Ok, I know this asking for a lot, but I sort of decided last minute to apply to law school this year. I am not entirely sure I understand how this process works and I could really use some advice because most of the FAQ sections on law school website aren't very specific.
I know there's a common application over at the LSAC website and I went ahead and registered to use that service. I took the LSAT in Oct. 03, so I've got my score. I have requested letters of rec from professors and should have 3 of them mailed in within the next 2 weeks. I have written a personal statement as well, and I am in the editing process for that.
My question is, how does this all work? Are there separate applications for each school with different essays... and my personal statement is just the one common one and I still have to write several more? How do I get a transcript sent in to the LSAC website? Is there a form I need to send out for that?
What is a checklist for a completed application? How do I go about sending out applications to schools?
Sorry for all of these questions, but I need a straightforward "This Is What You Need to Do in the next month" answer. Step 1 is obviously- take a deep breath.
