Possibly. I will go to the admitted student day on the 10th of April. LSU is one of my favored schools because of the climate and region. However, I'm still waiting to hear back from other schools and I likely won't hear back from them until late April or May.

I'm too lazy to look it up. Why is it called a Law Center and not a Law School? Is it just because of some kind of degree of independence it has from the undergrad institution?

I'm going to LSU in the fall. I already sent in my seat deposit. I live in Baton Rouge right now, so I'm going to be at the cocktail reception and the ASD too.

I'll be attending the cocktail reception & ASD as well.

and I have a sort of trivial question, but maybe someone's got advice on appropriate attire for a girl at the chancellor's reception? dress or pencil skirt or slacks? suit jacket or nice sweater?

Why do they have this? It would probably help them in the rankings a bit if they affiliated fully with LSU.

From the catalog:

THE LAW CENTER AND
THE LSU COMMUNITY
The Paul M. Hebert Law Center is unique among university affiliated
law schools because it is an autonomous campus not a
dependent college, of its larger university. Its designation as a Law
Center, rather than Law School, derives not only from its campus
status but from the centralization on its campus of J.D./D.C. L.,
and post-J.D. programs, Foreign and Graduate programs, including
European programs in Lyon, France, and Louvain, Belgium, a
Center of Civil Law Studies, and the direction of the Louisiana
Law Institute and the Louisiana Judicial College, among other initiatives.
From its founding in 1906, the Law Center has offered its
students a legal education recognized for its high standards of academic
excellence, an outstanding teaching and research faculty,
integrated programs in Louisiana civil law, in Anglo-American
common, statute, and federal law, and, through a fusion of these
programs with international and comparative law, an overall program
that truly merits designation as a global law curriculum.

And they could not do these things if they were fully affiliated with the undergrad institution?

I know that the invite said "dressy casual,"

I hate all these terms....here's what I found:

Possibly the safest way to dress appropriately is to avoid certain things. Even though some people might consider fancy jeans as dressy casual, others don’t. Therefore, avoiding jeans is a good idea.

Other things that ought to be skipped are shorts of most kinds, t-shirts, informal short sleeve shirts, and very casual shoes like flip-flops. The other thing to avoid is overly dressy clothing. Men shouldn’t wear three piece suits or tuxes, and women should avoid cocktail dresses or formal gowns.

Instead, people may want to view this category of dress as similar to business wear, with a bit more informality. Women in nice slacks and a blouse fit the dressy casual bill, but they can also wear dresses, skirts and blouses, slacks and a pretty sweater, or less formal suits. Most office wear can be dressed up with a scarf, an attractive pin, the change to a different blouse, or by taking off jackets and wearing a skirt and blouse combo.

Shoes for women should be either semi-dressy heels or flats. Nylons or tights are usually worn, as bare legs don’t typically fit this description. Yet in summer, some women do fine with dressy casual wear that doesn’t include nylons.

For men, this category of dress typically means slacks and a button-down shirt. People who want to be a little dressier can choose to wear a jacket, but it certainly doesn’t have to match pants totally. Cardigan sweaters, pullover sweaters, and sweater vests fit the dressy casual bill, and most men will be relieved to know that a tie isn’t exactly required. However men should check to be certain that they don’t require a jacket or tie at certain locations, like various restaurants.

Shoes for men in dressy casual wear should be simple loafers, very similar to business wear shoes. Some men do wear boat shoes, but this may be a little too casual.

I was wondering that also. I'll give them an email on Monday and I'll let you know.
