If you’re a junior and planning to apply to law school in the fall of 2011, get started!
Between now and the fall, there are only two LSATs administered- one in June and one in October. If you didn’t take the February LSAT, it might be a good idea to prepare in time for the June test so you have a chance to raise your score in October just in case you’re not satisfied the first time around.
June 6, 2011 test- Register by May 3rd
October 1, 2011 (or October 4, 2011 for Saturday Sabbath observers)- Register by August 30th
Many of us are fantastic test-takers, and if you went to public school like I did, that skill was reinforced countless times. However, the LSAT is not the SAT, the Regents exams, or the APs- you must prepare extensively to do well.
Kaplan offers an LSAT class on campus for those prepping for the June test. The class starts on March 28th and meets Mondays and Wednesdays until May 16th. The cost of the class is $1,399.00. Click here to sign up.
There are also a variety of LSAT prep books available if you’d rather study independently or if the cost of a Kaplan class is prohibitive. A comprehensive list of beginner’s books can be found here.
For guidance regarding law school admissions, schedule an appointment with Rachel Gerrity in Career Services (located in the Admissions building). Appointments are available daily from 9 AM to 4:30 PM in 30-minute blocks. To schedule, call 860-297-2080 or email email@example.com
Best of luck to everyone!
