Mock Law School Admissions Panel
On Monday, November 13, 2017, deans of admissions from the University of Richmond School of Law and Widener University Commonwealth Law School are scheduled to visit Blacksburg and to lead Virginia Tech students in a simulation of deliberation and decision making by a law school admissions committee. Those who attend this event, which is open to the entire University community, will be given the opportunity to review copies of several law school applications (with identifying information removed), will be invited to ask questions of the admissions officers and to discuss with them the strengths and weaknesses of the files, and will be asked to vote on which student to admit to a hypothetical law school entering class. There will also be opportunities for follow-up questions and discussion. This exercise will provide valuable perspectives toward law school admissions processes.
The Mock Law School Admissions Panel will take place on Monday, November 13, from 7:00-8:30 p.m., in 3100 Torgersen Hall. This event is being sponsored by the University pre-law advisors, Virginia Tech's pre-law chapter of Phi Alpha Delta, and the Political Science Department.
Questions may be directed to Dr. Wayne Moore (firstname.lastname@example.org), University Pre-Law Advisor and Associate Professor of Political Science at Virginia Tech, or Golzar Yazdanshenas (VTPAD@vt.edu), President of Virginia Tech's pre-law chapter of Phi Alpha Delta.
