APPLYING TO LAW SCHOOL HAS A LOT OF MOVING PARTS
You have to create an account with the Law School Admissions Council (LSAC), do research and figure out which schools you want to apply to, prepare for and take the LSAT, submit all of your college transcripts, write a personal statement, polish your resume, get at least two letters of recommendation from your professors, then submit all your applications, and apply for financial aid. And that’s the short list of things you have to do.
Applawz helps you manage all this complexity from your phone, laptop, or tablet, keeping you organized and on track, breaking down the process into small, achievable goals.
APPLYING TO LAW SCHOOL TAKES A LOT MORE TIME THAN YOU THINK
Most annual application deadlines are in February or early March, which is when law schools typically make most of their decisions about who will be selected for the class starting in the fall. However, almost all law schools have “rolling admission,” which means they evaluate applications as they come in, so many prospective students submit their applications in November and December (the year before they want to start). Given this “application cycle,” ideally, you will start the process about 18 months before the fall you want to start law school, with your part of the process taking about a year. If you are a little late in your planning, but are really motivated, you can complete your application in about 5 to 6 months. Either way, this is a long process. Months. Many many months.
Applawz helps you plan and manage your time, create a schedule, set deadlines, and keep you on track.
APPLYING TO LAW SCHOOL CAN BE INTIMIDATING
When you apply to law school, you will have to do things you have never done before — and do them really well. For example, a major part of your application is taking the LSAT. The LSAT is like no test you have ever taken before, and your score plays a major role in determining your fate. So applying to law school is a big deal, and it can be really nerve-wracking.
Applawz was inspired by students who have gone through this process. Applawz can reduce your stress and make you smile occasionally during this adventure.
