Abstract Very little is known about the potential pool of law school applicants from which eventual law school attendees come. This is primarily due to the difficulty of collecting systematic information from the college students that make up this group. Large scale surveys of college students are both difficult and expensive and are frequently limited by their cross-sectional design. The increasing technological sophistication of college students and recent improvements in electronic surveys raises the question of whether the Internet—via e-mail and the web—can be used to conduct a large scale survey of the postgraduate plans of college students. In 1998, the Law School Admission Council provided funding for the Career Plans and Undergraduate Attitudes Project to assess the feasibility of such a survey. Part I of this report describes the organization and structure of the Career Plans and Undergraduate Attitudes Project and the results from the first-year survey. Part II examines the results from the second-year survey. The Career Plans and Undergraduate Attitudes Project was established to conduct a panel study of the postgraduate plans of a single cohort of students from three separate universities. The 1998 cohort of freshmen at three universities would be interviewed via e-mail and the web during the fall semester of each year. A panel study collects information from the same subjects multiple times. Thus at the end of the project it would be possible to describe the characteristics of law school intenders at each stage of the undergraduate experience and to describe how they had changed from the previous year. Panel studies of this kind are difficult to execute yet having individual level data on the nature of how law school plans change among undergraduates over time would be incredibly valuable. Only with such data would it be possible to develop informed intervention programs to increase the size and diversity of the potential law school applicant pool. This project was an attempt to examine whether the Internet could facilitate such a process.
