Campus Visit- What Questions Should I Be Asking?

Postby Baseball_2013 » Fri Apr 12, 2013 12:22 pm

Hello Everyone,

I am going to be doing a campus visit this next week with my wife. I have already come up with a small list of questions I plan on asking, but I was wondering what other people ask while visiting their prospective law school. I will be meeting with the Assistant Director of Admissions so I would like to have a solid list of pertinent questions to ask. Any ideas? I would really appreciate some input. Thanks everyone!

How many graduates got jobs where they are practicing as attorneys or need their JD?

How many got them on campus?

Things I get asked on tours:

Where do most students live? How much are they paying?
What is the study environment like (competitive, cooperative, friendly, etc)?
Is the student group for [xxx] pretty active? (women, black students, LGBT students, etc.) What kind of activities do they do?
Are the professors approachable outside of class?
What electives are open to 1Ls? (NU 1Ls get two electives spring term)
What does the career services office do to help? Will they be helpful to me even though [I want to get a job in X state/work in X field/I want public interest]?
Is there plenty of room for everyone to study on campus? Do most students study here or do people go home/to coffee shops?
How do students register for classes after the 1L required classes? (Bidding, etc.) Is it hard to get the classes you want?
