Applying to Law School with 87 credits

Postby itachiuchiha » Thu Dec 06, 2012 10:53 pm

Is it okay?

Also, is LSAC CAS required? Should I purchase before taking LSAT?

thanks

It's fine, and CAS is required for all law schools.

You don't have to purchase before the LSAT but I would wait until right before you apply. I think that payment for CAS is only good for a year, so if you still need 35 or 40 hours to graduate, I would wait.

are you sure about the 1 year thing? I've read that it was 5 years.

No I'm not sure. I just thought I read it somewhere but could be wrong. I know the LSAT score is good for 5 years.

Yes, you are correct. 5 years. I just checked the LSAC site.
