Her opinion matters because she has to move too, a parent doesn't have to spend three years anywhere. They are likely going to encourage you to go to a school they know the name of or is close to home. Ultimately, their opinion is marginally helpful at best.
Yeah I see your point, but they're you're fucking parents. If they want to tag along to ASW, LET THEM. I would dearly love to have my mom at my admitted students event. Yes, she might embarrass me, but she's my mother and whether or not she knows much about law school, her opinion matters.
