How early can I apply for Fall 2014?

Postby jebinles » Sat Feb 16, 2013 8:08 pm

Hi all, I'm new to this site/the application process. I just took the February LSAT (not for this application cycle, though) and now I wanted to start working on my application essays for the Fall of 2014. However, the application forms aren't available on LSAC yet and I was hoping to get the personal statement prompts from the various law schools to which I plan to apply. Does anyone know if the prompts usually change from year to year? Can I use the prompts for Fall 2013 and assume it will be the same for the next year?

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

There really aren't different prompts for each school and writing personalized personal statements really won't help your cycle. Just write one really good personal statement and adapt it to the length requirements of each school.

Personal Statement prompts don't change very much/often, so you can certainly get started. One PS will serve for most schools that use a generic prompt.

Applications go live in the fall.

Jeez Maverick, That is some top gunning. The apps open when the schools say so. Usually somewhere between September 1 and November 1 of the application year.
