Hello from the New Pre-Law Advisor
I've been delighted to meet so many Jumbos in September, and to help you in the application process. I'm looking forward to meeting many more of you in the months to come.
As you can see, the travel restrictions of COVID-19 have made law schools find other ways to inform, recruit, and connect with prospective law school students. There are so many Zoom events, and each represents a good way to hear how admissions deans think about the work they do, how law schools are responding to coronavirus and the social and political challenges of our time, and to get more information about whether, where, and when law school fits into your life.
I've included 3 panel choices happening next week -- but if those times aren't good, you can find many more virtual panels, law fairs, and events here on the LSAC events page, or by Googling "law school virtual admissions event".
My prediction is that the current law school admission cycle will have a higher-than-usual number of applicants, and so admission will be very competitive. Because enrollment by international applicants may be uncertain, I expect law schools to have larger wait lists than in past years. Although it is common to want to know as soon as possible whether and where you will be accepted, my advice to applicants this year is to work very hard to polish and present your strongest application, and to prepare yourself for a wait before you learn where you'll be accepted. You'll have the support of Tufts at every step along the way.
