I've never heard of such a thing. What makes it sword-like? Is it an umbrella with a scabbard or something?

I own that one, myself. Not only am I surprised if people could mistake it for an actual sword, I'm surprised when people even notice what it's supposed to resemble to begin with.

I would advise against that. This is your first chance to make a good impression. Obviously you don't need to wear a $1500 suit, but a decent brooks brothers suit with nice shoes, a decent tie would go a long way in developing a reputation for caring about your profession/colleagues.


I agree. The first inpression is important. It's better to wear something presentable. But remember that clothes don't make the man :)

Wait. Y'all really believe that people are going to remember you from ASW because you wore a nice tie and a decent suit (other than anyone you might intentionally stay in contact with) when there's like... 4-5 months between ASW and when you actually attend LS?

...... Really?

You guys know that you've already been admitted, right? Who do you think is going to be impressed by you at an event where their entire job is to suck up to you and sell you on their program?

Any thoughts on what to wear for a law school tour? I know this is not as important. Just want to make sure I don't commit any faux pas by wearing my ball gown.

Whenever I see people all dressed up for their law school tours or ASW or whatever, I just laugh.

Just wear a nice dress or a skirt and a dressy top. I guess it largely depends on the school and the climate though.

My rule of thumb for these sorts of things is wear what I would wear to Thanksgiving dinner at my grandmother's house. Nice, but not extravagant.

Solid advice. If man, a button down and jeans/chinos. If woman, same, or skirt or jeans + blouse/button down. If neither, any of the above.
