TJSL held an open house for admitted students on March 1-2, to give them a chance to tour the school, meet the admissions team, sit in on a law class and also meet with faculty and current students.
“It’s a huge decision and we want to make sure we answer all of your questions,” Assistant Admissions Director Justin Cruz told the group that toured the school on Friday morning.
For some prospective students, like Vanessa Valenzuela of Sacramento, the decision has been made: she’s coming to TJSL.
“I love the campus,” Valenzuela said after a tour led by TJSL student Yinka Glover 3L. “I especially love the library.”
Many of the students who toured were accompanied by family, friends and significant others.
“I like seeing so many diverse faces around the campus, especially as a minority,” said Kathy Franco of Los Angeles. “This campus is so pretty, so modern.”
Indeed, the impressive new campus was a big selling point for the prospective students.
“It is awesome,” said Zorik Zargaryan of Los Angeles. “The campus is beautiful.”
For Douglas Broadbent of Las Vegas, the environment on campus would be "a nice help with my studying,” who plans to be at the top of his law school class. Broadbent has narrowed his law school choices down to two, including TJSL.
“I wanted to come here to get some clarity,” Broadbent said, “and I’m getting it so far.”
On Saturday morning, a full presentation to all visiting students was scheduled, to give them a better understanding of what the TJSL experience is all about.
