This actually happened last weekend at UVA ASW. Granted, it was at a bowling alley, but still.

I am a law school applicant this year, and I am 20-years-old. I'll be 21 by the time law school starts, but I'll still be 20 when ASWs/ASDs happen. What will these experiences be like for me? I've heard that there's a lot of alcohol at most of the events, so I'm afraid it might be awkward. I imagine I could pretty easily just not go to events at actual bars (or take along my "novelty"), but they're not going to single me out as someone not to serve at catered, open bar type events right? Has anyone gone through this?
Thanks in advance!
Just don't get wasted perpetually. I have seen that go really south for people -- 21 + or not
I was at a local law school (big state school, midwest) for business this afternoon, and it was their ASW; got on the elevator with some guy who was literally steadying himself with both hands flat against the wall as though he was undergoing a pat-down and couldn't decide whether to throw up on his shoes or not; he smelled so bad that I had to bail to a random floor. All I could think was, "his entire 1L year, he's gonna be that guy."
ETA: This was at noon.

I shit you not, he was sitting on my floor and pissed his pants. Don't ever be that guy. Unsurprisingly this individual chose to attend another school.
That's too funny! Did he remember what happened after he woke up?

It is entirely possible someone from the admissions staff will recognize you, specifically for your age, without you realizing. I had a weird app, and two members of the admissions staff knew my name when I met them at ASW, no nametag. If they see you putting the school's reputation at risk (Headline: Princeton Law gets underage applicants hammered at mixer!) and making such an objectively dumb decision, they may decide they were wrong in thinking you were mature for your age and ready for law school when they admitted you. If I saw this as an adcom, I'd pull your offer. Not because drinking a few months before your 21st is a mortal sin, but because you lack the judgment and professionalism to pass up a beer when it so obviously a bad idea. Just my 2 cents.
