Upon graduating from Harvard College and after 8 years as a high school  teacher, Mr. Cornblatt joined Georgetown Law's Office of Admissions in 1980 and became Dean of Admissions in 1991.  Over more than four decades, Mr. Cornblatt has been a pioneer in the field, from dramatically increasing the use of evaluative applicant interviews to expanding the diversity of law schools and the legal profession through an innovative high school outreach program.  Last year, he oversaw the most unprecedented year in law school admissions history, during which over 14,000 people -- the most ever at any law school -- applied to Georgetown Law.  Drawing on his vast experience and unrivaled position within the profession, Mr. Cornblatt will share his perspectives on historical admissions trends, the complicated role of school rankings, future developments within higher education admissions -- and what law schools are really looking for when they admit students.
