As stressful as law school sounds, I was very surprised to find a very relaxed atmosphere where it seemed like everyone supported one another. Seemed like a pretty chill environment (as far as law schools go). Def. made me more excited to attend Wake Law!
-Also, the food was dank. Probably going to go to the other acceptance days just for the cheesecake.
Hey! I'm attending the ASD on March 1st and I was wondering if anyone brought their parents with them? Thanks!
Edit: I don't think my parents are coming with me, but I'm curious either way.
The general advice is don't bring them, but there's no harm if you do(although some say its a career damaging move if you do). Some schools will have quite a few parents at it and some will only have a couple for whatever reason.
My advice is dont bring them, and Don't ask this question in the WUSTL thread.
Hahaha, true. I thought it'd be cool to bring my parents along since they never went to college, but I'm gonna go by myself since its more professional, I suppose.
I personally think you should being your parents. You'll need support and encouragement while you go through law school. Also I am guessing it will mean a great deal to them. Nobody and I mean nobody is going to judge you for bringing them to ASD. Now if they show up on campus after classes start other than parents weekend or graduation...
All kidding aside Wake offers a very open community and being a part of the Wake Law family means we want to know your parents and siblings. Of course, there are limits but it is not uncommon for families to bond with our community in all sorts of ways. Obviously you guys are adults, but I'd question any school that wants to exclude your parents from being a part of your discernment process.
