His daughter and my gf are in the same sorority, went to high school together, etc. I sent him an e-mail the following Monday saying thanks for the insight into his career and that I looked forward to keeping in touch with him through applying and school. He told me that it was great talking and to make sure to call him after my 1L year. Fast forward to the start of 2012 and I emailed him again. He responded and said to not forget to email him after my 1L to schedule an interview.
Any tips on what to say or do to stay in contact with him until through the next year and half? Ask him to golf? Email asking a question about schools I plan on applying to? At a loss.
Approach it like any networking opportunity. When you have an accomplishment, email him to let him know about it and say stuff like "Hope all is well. Would love to grab a cup of coffee"
