What Can I Do While I’m Waiting for My LSAT Score?

The wait for the LSAT is killing you. I know. But think of it as practice for waiting for bar exam results which takes three months, rather than this measly three weeks.

How can you use the waiting period productively?

Here’s the Top 5 Things To Do

1. Get your resume together. Even if you haven’t finished your summer internship, you can still work on everything else and get it pretty close to final.

2. Register for CAS and send your transcripts in. To see what transcripts need to be sent to LSAC , see here: “Requesting Transcripts|LSAC.”

3. Brainstorm personal statement topics. Start getting some ideas written and flush through them–think about what you’re trying to say about yourself. (See Chapter 10 of The Law School Admission Game, Second Edition.)

4. Do your research on the law school application process and make a checklist of all of the things you need to do. Assign yourself dates, moving backward from a goal application submission date of October 15th (if you took the June LSAT and aren’t planning on a retake).

5. Touch base with the folks you’re planning to ask for letters of recommendation and make sure they are available (and willing) to write letters and submit them by early September to LSAC.
