Thank you all for coming to the Thinking About Law? Tools and Resources workshop last week. We have posted the slides from the workshop on the website here. They cover the major steps you need to take to apply to law school, starting with
  1. setting up your LSAC account, and setting aside 6 months to prepare for the LSAT test, to
  2. figuring out your projected debt-to-income ratio for each law school, and using this to generate your list of law schools, and
  3. learning how to finance your law school education so you are best positioned when you graduate.
This is an involved process with lots of steps. You should get in touch with me or a pre-law advisor for guidance through the process. 

To all of our alumni applying to law school, welcome! Please get in touch with us. We are here to guide you through the application process and to help you with your decisions.
