails as I have this week leading up to the LSAC forum in NY, for which I am registered. Every law school outside the T14 is apparently looking forward to meeting me on Friday.

I did get invites from some TTTT law schools to attend a reception with food after the forum. I'm seriously considering attending one of these meetings, because, you know... free food. But I think I'll need to catch my train back home. We'll have to see.

Bring Tupperware. That's what my Asian aunts would do. No shame.

I got invites for such events from more than one TTTT. I decided based on which seemed to be offering the best food.

In terms of emails, this week alone I've received emails from: Baltimore, OSU, Memphis, Utah, Cincinnati, Denver, LSU, Akron, Lewis & Clark, Pizzeria Uno (oh, wait...), Western State College of Law, U San Francisco, Syracuse, John Marshall Atlanta, Washington & Lee, Missou, SUNY Buffalo, Faulkner, Tulsa, Nova Southeastern, Albany, Pepperdine, UCLA, Marquette, New York Law School, William and Mary, Phoenix School of Law, Cardozo, Quinnipiac, U La Verne, Wisconsin, Barry, Touro, Dayton, UMass, Faulker (twice, yes), Mercer, California Western, William Mitchell, Hamline, Pacific McGeorge, Saint Louis U, Western New England, San Diego, American U, Tulsa, Santa Clara, UNH, Iowa, Michigan State. So far.

Honestly I find more wrong with your post than I do the email from the school. Seriously, calling out an employee of the school for not having a BA/BS? This is Mississippi for petes sake I would say an associates probably puts him ahead of 85-90% of the states population in terms of highest level of education completed. Plus the guy looks young, he's probably finishing up undergrad for free as an employee of the college and getting paid to do it.

Oh and bump I guess.
