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!
I just received my score for the June 2009 LSAT. 150… i have a 3.2 GPA from the University of Michigan and graduated in 2004. i previously took the LSAT in June 2004 with a score of 148. Is it in my best interest to apply early to Loyola Law School in Los Angeles for their part time program?
I can’t answer specific school questions on the blog; I need to know a lot more about my clients before I give that level of advice, but I can tell you I haven’t seen anyone get into Loyola with a 150 in a very, very long time….. Plus, part time programs are no longer safe havens or back doors for low LSAT takers now that US News looks at the entering credentials of part time students.
