Mock Admissions Committee Workshop - March 12, 2019

Date: Tuesday, March 12, 2019
Time: 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. (**check-in beginning at 5:00 p.m.)
Location: Southwestern Law School Campus

In one night, learn what law school admissions committees discuss during a committee meeting, and get the insider’s perspective on the law school experience.

  • What do law schools look for in an applicant?
  • How are different components of an application assessed?
  • What does “holistic review” mean anyway?

We cover these questions and more at our Mock Admissions Committee Workshop presented by Lisa Gear, Assistant Dean for Admissions at Southwestern Law School.

During the workshop, Dean Gear will examine how an admissions committee reviews and evaluates an applicant’s letters of recommendation, personal statement, addenda, LSAT score(s), and GPA.

At this interactive workshop, you get to be on the committee!
