How much did you spend applying to law school?

Postby Paul Campos » Thu Aug 30, 2012 4:03 pm

Or alternatively how much do you anticipate spending if you're in the process of applying?

Costs would include:

LSAT prep
LSAT itself
LSAC report and application fee (if not waived) per school
School visits

Anything else?

Please PM me if you don't want to post the figure.

Thanks in advance.

Also like the 250 bucks for the Candidate Referral System.

600 LSAT prep course
300 Other lsat drilling material
200? for the LSAT (I really don't recall how much the actual test cost)
250 for CRS
500 in expected application fees (with an expected 700ish in waivers)


I'm thinking I'll come in at around 1800 or so- but that is with a huge amount of fee waivers. That doesn't include yet any trips to accepted student weekends- so could go up quite a lot.

Around ~$2000 for the categories you brought up and I can't think of any glaring omissions. The plurality of that is LSAT related but I did visit a couple of schools and paid the $50-100 app fees to 3 I believe and that added up (the rest were waived).

0 on prep, $100 LSAT (took it twice but fee waiver only good for one), $264 in report fees for 22 schools. Didn't visit anywhere
