Student Ambassadors separate facts from myths

Prospective law students had an opportunity to find out what life in law school is really like by questioning Student Ambassadors and Admissions Director Jacqlene Nance during a Q&A; on Oct. 6. The informal setting (and free pizza) made the session very inviting to students wanting to ask questions such as:

  • Is the first year as hard as everyone says it is? (Not if you manage your time);
  • What do students wear to class? (For the most part it’s casual, but it’s also not uncommon to see people in suits); and
  • What made you choose KU Law? (Location, price, clinical opportunities and friendly competition were just some of the responses.

The night was a great success, with prospective students asking questions for about an hour. If you were unable or attend or simply want to ask more questions, please contact any of the Student Ambassadors or the Office of Admissions.
