Law School Fair

Postby BigLaw_Lit » Sun Oct 06, 2013 8:32 pm

I already know where I am applying and I have other time commitments. Do you think I should go to a law school fair in the next few weeks. I am wondering if anyone felt they made a connection within t14 admissions that impacted their cycle. Thanks

It can be good for getting fee waivers, and there is anecdotal evidence of some schools in the T14 making note of which people attend and ask questions.

as far as it impacting your cycle, probably not.

There is almost literally 0 chance of it impacting your cycle. I would not bother unless you are going to shake down fee waivers (which you can just do via email anyway).

Just to offer another perspective, we wrote a blog on this very topic: http://spiveyconsulting.com/blog/forums ... e-or-draw/
Going to a fair may not help, but it does have some potential.
Hope this is useful!
Cheers,
Karen
