This is a post for the planners, I suppose. While March and April are a ways off, we wanted to let you know we have recently decided to expand our Preview Day for Waitlisted Students from one day to four. Our hope is that with four Preview Days, we might be able to better accommodate those students who are interested in joining us for these events. Their dates are as follows:
Friday, March 4
Monday, March 7
Wednesday, March 9
Saturday, April 9
The format for each Preview Day will be the same. During their time on campus, attendees will have an opportunity to take a tour of the law school, participate in a Q&A session with admissions representatives, and schedule an individual meeting. Additional details, including registration information, will be available in the coming months. Be sure to monitor our webpage for students on our waiting list for updates.
Even if you can’t join us for a Preview Day, there are many other ways you can connect with an admissions representative. We offer phone interviews and individual visits. Most of our incoming students will visit at some point in their decision-making process, and, if you are seriously thinking about W&L Law, it is imperative that you do your research long before you are ever offered a seat in our incoming class. If you would like to schedule an individual visit, please be sure to check out our Visit Schedule. Provided that classes are in session, all individual visits include the opportunity to attend a class, take a tour of the law school led by a current student, and meet with an admissions representative.
Please note, doing one of the above is more than ample opportunity for you to learn about our law school, so please do not feel like you need to schedule a phone intervew, visit campus AND join us for our Preview Day to fully communicate your interest in our law program. Similarly, if you come for an individual visit, it is not necessary for you to join us for Preview Day. We know you have limited time and resources, and we do not want you to feel pressured to travel to Lexington multiple times in the coming months. Sometimes, a phone interview is enough for you to get a better sense of our school and have any questions you might have answered.
