Watch Out For Upcoming Law School Application Deadlines

Before you can apply to law school, you must know how much time is left to submit. We’ve passed the early application deadline at most law schools, but it’s far from too late to apply for a regular decision (for the most part). However, the clock to submit law school applications is ticking.

To give you an idea, here are the upcoming law school application deadlines at the top 10, mid 5 and bottom 5 law schools — based on the 2014 US News and World Report law school rankings.

Note: This is just a general outline of upcoming law school application deadlines. Make sure to double check with the law schools to which you will apply, for many of them are giving extensions and making other exceptions — especially following another drop in LSAT test-takers and the fiasco from the December LSAT.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like One Month Before the LSAT

2013 is very nearly over. That means the February LSAT is coming up fast.

The holidays might not have been the best thing for your February LSAT studies. If you’ve been warmed by the yuletide glow lately and not so much by the, uh, glow of the LSAT, that’s OK. There’s still time. It’s normal for the holidays to get in the way.

The key is to get back on your study plan now. Figure out where you are and what you need to get done, and start this weekend. All the good holiday stuff is over, anyway. The food is eaten, the presents are unwrapped, and the fruitcake is going stale. Actually, on second thought, the fruitcake might never go stale. Consider your return to LSAT studies as an early New Year’s resolution.

HLS is for Lovers…of Applying Late

Harvard is causing quite a stir this year. As announced on their garish blog, they will be accepting the February LSAT for applicants who want to begin law school this upcoming fall.

Their stated reason is the postponement of the LSAT for many test-takers due to winter storms throughout the country. And many people are saying that’s most likely the case.

However, there is another, vocal group who insists that they’re accepting later applications to make up for the decline in applicants – a decline of 11% again, continuing the recent downward trend.
