Thoughts on bringing guests to a visit?
« on: March 04, 2009, 09:14:18 AM »
So I know this has been talked about over and over again, but what is the general policy on bringing guests (such as a significant other) to an ASD? For instance, I think W&L encourages it. I can't find any information on Vanderbilt's ASD though... I will probably just call the admissions office and ask at some point. But I was wondering whether it's a faux pas or frowned upon in any way?

I attended the St. Thomas ASD last weekend and brought my fiance.  I would say that about three quarters of the admitted students brought at least one guest.  Parents are a little tacky to me, but a significant other seems good.  St. Thomas was more than accomodating to the guests and were really welcoming to them too.

I see nothing wrong with it at every place I've visited many people brought along family, SO's included in this context. Of course there are malcontents who views things differently but I say f them bring whoever you want and or need to bring along.

While all the advice was good... this was clearly the best. Thanks guys!

I'm bringing my parents and my gf; I think its important for all three of them to see and understand the law school culture since they're going to have to listen to me complain for the next three years.

I didn't bring anyone to the ASD that I attended, but most people did. I might have brought my husband, but he had to work.

I think it depends on how your guest will act. In my experience, SOs are better to bring than parents. This is just because from what I saw, the SOs were good about letting the student make their own impression on people. They generally didn't ask too many questions or talk over the student. Parents definitely did. Moms would answer questions for the student instead of letting their kids talk. It really made the students look inexperienced and young.

Some of my schools have asked for an RSVP for the student and the number of guests they are bringing. So I assume that they expect people to bring guests with them.

I wouldn't bring anyone to a visit. Today I went to visit UofH and two people brought KIDS!  :-\
