Applying to Law School

Application Timeline

 Study for the LSAT (At least 3-6 months)

Most require lots of time to practice and be ready to take the LSAT. We recommend studying at least 1-2 hours a day for 3-6 months. A competitive score will get you in to the law school you would like to attend.

  Take the LSAT in the summer before you apply

We recommend students take the June LSAT. If necessary, a student can take the September, October or December LSAT as a back up date.
