We are in full swing of our recruiting schedule. Last week I was in Baltimore, Washington DC, Charlottesville, VA and Durham, NC. Home for the weekend to water the plants and to go to the dry cleaner and get ready for week 2. Monday afternoon I left for Boston, MA and will end this week in New Haven, CT. This is a fun time of year for me, I get to see beautiful parts of the country while meeting terrific prospective law students. The fall colors are in full bloom amoung the trees of Massachusetts. I am doing panels with Michigan, Pennsylvania and Virginia law schools. At these panels we do a mock admissions committee meeting and review four applications and together we vote for who should get admitted. This presentation is very helpful in showing the positive and negative things that we see in applications. Each of the applications presented are different and show how difficult the decisions are for the committee. This is a very useful exercise and those attending get a lot of good information. The students ask a lot of great questions and disect the applications just like an admissions committee. After the presentation we stay around and answer specific questions about our schools. You can also pick up our viewbooks and other information about our schools. After this week, I have three more recruiting weeks and then it will be time to start reading files and finding the members of the Class of 2010!!!
