APPLYING TO LAW SCHOOL – FAQs
THE APPLICATION PROCESS
How do I know what school to apply to?
I know that choosing a school is confusing. I recommend my clients use the “Rule of 3” .
- Choose a few schools that based on your numbers, and the range the schools usually accept, you are a long shot to be accepted.
- Choose a few schools that based on your numbers, and the range that the schools usually accept, you are likely to be accepted.
- Choose a few schools that based on your numbers, and the range that the schools usually accept, you are virtually guaranteed acceptance.
I’ve had clients end up accepting a less stellar school over a top tier one because the scholarships and other incentives were much greater.
Most important is that you give yourself options.
How many schools should I apply to?
Apply to as many schools as you possibly can. You want to give yourself as many options to consider as possible.
How important is my LSAT score really?
Very! Admissions committees strongly consider and are influenced by your LSAT score, it impacts how they view other portions of your application like your Resume and Personal Statement. While all admissions committees strive to be fair and not limit acceptance to any one item in the application, an LSAT score in the 160s will make a positive impression for you and your application.
