If anyone can be described as Type-A, it’s law students and—by extension—pre-law students. Planning ahead is simply second nature to you. This means it’s time for all of you who want to take the LSAT and get a score that will enable you to apply early in the process to start thinking about signing up for an LSAT class. We get a flood of questions from people wondering what they should do before their LSAT class begins. Since we have a fair bit of knowledge in this arena, I’ve put together a list.
For those of you applying to law school this cycle, we are now in the later stage of the law school application period. I’m sure many of you have noticed there is one constant to this whole process — waiting. You have to wait for your LSAT score, you have to wait for your letters of recommendation, you have to wait for a school to make a decision on your application, etc. Unfortunately, even when a decision is made, your waiting isn’t necessarily over. This post is about two different ways that schools can make you wait longer: by putting you on hold or by putting you on a waitlist.
