Applying to Law School

Each law school has its own admissions procedures. Data on admission criteria for any specific law school can be obtained from several sources. The Law School Admission Council (LSAC) posts an electronic guide to American Bar Association (ABA) approved law schools on the LSAC Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools webpage. This guide provides information on a wide array of topics including, but not limited to, the campus facilities, the student body composition, financial aid eligibility, and an applicant profile that helps students to determine their likelihood of acceptance based on GPA and Law School Admission Test (LSAT) scores. This website will also allow you to enter your GPA and LSAT score so you can see your likelihood of admission across a wide array of law schools.

In addition, students with an interest in law school can obtain basic information about programs, including statistics on the student body composition, the acceptance rate, bar passage rates, tuition costs, and post law-school employment information at the Law School Numbers website. Finally, students can obtain more information about their particular schools of interest by locating the specific website of the program and contacting an admissions representative to set up a campus tour.
