Here is the benefit of being on top of things and applying early –
While most of my clients are only now getting underway in the law school application process (and many more won’t be doing so until after the December LSAT), I heard good news this week from three proactive people who worked on their applications during the summer and submitted them in August/September:
One was admitted to American – Washington College of Law
One was admitted to Baltimore (with a 25th percentile LSAT score for that school)
And one of my transfer applicants was admitted to Georgetown.
Congratulations to all 3 of you and I look forward to posting lots more good news in the coming weeks and months.
For those of you planning to apply for Fall 2009 admission, try to get your ducks in a row early. By starting in the next 6-8 months, you are at a big advantage in the process. (Just the relief of knowing you’ve gotten in somewhere is priceless.)
However, for those of you just starting now for Fall 2008 admission, don’t be disheartened. It’s not impossible, or even necessarily an uphill battle. It’s not over until it’s over!
