    Hack Law School Requirements & Get Into Law School You already know what the basic law school requirements are for admissions (at least at most schools; online law schools and unaccredited law schools are their own beasts entirely): (1) undergraduate GPA, (2) LSAT, (3) law school personal statement, (4) recommendations; (5) some other miscellaneous, pointless papers about your work . Getting into Law School. There is no single course of study required for admission into law school. Law schools accept applications from virtually all majors and every discipline. Law schools look for applicants with specific courses such as political science, philosophy, sociology, and history.

    These events allow you to meet reps of more than law schools in one place and to attend workshops on the LSAT, the admission process, financing law school, and diversity in law school. Visit a law school: Call the admission office and ask for a tour. Visit the school’s website, sit . Getting into law school is no easy task, and getting into a top law school is an even tougher one. Develop a strategic approach and attack the application process full-force. Most law schools employ a Rolling Admissions process that heavily favors those people .

    The primary admissions test for getting into a US law school is the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). It is a half-day test comprised of multiple choice questions and is available four times a year across the US at various testing centers. There are even some centers outside the US for interested international students. Want to know your chances of getting into law school? Just choose your LSAT score and GPA and you'll find out your chances of being accepted! We use advanced probability and statistics to calculate your chances of getting in, but remember this is just an estimate!
