During the rest of December and early January we do not offered scheduled visits due to reading period, final exams, and winter break. The law school will be closed December 24- January 1.
We will begin our spring visit schedule on January 13, 2014. Stay tuned for details.
Visitors are welcome to stop by the Office of Admissions and pick up a copy of the Self-Guided Tour. You may also schedule an informational meeting with your Admissions Counselor.
To be fair to all applicants, we do not offer evaluative interviews. Our Committee on Admissions expects candidates to detail their achievements, challenges, and academic abilities in their application materials.
