It’s not all about numbers—honestly! Ever wonder how a law school admissions committee makes decisions? Join deans of admission from the University of Chicago, the University of Michigan, and the University of Pennsylvania law schools for a realistic look at how they review applications. Panelists and session participants will debate the merits of actual law school applications to select the best. The law school panel will use role-play—with some arguing for and others against the low LSAT candidate or the candidate with the low GPA—and the audience can see how a committee member might respond, positively or negatively, to elements of a candidate’s file. The audience will be asked to vote at the end and will then hear how the real cases were decided. You’ll get an insider’s view on what works – and what doesn’t – in the competitive law school admissions process.
