Questions to ask Law School Dean in Meeting

Postby hoosierball » Wed Nov 09, 2011 6:10 pm

I am going to visit a law school dean, well actually making several visits, and I am meeting with the dean of a school (not the dean of admissions). I have spoken with their admissions representatives before and already know about the programs and many things about the school. What will he ask me, what should I ask him?

Thanks

I would genuinely try to show an interest in the programs and specialities of the school. Some general questions to consider:

If the school has a clinic program:
1.) I am really interested in your school's clinic program. Can you tell me more about them? Which programs attract the most student interest? which ones would you say are underrated? What do professors look for when selecting students to work with in clinic programs?

2.) What makes a student successful at [X School]? What mechanisms does the school have in place to ensure the success of its students, both in school and beyond the boundaries of the classroom?

3.) In what ways is [X school] looking to expand and improve? What areas are students focused on changing? What areas do students voice the most enthusiam?

I can write a million more, but the general point is to express your interest and continue to learn more about the intricacies of the school. Do your homework, read up on the school beforehand and demonstrate your interest in wanting to make an impact on the school community.
