What to Ask at an LSAC Law School Forum

I received a great comment on a previous post about LSAC Law School Forums that led me to provide some information about questions you should consider asking law school representatives at forums.

Here's a link about financial aid related questions to ask.

And here's a great list put together by the University of Nevada, Reno Career Services Department. The questions are fantastic. The key is NOT to ask each law school all of these questions. The key is to pick a few that are most important to you and ask them to several law schools so you get some basis for comparison.

Here are 3 tips for law school forums:

1. Please remember not to take up too much of any one person's time.

2. If you do have a meaningful conversation with a law school's representative, get that person's business card and send a thank you e-mail or note.

3. Remember it's in the best interests of the school to encourage you to apply, so don't take anything they say too seriously or as being extremely encouraging of your application - no false hope just because someone hands you a fee waiver for the application.

Happy Hunting!
