Didn't go. Would be interested in hearing other people's thoughts. Generally, Dean Syverud is a straight shooter and a pretty good guy, so I hope he was no-BS.

I am considering going for a bit. It is a good way to start meeting some attorneys. I met a few there that I had coffee with a few weeks later, so I think it was somewhat helpful. I didn't find have any "breakthroughs" with the alumni, but it was a good way to practice networking as a 1L. Hopefully by this time next semester you'll be decent at it. I know "network!" is overused and you can't network your way into a job that doesn't exist, but it is a very valuable tool, both for job hunting and for lawyers in general. I would go.
