This week’s podcast discusses the concept of early decision with law school applications. Some schools offer applicants the option to “apply early” to schools, which can be beneficial to students seeking entrance to a particular school. Early decision applicants often have an earlier deadline for their application, and will obtain their admissions decision sooner. This allows applicants to know far in advance if they have been admitted to the school of their choice. However, most early decisions are also binding, which require the student to attend the program they were admitted to, and to withdraw all applications with other schools.
This week’s podcast discusses law students that fall under the category of the underrepresented minority, or URM. LSAC states that only 1 out of every 25 lawyers is African American, Latino, Asian American or Native American. LSAC also states, as per the statistics available on their site, that in the 2008 school year only 25% of law school students were recognized minorities.
This week’s podcast will tackle the tricky field of last-minute LSAT prep. With less than a week until the June LSAT administration, our experts provide valuable insights for students to consider as they make their final preparations for this exam, as well as other upcoming LSAT test dates.
This week marks the start of our Featured Law School podcast series. On the last Wednesday of every month we will take some time to learn more about each of the many law schools around the country through our Featured Law School podcasts. In these podcasts we will speak to one school administrator and one current student, who will each give us a first-hand account of their school and programs. Each administrator and student will be asked the same questions in order to give you, the listener, a comparable view of all the programs we will feature.
