from Senior Admission Coordinator Carol O'Hea:
As spring approaches, we in the Office of Admission are preparing to welcome prospective students to the law school for our second admitted students’ program on March 23rd and 24th. Students from all over the country have been invited for a two-day showcase of all the wonderful opportunities TLS has to offer. We stress to admitted students how important it is to visit the schools they are considering attending and make an effort to give them a taste of Tulane’s unique atmosphere and curriculum during their stay. Many of the attendees will be experiencing New Orleans for the first time!
Friday’s highlights include sitting in on a first-year Constitutional Law class, lunch with current TLS students and faculty, a presentation by our Career Development Office, and a panel at which current students offer candid discussion about law school and living in New Orleans. Admitted students can also attend sessions on our clinical programs, on financing a legal education, and on the wide array of student organizations and activities available at TLS. Saturday gives our visitors an opportunity to explore Tulane’s beautiful campus, learn more about the first-year curriculum and certificate programs, and tour the uptown neighborhood where our students live. For our staff, visiting days are a special time in the admissions process when we are able to put faces with names and meet the students we've come to know on paper and via e-mail throughout the application process.
