Does anyone know what the dress code is? I remember someone said he had to wear a tie at an earlier event.

Oooh, good question. I would like to know too since I'm dragging my husband along.

I called the admissions and they told me business casual.

I'll be at this weekends visit day! I'm an OSU undergrad, but I'm excited to hear more about the law school.

OSU has a different definition for business casual though

It's pretty standard business casual, just they explicitly requested guys to wear ties. I'll be there this weekend, pretty excited. Seems like a lot of you are shifting BigTen schools too. Coming to OSU after being a life-long IU fan kind of feels like crossing over to the dark side, albeit the winning dark side.

Is anyone else bringing a guest? I'm taking my mom. Neither her or my dad went to college so they're really excited to learn all this law school jazz. I just didn't know if I'd be the only person with a parent there...

My mom will be coming as well, no worries. I brought my g/f to a prospective students weekend in Columbus earlier and it seemed like a majority brought a guest of some kind.

I'm not bringing a parent, but I'm bringing my girlfriend who will be coming with me to school. I'm sure quite a few people will be bringing guests..

I'm bringing my fiancee, and I'm sure a lot of people will bring guests. I went to the open house in October and a lot of people brought parents, so I'm sure she won't be the only one there.

Sooo, I was just thinking . . . I have the confirmation e-mail from registering for ASW next weekend, but I haven't received anything else like a schedule or what-have-you. And I really like to be over-prepared. Anyone else in the same boat?

Yep right there with you, especially since the last time they had ASW there was some kind of document they sent out for the mock class..

I'm going to the visitation day tomorrow, and have no idea what to wear. I just got to Columbus and only have a long sleeve shirt, fleece, and shorts. Am I about to look like an asshole tomorrow who forgot what to wear?

Yep.

Get thee to a department store and get a shirt, slacks, and tie.

Unfortunately, about all you can get at this hour will be Wal-Mart. :/

This could be interesting. If I were you, I'd say the airlines lost my bag. Problem solved.

At a conference once with a friend he forgot to bring a dress shirt (though he had a tie, sports jacket, everything else)--it was 11:30 p.m. when we got there to this tiny town in Appalachia the night before. So he made a Wal-Mart run for a dress shirt. It worked out well, actually. Surely Columbus can provide at least as well.

I actually had a question, the hotel is paid for right? Or are they just making the reservation and we are going to be stuck with a bill at the end?

The hotel is paid for. If you need an additional room, they'll reserve it but you need to pay for it.

I wonder when they are going to send out info about next week's ASW...

Tick tock, tick tock.

I'll e-mail Jimmi Nicholson tomorrow, if I can remember. Do they send out information about ASW via e-mail or via snail mail? I'm hoping the former at this point.

I just attended the past ASD. Let me tell you my concerns... NOTHING!!!

The Students were awesome and friendly!
The Faculty (especially the mock class) was great!
The Prospective students actually had a personality and were engaging!

O H all the way!!!

Let me know if you have any questions about my experience!
