Two of our three admitted students' visiting programs have now taken place, with the third scheduled for April 9-10. We tinker each year with the schedule based on the previous year's comments, and this year things seemed to work particularly well. One session we added this year is a Saturday session on academics. A different faculty member handled this session on each of the two Saturdays, and I was struck by several things. First, these folks are terrific at what they do. I listened in virtually total admiration of the combination of eloquence and intelligence and humor. The two professors had very different styles, and they were both extremely effective in conveying information. Second, with very little guidance as to what I wanted them to talk about ("I want this to be a session that focuses on academics," I told each of them.), I was struck by how differently they approached the topic while conveying the exact same information--which was, bottom line, that there really isn't a way to prepare for law school, there isn't anything one can read, there are no short-cuts. You just have to jump in and be ready to work hard. From the reaction of the attendees, it appears that I wasn't the only one who was impressed by these sessions. So many of our guests stated afterwards that coming to law school no longer feels quite so scary and mysterious.
