Mark Your Calendars – Week of March 5

Thank you to the students that attended the Negotiating Scholarships Workshop last Monday!

Save the Date for the next Pre-Law Advising Services Event!! Taking a Gap Year (Or More) Before Law School

Are you considering working, volunteering, traveling, or doing something else before attending law school? If so, how can you use that time effectively to improve your applicant profile? Do you want to know more about going straight through to law school after undergrad? This event helps students explore different paths to law school. The panel will feature three current law students–two with work experience and one who went directly from undergrad to law school–to answer your questions and discuss the pros and cons of going straight to law school versus taking a gap year (or more) and working.
