Admitted Student Days

Welcome to Cornell Law School!

One of the best ways to learn more about the Law School and what it can offer you as an enrolled student is to visit us. We will be hosting two separate Admitted Student Days in 2015, on:

  • March 20
  • April 17

Admitted Student Days enable you to:

  • Sit in on a live first year class
  • Speak with current students
  • Meet our financial aid staff
  • Talk to a career services or public services professional
  • Take a tour of the Law School and Cornell's campus
  • Participate in the life of the school

The Admitted Student Day formal program will begin on these two Fridays at 9:00 a.m. and finish up about 4:00 p.m. The optional program will include a reception on Friday night and events on Saturday morning. Below is a description of the two evening events that will be different for each ASD. 

March 20:

Join us for a casino night from 6-9pm where you will be able to enjoy food and drinks while playing some blackjack and other casino games for your chance to win one of three prizes! Current students will be attending and buses will provide transportation, though some parking will be available.

April 17:

During the second ASD, Cornell will be hosting our annual Diversity Weekend Celebration. After an evening reception from 5-7pm with drinks and appetizers, join our current students for a dance party at a local Collegetown establishment where there will be dancing until 1am!
