On April 14, the S.J. Quinney College of Law at the University of Utah is holding a law school application workshop. If you are thinking about applying to law school in the next couple of years, even if you have no intention of going to the U, you should go to the workshop.
Reyes Aguilar, the Associate Dean of Admissions at the Quinney College of Law, will conduct the workshop. Dean Aguilar is involved in national law school admissions and is a terrific wealth of information regarding all things related to law school admissions. He will provide an overview of the application process, helping you understand not only the process of applying to the U’s law school but giving you valuable information about applying to law school generally. He will talk about the individual components of your application, including the LSAT, the personal statement, letters of reference, and the LSDAS report. He will offer suggestions on the various components, including what should be done when, and what he especially is looking for in an application. He will answer some of the most common questions when applying to law school, and will be available to answer your particular questions.
I have heard Dean Aguilar give this workshop many times and I recommend it no matter where you are in the process. If you are just starting to think about applying to law school, (“what’s the LSAT?”) he will help you set up a framework for what you need to accomplish, how to do it, and how long it might take. If you are further into the process, (“who should I have write my letters of reference?” “what do I put in a personal statement?”) he will give you some helpful tips to make your application as excellent as possible. If you have some lingering questions (“what if I have a DUI on my record?” “how will you treat failed but retaken undergraduate classes?” “am I at a disadvantage if I don’t have any diversity factors?” “do I really have to get transcripts from SLCC even if I only took a yoga class there?”), he is the man to ask.
