Prepare for Law School
Each law school has its own list of admissions requirements. But generally, one important component of many law school applications is your LSAT score. The range for LSAT scores is 120-180. According to Kaplan, one of the country’s leading test prep organizations, the average LSAT score is 151.
How you study for the LSAT and how long it takes you to do so is entirely dependent on you, but those who’ve gone through the process as well as test prep experts have some recommendations. Kaplan for example, argues that you’ll need at least three months of focused studying, though there are people who start preparing about a year in advance. You may have a competitive edge if your LSAT and GPA meet or exceed the median for each law school you apply to. If you’re worried about taking the LSAT, you can explore the numerous online resources that cover what you can expect and provide detailed prep tips, such as our LSAT study guide for aspiring law students.
Remember, your scores are not the only factor considered by admissions committees. Another element of the application is the letter of recommendation. Typically, a law school will ask for at least two letters of recommendation. Most applicants will ask professors or employers to draft the letters. Make time to cultivate meaningful relationships with potential recommenders.
