CLEO – Training tomorrow’s lawyers, Preparing tomorrow’s leaders

NOVA Students #PRELAW Students 2017 - Seats are Limited!
WHAT: Free pre-law seminars
WHEN: Saturday, March 11, 2017
WHERE: American Washington College of Law, Washington, DC I was really motivated by [ASAP] on how to successfully apply for law school and tackle the LSAT. I loved the panel of current law students as well as the first-hand knowledge we received from members of the LSAC Board [and law school admission staff].

Super Tip!! Now is the time to get a Letter of Recommendation. After Thanksgiving ask your professor to write a brief letter that you can use for scholarships and internships.

Go to the Professor who knows your work best . . . weak letters are worse than no letter.

Questions . . . ask your advisor for help!

[11/22/16]   Happy Thanksgiving! Remember that the college closes on Wednesday at 12 noon. We will reopen on Monday, November 28.
