Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do before Law Day?
Prioritize your list of schools to make effective use of your time at Law Day. If you have time, visit the websites of your top schools.

What should I wear?
First impressions count so give some thought to what you wear. Business casual works for Law Day; however, keep in mind “business casual” doesn’t mean “classroom casual.” Bottom line—you want the schools to remember you… not what you’re wearing.

I only have 30 minutes between classes… should I still come?
Yes!… but maximize your time by checking the list of schools before the fair and picking your top 3-5 schools. At Law Day, register and head straight to your top choice school. If there’s a long line move on to the next one on your list. 30 minutes is plenty of time to connect with 3-4 schools.

What should I bring with me?
Bring your questions for the schools (e.g., what are your course offerings?) and be prepared to answer questions (e.g., when do you want to attend law school?). No need to bring a resume.

Anything else I should know?
Use our Reference Letter Service to manage your letters of reference. Most graduate/professional schools request letters of reference as an important part of the application process. It’s most helpful to request letters of reference from GSIs/faculty during current courses rather than waiting until application time which might be several semesters later. Our Reference Letter Service will help you get an early start on this important part of the application process.
