Admissions Advice

Choosing Law as a Career

Law school is a serious academic, financial, and personal commitment and should be approached with confidence and 100%+ effort. Although returning students who have been in the workforce for a few years may face lifestyle changes, as professionals they have matured and developed skills which are likely to be helpful in law school (e.g. time management and career navigation). Think this decision through thoroughly and be prepared to be fully engaged.


Preparing for Law School as an Undergraduate

  • LSAC: Create your Law School application account. Register with LSAC’s Credential Assembly Service (CAS). Applications, transcripts and recommendation letters are submitted to and assembled by CAS.
  • Important dates to consider
  • Work on your personal statement and finalize your recommendations.
  • Apply Early - Submit your application by Thanksgiving or early December of your senior year to avoid getting caught up in the holiday delays.
  • Complete FAFSA before the submission deadline. Make sure your financial record is clean by getting a free credit check.
