How to maximize your advising experience!
No question is too small or too large, we are here to help you through the process of exploring your interest in attending law school and pursuing a career in the legal profession. Below are a few tips on utilizing advising services to maximize your experience!
- Start now! We work with students at any point in their academic journey from freshman year to post-graduation. It is never too early to start - don't hesitate to begin working with our office as soon as you begin considering law school.
- Attend programming and workshops hosted by the PLAS office to help fine-tune and individualize questions for one-on-one advising.
- Stay connected to resources. We share considerable insights through our online platforms and social media. Make a habit of checking these resources on a regular basis either daily, weekly, or monthly depending on how close you are to the application process. Many of our resources are also archived and can be searched to access past information on topics of interest to you!
- Reach out even if you are uncertain. Sometimes we hear from individuals who have waited to utilize services because they weren't certain if law school was the right choice for them - that's ok! We are here to help you explore your interest in legal education and careers - sometimes individuals ultimately decide that a path in law is not right for them. Don't wait to start engaging and asking these questions now - whether or not you ultimately decide to attend law school we can assist you in academic, extracurricular, and professional planning to ensure that you are as prepared as possible to apply if you decide law school is the right choice for you!
