Meet with the Admissions Staff
The Office of Admissions invites you to visit the Law Center to learn more about us. Prospective students may visit a class, take a tour, or attend one of several information sessions throughout the application season. Out-of-town applicants are also encouraged to visit us at one of our many recruiting events across the nation. For more information on these opportunities, please call 713-743-2280 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Fall tours will be available September 8th through November 24th on Mondays and Fridays at 12pm.
Tours last approximately 40 minutes. Appointments are required so that we can arrange for a tour guide to be available. You may schedule a tour by calling 713.743.2280 or by sending an email to email@example.com in advance of the date you would like to visit. If you will be traveling from out-of-town, please confirm your appointment prior to making your travel plans as our Admissions staff are frequently traveling to recruiting events nationwide and may not be available for appointments or tours on certain days.
Please arrive at the Office of Admissions prior to the tour time, and be sure to allow sufficient time to locate the law school and find parking. Latecomers should update the Office of Admissions as to their expected arrival time by calling 713-743-2280. Please note that multiple guests may be scheduled for a certain tour, so it may not be possible to delay a tour for latecomers. Missed tours may be rescheduled for a later date.
The Office of Admissions is happy to arrange a visit to a first year law school class during the Fall and Spring semesters. Class visits are by appointment only, and should be scheduled at least 48 hours in advance of the class you would like to attend. Class visits may be scheduled by calling 713.743.2280, or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Fall 2014, class visits will be available September 8th through November 24th.
Once your class visit is scheduled, please help us extend the following courtesies to the professor and students whose class you will be visiting: visitors must be escorted to the classroom prior to the start of class, and must stay for the entire class period so as not to disrupt the class. We regret that we cannot seat latecomers once class has begun, so please arrive at the Office of Admissions at least 15 minutes prior to class time. Please be sure to allow sufficient time to park and locate the Law Center.

Members of the admissions staff are available to speak with prospective applicants by appointment Monday through Friday. Appointments are available for phone or in-person consultations. Here are some tips to make the most of your appointment :
If you have applied to the JD program and were not offered admission, we encourage you to speak with a member of the admissions staff before applying again in a subsequent year. Application files are archived for one year. If you come in for counseling within the year that your file is archived,we will review your previous application file with you, helping you to identify strengths and weaknesses in your application, and explain to you the application review process. Re-applicant counseling is intended only to assist applicants in strengthening their applications. It is not required, and should not be regarded as an interview or forum for requesting reconsideration. Re-applicant counseling is offered from July-October.
