School - Credits to apply

Postby nickbentley » Tue Aug 03, 2010 1:47 am

Hi..

Right now I'm sitting on about 75 completed hours of school.

Is there a certain amount of credit hours needed before one can send in law school applications? I will have all of my courses completed for undergrad before day 1 of Fall 2011 (when I hope to begin Law School)

Nope, you just need to have finished your UG degree by the time you matriculate. So you should be good to go to submit applications for the 2011-2012 cycle.

No problem, I'd be glad to try and answer any more questions you may have.

Ok...

I'm looking at landing about a 165 on the LSAT with a 3.25 graduating GPA.

I recognize I'm not looking at a T14.

With T2 and T3 schools, when should I plan to have my applications submitted? I'd like to get them in early...

Thanks

First off, you're smart for planning to get your applications in early.

From what i've heard it kind of goes like this:
Before Halloween - very early
Before Thanksgiving - sufficiently early
December - "on-time"
January - late

Ideally get your applications in before Halloween to maximize your cycle, but before Thanksgiving is good enough.
