Does anyone have any great questions to ask during visits to potential law schools?

something you want to know about that isn't on their website

I'm pretty sure visitations are only a prison thing. I think that for every other use of the idea of visiting, the word visit is used.

Lol!! I couldn't put my finger on why that sounded so odd. Thank you.

1.  Ask the person leading you around (if they are a student) if they like the school.  They are probably programmed to give you a very prepared response…..so keep asking why and dig deeper.  You want to figure out is this person sincere or are they trying to sell you the program.

2.  A big part of your visit is to get a feeling of the culture.  Walk around on your own, try starting a conversation, ask for help with directions….are these the kind of people you want to be around for 3 years?

3.  Ask to sit in on a class – afterwards start talking with students not connected with the tour and ask them their feelings of the school.

Best of luck!
