Summer’s just around the corner, which, for the prelaw, means that you have plenty of time to beef up your law school application. If you’re taking the LSAT, you’ll be spending some time studying for the LSAT, though not all your time studying for the LSAT (despite what you may have been led to believe, vitamin D insufficiency does not automatically add ten points to your LSAT score). And if you’ve already taken the LSAT, you need to figure out what to do for the summer. Should you get a part-time gig at a law office, or should you do something unrelated to the law, so you can show admissions offices that you have outside interests?
For the most part, law school admissions is based on three components: your GPA, your LSAT score, and the “character and individuality” factor.
