June LSAT and schools with August application deadline

Postby xinglei » Wed Mar 07, 2012 9:48 pm

I saw a number of schools with an August application deadline, will these schools accept the June LSAT score for this year's admission?

Suppose I get a 160 LSAT in June (GPA 3.1), do I stand a chance of getting accepted in their last cycle?

Schools that I am considering to apply:
Brooklyn Law school
Drexel University

Any other suggestions?

A good rule of thumb: don't apply to schools that have an August deadline.

I got emails from a number of schools when I sat the June LSAT last year, all claiming they would still accept my application to begin that fall. These schools included:

St Thomas
Cooley
Ave Maria
Florida Coastal
Phoenix
Elon

These schools are all third or fourth tier.

If Brooklyn and Drexel would accept you this cycle, they would likely accept you next cycle with scholarship money. They will probably have given out most or all of their scholarship money for this cycle by June. You shouldn't go to those schools without scholarship money.

If you are still in college, wait and get a year's work experience. Even a year working hard at a job will help a little when you apply to law schools, and will help more when you are looking for legal jobs.

I'm sure a school that allows applicants to apply, accept, and enroll/begin classes within the same month will be awesome 8) 8) 8) 8) 8) !!!!
