Electronic (LSAC) vs. Paper Application?

Postby SteveIP » Sun Oct 03, 2010 1:40 pm

I am just starting this application process. I see that with most schools, you can apply either via the LSAC web site, or send in the paper application. For various reasons I think I prefer paper, but I want to check: Are there any specific advantages or disadvantages to either approach? Do the law schools have a preference as to which they receive?

If you apply via the LSAC site, how do you send in your essays? Are those separately anyway, by snail-mail, to each school? Or do you scan them and upload them to the LSAC site?

For the site, it is very easy to upload essays to the LSAC site directly.

Schools as a whole prefer the online apps just for the sake of ease, but I really doubt any admission committee will consider a paper application any differently in review than an online one.

Just do it online. It saves a TON of time and hassle as a good deal of the applications are filled in automatically, and this will make things a lot easier on your end.
