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.

University of Michigan

We suggest applying to Michigan Law School because more than 5.68% of applicants with your stats or worse have been accepted or waitlisted by Michigan Law School.

Does 5.68% seem kinda low? Maybe, but only 2% of applicants with my stats were accepted into HLS when I applied and built LSD (spoiler: I got in). Don't be afraid to dream.

LSAC or app fees too expensive? Consider applying for a fee waiver.

Michigan Law School is ranked 10 in the Above the Law rankings, which focus on schools with excellent employment outcomes.

Shoot your shot. We're cheering for you. ❤️

GMU said they could wait until the first day of class to make admissions off the waitlist. Which obviously doesn’t make sense.

I still haven’t heard from gmu either, being PT I’m pretty anxious that orientation is literally tomorrow
JDMayBJG
14:53
I wonder if they’re waiting to see if a few people don’t show up for orientation and then make decisions on the waitlist based on that

Just applied to Arizona State. Applications opened today for 2023, and I had all my stuff ready for today. They already waive their fees for everyone, plus I got a fee waiver from LSAC themselves. My chances aren't high, but I'm really proud of myself for applying.
Good luck @Datzookman!
