For great justice: Frat attends conference
On September 28th, a few members of Florida Gulf Coast’s Phi Alpha Delta law chapter left for a forum in Miami. At the forum, panel workshops and law school admissions representatives were available to answer questions about preparation for graduate school. A plethora of universities attended to help guide students to the law school that would best fit their criteria. Students of FGCU’s law fraternity felt that it opened their minds to many possibilities that were not once an option.
Junior and President of the chapter, Caitlyn Caputo was content in stating, “I know everyone felt more confident about the application process [as well].”
The executive board of this academic fraternity found it important for their members to attend this conference. Not only is it crucial for juniors and seniors to be on top of their game with graduate school applications, but it is essential for sophomores to get their feet wet. Albert Claro, senior and treasurer of P.A.D. stressed this early on.
“My goal is to get members emerged in the process so they can start doing research about what they want to do” Claro said.
Phi Alpha Delta is excited for what is to come this year. This fraternity accepts all interested in law and plans on having guest speakers, such as lawyers, judges, and public officials, to speak to P.A.D. members about what to expect in the field.
“Our big event every year is the Pre-Law conference in Washington D.C., which I know everyone is excited about.” Caputo announced. But it’s not all fun and games. In order to even gain acceptance into law school, one needs to pass the intimidating LSAC exam. P.A.D. ensures that practices tests and study guides will be made available during meetings for everyone formulating their ideal plans for graduate school.
E-board staff of P.A.D. finds it is of high-priority for members to gain knowledge about how they can attain their future aspirations and helping them feel confident about taking the LSAC and applying for law schools.
Claro voiced, “The primary goal is helping members make a sound decision on law school.”
