When to Apply to be Eligible for Scholarships

Postby iwanta170 » Sun Jun 27, 2010 8:09 pm

If I take the October LSAT and apply to law schools right after I get my score around November 1, will it still be early enough to get scholarship offers from law schools? Are my chances any worse than if I had taken just the June test?

Thanks in advance

I applied mid December and received several substantial scholarships, but I should have applied sooner.

I've read on TLS that a lot of schools don't even begin rolling out the dough until after March 1 after they have already sent a good majority of their acceptances. So it seems as long as you have been admitted by then you should be in the running. Of course, I've also heard that applying early will help strengthen your chances of getting-in in the first place.
