Informal Meeting with Admissions

Informal Meeting with Admissions
« on: October 14, 2009, 08:09:43 AM »
I'm a prospective student looking at schools in Washington DC. I have lined up an informal meeting with an admissions adviser to discuss some questions. This is the second meeting I've had of this kind ( I did one in NYC in August ) However, this is my number one school and I really want to make a great impression. I'm a professional person by nature, and I'll be coming straight from another meeting so I'll look nice, but would it be appropriate to bring my resume to give to them? Any other tips? I appreciate it so much!!

If any admissions staff are rude to you or act even slightly jerky, maintain your polite demeanor no matter what. Forget the resume. Also realize that these informal meetings aren't going to boost your app much. No matter what anyone tells you, including admissions staff, most law school admission decisions are made based on GPA + LSAT, with a heavy emphasis on LSAT.
