Applying to Law School


Unlike applications to college, law school applications across the nation do not open on a specific designated date. Some schools start accepting applications in August, others open applications in September or October. Applying early in the cycle is always preferable.

Because the LSAT is integral to the law school application process, if you are considering attending law school in the fall following graduation, you should start your preparation for the LSAT no later than spring of your junior year. The method of preparation you select will depend upon your unique personal circumstances, but you should not take the test without adequate preparation using either LSAC materials or reputable test preparation companies. Expect to devote no less than eight weeks to prepare.
