Meeting with the Graduate Legal Studies Staff

Here are some tips to make the most of the Virtual Information Session:
DO…

  • Prepare questions for the session. We cannot anticipate all the questions that you may have, and you may have trouble remembering everything you wanted to ask. It is helpful when candidates have a list of specific questions based on the information they have already gathered from our brochure and website, allowing them to guide the discussion. Candidates will have the opportunity to have their specific questions answered during the Q&A period at the end of the session.

DON'T…

  • Fail to do your homework. Scheduling a meeting to ask about English Proficiency scores, application deadlines, or other information easily found in our brochure or on the website is not a good use of your time. Use the resources available through our website and LSAC.org to help you determine what unanswered questions you still have before your meeting.
  • Ask the Graduate Legal Studies staff to predict your chances for admission. The Admissions Committee considers many factors when making admissions decisions. Decisions are based on the overall strength of an applicant's file and careful review of all application materials; not solely on English proficiency and GPA. We cannot predict your chances for admission.
  • Ask for personal statement or resume revisions. Graduate Legal Studies staff cannot assist prospective candidates with the drafting or revision of the personal statement or resume.
