2016 Law Ball Survey Results

Simon Cameron (2L)

Each year, Ultra Vires surveys all law ball attendees. The results are analyzed and collated here for the benefits of future years.

  • There is no statistical connection between LSAT score and success at law ball.
  • There is no statistical connection between grades and success at law ball.
  • There is no statistical way of measuring success at law ball.

Ultra Vires also received comments from attendees.

  • “Grades will get you in the door, but they lose their importance once law ball begins. The people at my table were not impressed by my transcript.”
  • “I was expecting more substantive discussion, but it was very conversational. People didn’t even seem to care what I learned as a RA.”
  • “They will tell you otherwise, but everyone is at law ball for themselves. Don’t trust anyone ever again.”
  • “Go to as many practice law balls as you possibly can.”
  • “Try and get business cards from everyone you meet. Send thank you letters in the evening.”
