Studying for the LSAT / Re: Testmasters
« on: March 02, 2009, 06:29:37 PM »
I requested an information packet from Testmasters and received it a couple of weeks ago.  When I called them to register for an in-classroom class, they told me that they no longer do that.  They told me that all they do is the online class now.  Does anyone have any experience with the online class?

Law School Admissions / Re: What makes an application complete?

Thank you for that information.  That's very good to know.  I started off college with a low GPA but have been drastically pulling it up over the last two-three years.  My GPA should be a little higher by the time I graduate and I wish they had my final GPA number to go by, but maybe the school(s) will see a trend in my grades and take that into consideration.  Anyway, thank you.


Law School Admissions / What makes an application complete?
« on: February 24, 2009, 11:43:41 AM »
I am planning on applying for law school this coming fall, for Fall 2010.  However, I will not graduate from college until May 2010.  I know that several law schools I have read about state that my application should be complete by such and such a date, in order to receive the best chance of getting in.  My question is, will my application not be considered complete if I have not taken 100% of all college classes by the law school's priority deadline?  Are my chances of acceptance not as good as someone that graduated the year before?  I'm not very clear on how this works, but I do want to make sure I have all my ducks in a row.  I really would appreciate any help.  Thank you.


Nevermind, I misread your post.  Planning on taking the LSAT in June anyway.  That should work out ok.  Thanks again.

Thanks for the info.  That's very good to know.  I'm just starting to seriously look into the whole application process, so I was a little unclear on that.  I'm still trying to learn about this whole process.  So I assume that since most of the law school's application deadlines are in March, I will definitely have to take the LSAT in February, and no later.  Is that right?  I'll have to check the LSAT registration deadlines.  Thank you for your help.

Stetson University does, but I think this will be their last year of doing it.

This is my first post to this site, although I've been reading from it for a long time now.  I'm hoping I may can get some info from some of you.  Anyway, I will graduate next Spring (2010), in May.  My question is, will that be too late to apply to most law schools if I wish to start school in Fall (2010)?  I've done a little research on the schools in the southeast and it seems that most of their application deadlines are in March, however, I would not have graduated by then.  I know some accept early admissions, but it seems like there are very few.  I just don't want to wait for over one year before starting law school.

To give you an idea of what schools I may apply for, I will have about a 3.2 GPA when I graduate.  I am taking an LSAT prep class, but have not taken the actual test yet.  I really would appreciate any advice some of you could give me as to how I could start school somewhere in the fall, after graduation.  Thank you for your help.
