A Step-By-Step Guide to Applying to Law School

Understand the law school admissions process - You must earn an undergraduate degree from a college. 

However, you do not need to major in a specific area in order to apply to law school and eventually become a lawyer. 

Getting Into Law School + GPA Once your official transcripts have been submitted, LSAC (Law School Admissions Council) calculates your GPA by aggregating all of your coursework grades prior to receiving your bachelor’s degree. 

If you are in school currently, you will want to ensure you are getting the best grades possible. 

Make a Plan to Take The LSAT This is the hurdle most pre-laws fear the most. Almost every law school application requires you to include a score from some standardized test that the law school thinks will effectively appraise your lawyerly mettle.

Sign Up for the Credential Assembly Service - You can do this when you sign up for your LSAT. Eventually, this service — abbreviated to CAS 

will be how you distribute your grades, LSAT scores, letters of recommendation, personal statements, and everything else to all the law schools you apply to.  

Study for the LSAT Most people use some sort of study aids to prepare for the LSAT. It’s not the kind of test that most can show up and crush. 

Research Law School Of course, you’ll need to know which law schools you want apply to before you apply to them. Do your research.
