Welcome to 203!

September 13, 2007

We know, we know. It seems that there’re just too many law school admissions blogs to read as you prepare to submit your applications this year. Given the amount of “required reading” you have – in addition to studying for the LSAT, writing essays, and oh, by the way, keeping up your schoolwork or your job – we thought we’d mix it up a little here in New Haven to make things a bit more interesting.

First, if you’re visiting this blog, you’re probably most interested in our admissions process, as well as information on the reasons why Yale might be a great fit for you. So we’re going to focus on these topics by offering three columns. The first, “Ask Asha,” will answer your questions about applying to Yale and the courses and programs offered here. You can submit your questions to 203blog@yale.edu – I will get to as many as I can! In addition, our Director of Admissions, Craig Janecek, will provide regular updates (a “Craig’s List,” if you will) on people and events of note at the Law School. Finally, Associate Director of Admissions, Sarah Arimoto-Mercer, will give you a glimpse of life in New Haven through “Sarah and the City,” a column about activities, restaurants, and social events around tow

We know you are also interested in hearing about student life here at YLS. Rather than ask students to filter their thoughts through the “official” lens of the Admissions Office, we have created a separate Student Perspectives Blog where students will offer their honest input on a number of student issues. We hope that you’ll find both of these blogs informative and that you’ll decide to apply to YLS this fall!

Asha Rangappa

Dean of Admissions, YLS
