CONGRATULATIONS AND WELCOME ADMITTED STUDENTS: The contents of this page are intended for the use of admitted students for the Fall 2013 class. This information will be periodically updated when new and relevant information becomes available.
Admitted Student Open House
The First Year Preview (Admitted Student Open House) will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2013, from 10:00-3:00 at the School of Law. The program will include a tour of the law school, an overview of the first year program, a mock law class, small group question and answer sessions with current students as well as Financial Aid and Career counselors, and lunch. If you are interested in attending, please register by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 800-782-6665. Admitted students may also look for their invitation to arrive by mail in March.
First Year Orientation for all students begins on Tuesday evening, August 20, with a welcoming dinner. Day student sessions continue the following morning August 21 and end on Friday afternoon August 23. Evening student sessions will continue on the evenings of Wednesday August 21 and Thursday August 22. In the Spring, the Orientation Committee will post a specific page of materials for entering law students. It will provide information about Orientation, an FAQ, useful links, lists of law-related books and movies, and other information for entering law students.
Once accepted, to reserve your seat in the Fall 2013 class, you must submit two separate non-refundable seat deposits. For those admitted prior to April 1, the first seat deposit of $100 is due by April 15. Those admitted after April 1, will have an extended first deposit deadline indicated in their admit packets. The second non-refundable seat deposit of $400 is due by June 1. To pay online by electronic check or credit card (Mastercard or Discover), please click here.
We have launched an Admitted Students page on Facebook. The page is an excellent way to find out valuable information and to ask questions of administration, faculty, alumni, and current students. You may also ask questions of your fellow incoming students. Discussions in the past have included: first year experience, first year academics, housing, pre-orientation events, Orientation information, 2013 incoming class news and announcements, faculty and staff, student services, summer readings and movies, financial aid, and miscellaneous. We encourage you to request an invite to join the WNE Law-2013 Entering Class Facebook Page.
You must provide an official, final transcript showing your undergraduate degree and the date it was awarded. To satisfy the American Bar Association (ABA) requriements, the final transcript should arrive directly from your undergraduate institution before Orientation. Unfortunately, the transcript you supplied to the Law School Admissions Council for your LSDAS report does not comply with the ABA requirements. Should you have any questions regarding your final transcript, please contact the Admissions office.
