Law School Fair Panels

LSAT or GRE? – 7 p.m.

LSAT? GRE? Neither? Both? What's ahead for the law school application process?

Representatives from the Law School Admission Council (LSAC), Georgetown Law, Harvard Law School, Northwestern Pritzker School of Law and the University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law will discuss the future of standardized testing in the law school application process.

Paying for Law School – 7 p.m.

Need-based aid? Merit-based aid? What do they mean and how do you get them? Does applying for aid hurt your chances of admission? How much can you borrow in federal student loans? Private loans? Will the federal government really pay off your loans for you?

Get the answers from professionals who work with admissions and financial aid every day.

Mock Law School Admissions Panel – 8 p.m.

Behind the Law School Admissions Curtain - What Happens After You Hit Submit?

What's the real secret of getting admitted to law school? What does it really take to get into your top law school? Is it all just about the "numbers"?

Find out how an admissions committee considers your law school application—whether it's at your "stretch school" or your "safety school."

Whether you intend to apply to the school presenting this program or not, this presentation will be eye-opening, and you will take away candid, "inside" information that will help you be the "Yes – Admit" applicant wherever you choose to apply.

Come prepared for a lively, interactive exercise!

Meet the Law School "Gate Keepers":

  • Boston College Law School
  • Notre Dame Law School
  • University of Richmond School of Law
  • Widener University Commonwealth Law School

This is always a popular panel. The audience is given heavily redacted copies of actual applicant files. The panelists and audience act as the admissions committee, discussing the pros and cons of each applicant. At the end, the group votes on who to admit or not. Finally, the panelists reveal which of the applicants actually got admitted to their schools and the reasons behind the decisions.
