Just tell your SO that you will be sitting in on classes and talking to professors and looking at the library and whatever other stuff no one not interested in going to law school would be interested in. Of course mine has already been to Ann Arbor so she doesn't need to see the overall vibe of the town.
Yeap...that's my exact concern. I'd hate to have her take a couple days off from work to spend most of the time alone. Based on the action packed schedule, it seems that's what would happen.
Posting at the request of my wife.
We visited together last year and the visit was really important for her. She didn't come to all of the scheduled events (mock class, career panel, etc), but she did come to the social events (lunch and dinner meet and greets with other students, campus tour, wine reception with the profs). Coming to Ann Arbor, having a chance to check out some apartments, and just generally learning more about the school was good for both of us. If you have a spouse or significant other, really consider having them come with you - this will be the next three years of their life as well and you want to make sure that they're comfortable with the decision and can see a life here for themselves as well.
so she was able to go with you to all the events/meetings? was there a particular time she felt isolated?
Hi... Holydonkey's wife posting because he is busy writing something for legal practice (your spouses should get used to having their own lives now, because you won't be spending a lot of weekend nights with them next year)! I was able to go to all of the sessions and events during ASW, but just selected those that were of interest to me. I think I went to all of the events with food and to most of the panels. I did not go to the mock classes, but could have if I wanted to. I spent a lot of my time wandering around the campus and looking into various housing options. I would also consider having your S/O set up informational meetings with any prospective employers and/or grad programs they are interested in.
I'd be happy to answer any job hunt/housing/life in A2 questions those with SO's may have!
