The application fees to get into law school are really expensive.  I have already applied to about 3 law schools, but initially planned on applying to about 10. I can't afford to apply to all of them due to the cost of the application fee to major law schools. Does anyone know if these application fees are tax deductible? 

I don't think they are.

I don't believe that they are. The only "educational" expenses that I've ever seen being tax deductible are loan payments and interest. It may be worth a phone call to your accountant or H&R Block, though.

What I would recommend is that you look into application fee waivers. A lot of schools have them. Just go to each school's website and search for "fee waiver"--that should pop up any information they've got it about. And, if you don't find anything, don't despair--find the number for the admissions office and give them a call. Many schools won't advertise their waivers, but will tell you what you need to do to get one if you call.

Good luck!
