Re: Confused about the "Law School Reports" section of apps

Postby rinkrat19 » Tue Feb 04, 2014 12:38 am

It's heartening to see that you've really researched this application process well and have gathered all the relevant elements well before the deadlines. :? Just so you know, you are really late in the cycle at this point and should probably just wait a year. (Common wisdom is that it's ideal to get apps in by Thanksgiving, and by Christmas is ok.)

You pay for CAS. CAS is like this big clearinghouse through which all your applications are assembled and submitted by LSAC. You have your school(s) send in your transcripts and CAS generates your academic report. You upload files for things like your resume, personal statements, addenda, and diversity statements. You have your letter of recommendation writers send in their letters. You fill out each school's application on LSAC. Then you assign the relevant documents to each application. When you have all the required bits gathered for a school, CAS will show that the application is complete and can be submitted. You pay the individual application fee at that time, and CAS sends the application package to the school.
If a school only requires one letter, CAS will allow you to submit it with one letter. If a school requires 2+, you are SOL until you get another letter.
