Transfer Questions

Postby Anonymous User » Wed Jan 21, 2015 8:31 pm

2 absolute Newb Questions:

1) When should I start getting LOR and Letter from dean, good standing from undergrads?
2)Do you have to re-sign up w/ LSAC or can you use the one you used to apply initially?

THANKS

1)
LOR - as soon as you can get quality ones, get them
dean cert from law school - after spring grades (doesn't take long)
UG dean certs - i'd do this asap, getting mine slowed me down

2) use the account you used originally

I would do the UG cert now. No reason to wait. You can ask for LORs now if you have professors in mind. If not, it's OK to schmooze now and wait until the end of the semester.

You'll have to wait for your dean's certificate until after second semester grades come out.
