I hope that you had a wonderful summer break! As you settle back into the autumn routine of classes and homework, some of you may be thinking about your next steps, and considering a career in law. If you are thinking of starting law school next fall, you will hopefully already have begun the application process. See our suggested timeline. If you are an auditory learner, you may enjoy this podcast: Planning Your Law School Application Timeline.
It can be easy, as you get wrapped up in personal statements and LSAT scores, to be solely concerned with the question: “Will I get in to law school?” However, I encourage you to also be asking yourself, “Do I want to go to this law school?” and “Is law school the right choice for me?”
Several law schools are coming to campus this fall to discuss the admission process in general, as well as give info about their particular school. I encourage you to come, not only to ask questions about how to improve your application, but also to learn more about the different schools: their programs and culture. Also, if you are able, a law school forum is a great way to meet with admissions reps from a number of schools.
Look here throughout the fall for info & tips on law school admissions and the field of law.
Mark your calendars:
- Law School Admissions Panel: Monday, September 26th: Davis Center, Jost Foundation Room
- Boston Law Forum: Saturday, September 17th in Boston
