Is it looked down upon to handwrite applications
« on: September 16, 2008, 02:29:49 PM »
I am more comfortable handwritting applications and submitting everything together than doing via LSAC. I can't find any information as to whether this is seen as a negative or not, or whether law schools prefer that applications are submitted via lsac. Anyone have any ideas?

Most schools say on their website specifically that they prefer apps from LSAC.  All information is easily entered in their system, and it's how most people do it.  I handwriting is acceptable, it's just not their preferred method.  (with the exception of Fordham, which is making me do a paper app because my fee waiver can't be processed online)
