Chosen for private lunch with Dean... What should I ask?

Postby SJU2010 » Wed Apr 24, 2013 2:14 pm

I have been chosen as one of under 10 people to have lunch/tea with a law school dean. I have been offered a great scholarship there. It is not a top school in the nation; but I plan to attend because of the scholarship. What questions should I ask during the lunch/tea?

The dean is, in all likelihood, a crook. Treat them like any other criminal you'd run into.

Why the lunch provides tea but not booze

What do you mean by "not top school in the nation"? Quite a difference between Minnesota or Cooley.

Ask him if he feels badly that the tuition rate at his school has risen at 8 times the rate of inflation over the past dozen years and whether or not he feels remotely bad for the close to 50% or more students that graduate from his school and only have a job at Starbucks to look forward to after 3 years and a $200,000 investment.

Do not be too impressed with these people - they do not deserve it. Law school professors/deans are people with JDs that had zero ability to hack it as a practicing lawyer.

And the dean sure as shit isn't going to take a personal investment in getting you a job, so I wouldn't feel bad about ruffling his feathers.

Ask him how you go about getting the job of law school dean? After all, in what other line of work (other than a weather forecaster) can you have a 65% or better failure rate and still earn over 800K... http://www.businessinsider.com/highest-paid-law-dean-in-the-country-2013-1

Your post history indicates it's Pace. If that's true, skip the lunch and study for your LSAT retake instead.

No, it's not. Please don't bump old threads to respond to a question that was asked and answered months ago, to address something that happened months ago.
