Decide if you are going to take the LSAT or GRE December 1-31

Every ABA accredited law school accepts the LSAT and more and more accept the GRE. A strong LSAT score is valuable to law schools because that is what they report to USNews and other ranking programs. If you are planning to only take the GRE, then you can mark the next couple steps as complete becasue they are LSAT specific.

Take a diagnostic LSAT December 1-31

A diagnostic LSAT is the best place to start. Your score on the diagnostic is not very important. What really matters is how comfortable you feel with each section so that you can decide if you want to use a prep course, a 1-on-1 tutor, or study on your own. You can find a free diagnositic on Khan academy. This is also a good time to make an account on LSAC.org because you will be using that site a lot. Making an account is free but there are fees you will have to pay too LSAC to do much else.

Decide which LSAT(s) you are going to take December 1-31

This is the first point where you can actually plan out the next weeks/months/years. In the whole process, you have the least control over the LSAT dates, so they are good thing to use to plan everything else.

Apply for a LSAC fee waiver January 1-31

Not everyone is eligible for an LSAC fee waiver, but this is an important step. If the ~$1500 dollars it costs to apply to law school is going to be a financial burden then we recommend applying for a fee waiver. You might not get it, but it can't hurt to try. The LSAC will not issue any refunds if you are approved for a waiver after you pay for something, so apply for a waiver early.

Make a plan to study for the LSAT January 1-31

Everyone's schedule will be slightly different based on how you are going to prepare (self, course, or tutor) but the important thing is making a plan

Register for the LSAT(s) that you plan to take January 1-31

You can register for the LSAT about a year out and the deadline is typically one month in advance of the test.

Ok so are all the unnamed WashU scholarships just called “Scholar in Law”? The letter says “one of the most prestigious scholarship awards,” but it seems like that’s what they call their general scholarship program that awards 90% of students.
@Pookie52: two years of retroactive withdrawals and 2ish years of UG gap after that

crypto scam
Most schools are generous with aid and you can usually get 25-50% off
grad plus loans
Then you have to take significant loans
Or get a full ride
@slaughter: test well, negotiate well, be debt-averse in your decision-making
17:59
It’s not that hard lmao just have a 177+/4.0 and some school will offer u a full ride
18:00
But yeah what everyone else suggested works too especially crypto scam and rich parents
Rich parents is the meta

I think there are studies that paying for education, specifically advanced education, and giving your child money for their first home downpayment are the biggest propellants towards wealth a parent can give their kid

Once a family has achieved enough wealth to do the above 2, then future generations almost certainly will also have the ability. That's how generational wealth remains. Debt is a wealth killer
Absolutely, valuable insight

Any real reason to consider USC over UCLA for BL?
Pookie52
19:14
UCLA is even a bit cheaper but I'm just curious if there's anyone reason to consider it
UCLA is categorically better
Pookie52
19:15
thats what im thinking
19:40
The only reason ppl go to usc over ucla is cuz the former is more generous with aid
19:40
UCLA is better in almost every single aspect especially location

I think this site used to have a calculator for estimating total paid including interest for loans. Does anyone know how to find it?
