Law School Application Timeline

So now that you know about the LSAT, the entry way into law school, I want to give you all an approximate timeline of what to do when. You may use this as a guide during the process.

If I want to attend law school in the Fall of 2017, I need to start now.

Fall 2015: Research and visit law schools

Winter 2015: Begin studying for the LSAT.

Spring 2016: Take the LSAT (February 6th or June exam)

Spring 2016: Visit law schools, if not previously done.

Summer 2016: Visit schools again, if necessary, and narrow down.

Summer 2016: Study for LSAT, if you wish to obtain a higher score on the next exam date.

Fall 2016: Begin law school applications, especially for early decision.

–          Early decision deadline: November 15th at nearly all schools

–          Regular decision deadline: February 15th at nearly all schools

Fall 2016: Take the LSAT again, if you wish to obtain a higher score (October or December exam)

Winter 2016: Await decision for early decision application, usually done by the end of December

Spring 2017: Await decision for regular decision application, usually done by the end of April

Summer 2017: Work, vacation, volunteer, intern, whatever you fancy before you start law school
