catmommy was there?
I didn't see you.
Or maybe I did.
Johnny C if I used one word to describe it it would be LOUD. I was amazed they didn't at least have the rows divided with some sort of sound baffling. It was like talking to someone in a full sports stadium.
Overall I'd say it was worth it. Informative for sure and I'd say well attended. Some of the counselors/law school reps were good and answered questions; some were just going through the motions.
The local school tables were the most busy. Seems things were localized except for the t14 schools and they had business as well.
I had hoped to be more impressed with J Marshall of Atl.
The questions I asked the most were:
Is the LSAT in December too late for merit scholarship consideration?
How old is your oldest student?
I got varied answers. Probably about 70-80% said that I'd still get considered for the most part in merit money if my numbers were good. About 10-20% did say it was getting late in the cycle.
The rep I was most impressed with was an admissions guy from Tulane. He said Dec was getting pretty late and that I should be sure first of all to make sure that the LSAT was prepped for properly EVEN if it meant waiting a year more. (Earlcat might want to see that!!)
I stayed there about 3 hrs and it did give me some direction.
There were a few more oldie-hopefuls there than I anticipated and most admissions folk weren't fazed at all that an old guy was inquiring.
