Berkeley Law Admissions Dean Ed Tom is coming to Seattle!

ed-tomI’ve heard many law school admissions officers speak over the years. Some of them have been good, but most of them have been mediocre.

It wasn’t until I heard Ed Tom speak that I discovered what a law school admissions talk could be.

It was 2007 and I had been a prelaw adviser at the University of Washington (UW) for a little over three years. I went to Ed’s talk because I wanted to learn more about Berkeley Law. To be honest, I thought this would be another one of those boring law school admissions speeches.

Boy, was I wrong!

Ed’s talk was so interesting, informative and amusing that I couldn’t stop taking notes! I scribbled the whole time, trying to get it all down.

When it was over, I went up to thank him for his talk and then later typed up his speech and posted it on the UW prelaw web site (after getting his permission, of course). It’s been on the Prelaw Guru tips page since I started my business and it will stay up for as long as I have my business.

If you haven’t read it yet, check out Ed Tom’s Top 10 Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Go To Law School here.

Ed doesn’t always go over these top 10 questions during his talk, but his presentation is always interesting, informative and amusing. He’s been in the law school admissions business for more than 20 years–the man knows his stuff.

Whether you’re applying to Berkeley Law or not, you will learn great tips about applying to law school and whether law school is right for you. If you’re seriously thinking about law school, you need to attend Ed’s talk.
