I went to the ASD, but not the housing tour. Met a couple other TLSers there. It was a pretty good time overall.
The Dean spoke, and I think she said all the right things. Afterwards there was a mock lecture with two of the professors that was really interested. We were talking about a court case with three guys stranded on a boat, that killed and ate a fourth guy.
After the lecture there was a panel of current students taking questions. I'm sure they get some of their best students to take part, but they all seemed to be doing well and spoke highly of the school.
My favorite part of the Law Day was the lunch.. They had an alumni sitting at each table talking to us. Then they all went up and said when they graduated and what they're doing now. Once again I'm sure they make sure to get some of their best to participate.. but all of them were doing very well for themselves, and most had just graduated a few years ago.
I think the day made me feel a little better about the school. As I said, I know they probably make sure only their better students/alumni participate, but I spoke to a couple of them and made some good connections. If I end up at UM, I don't think it would be the worst thing in the world.
Oh, the Dean also addressed a question about the rankings. She pretty much said the same thing she wrote in the letter that was posted earlier... about the LLM and joint-degree students counting as unemployed. But she seemed to understand the concern about it and said she'd work on it to make sure they jump back up next year. She also threw in the top 20 "Super Lawyer" ranking, and said they were ranked highly in the law firms rank schools listing.. don't remember the exact number though.
Yea.. I guess that's it..
