True Confessions of a Pre-Law Advisor.
Matthews, Drue
Perspectives of a law school advisor on the advising role as seen by the student and the law school and issues that are relevant to student needs are presented. Questions that students frequently ask the law school advisor and the legitimacy of the advisor as a screener in getting students accepted into law schools are discussed. Concern over the qualifications of applicants, including the quality of their educational experiences as well as their Law School Admission Test scores and grade point averages is addressed. Some of the pressures on the law school advisor and the need for well informed visitors to campuses from the law schools are noted. The need for timeliness in responding to student applications, the role of the NAPLA, and factors used in admission decisions at Cornell University are also covered. (SW)
