Question about Law School Visits
« on: August 11, 2004, 07:49:52 PM »
So, I'm home for another week and a half and I was thinking about visiting a couple top fourteen schools in my area. Does anyone have any insight about how to handle visits like these. Are you supposed to call and make an appointment with an admissions official, arrange a tour, or just show up? Also, does anyone know if visits to a campus can provide a boost in one's admissions prospects?

You should call in advance, and the admissions office can arrange for a tour, have a student take you to lunch, schedule you to talk with the dean of admissions, etc.

But note that visiting the school is fairly worthless if classes aren't in session.

Also, I get the feeling that tours can definitely boost admissions chances, since it shows the school you are genuinely interested in them.

Ginatio, I hereby demand that you take me to lunch after you start at Penn. I work across the street. You're buyin'.  ;)

make sure you ask for appointments with career services and with specific faculty.  i can only use my own case as an example, but with every school, i saw down and talked with the Patent/IP faculty to determine the program strength and job placement.

actually... if you're a prospective student, I can probably get the admissions office to spring for it.  ;)

But I want you to pay.

I crack myself up. I admit it.

This is reminding me of the scene in Better Off Dead when he picks up his date to the dance and she calculates how much he should just give her up front.

Anyway, College Buffet will not do, although I will consider the Food Court at 34th & Walnut if you submit the appropriate Decent Lunch Waiver request and meet the criteria.
