Kaplan Test Prep Takes Law School Applicants Behind The Curtain To Answer The Question: “How Do Admissions Officers REALLY Decide Who Gets In?”

Stocks in this article: GHC

Kaplan Test Prep’s most popular event for aspiring law school students is back, for its fourth straight year. “You Be The Judge – A Mock Admissions Roundtable,” a special episode on Kaplan’s legal affairs web show “The 180,” webcasting live, Tuesday, August 26, at 8:00 PM ET, will give pre-law students a behind-the-scenes look at what really happens during a law school admissions committee meeting.

Viewers will get to watch admissions officers from New York University School of Law (@nyulaw) and the George Washington University Law School (@gwlaw) and former admissions officers from the University of Virginia School of Law (@UVALaw) and Boston College Law School (@bclaw) conduct a realistic mock admissions meeting. They will review, discuss and analyze “sample” applicants’ LSAT scores, undergraduate transcripts, personal statements, diversity statements, letters of recommendation, resumes and work experience, academic misconducts, criminal records, application addenda and more to show attendees exactly how they arrive at their ultimate decisions.

Event attendees can see the applications in advance by either downloading them at http://blog.kaplanlsat.com/wp-content/uploads/The_180_Mock_Apps_2014.pdf or viewing them at bitly.com/the180apps2014.

During the event, attendees can sound off with their own opinions on “the committee’s” deliberations and verdicts as part of a live Twitter chat, using the hashtag #Kaplan180. Plus they can ask questions directly to Kaplan’s admissions experts, who will be live tweeting from @KaplanLSATPrep.

“This must-attend event will give aspiring law school students an exclusive look into how actual decision makers arrive at their final decisions of who gets in, who doesn’t, and the reasoning behind it. The admissions panel we assembled work or have worked at some of the country’s top JD programs, so they can accurately give attendees unparalleled behind the doors access,” said Jeff Thomas, director of pre-law programs, Kaplan Test Prep. “While a law school applicant’s LSAT score remains by far the most important admissions factor, this event will give attendees a complete, holistic view of exactly what else top law schools look for.”
