Application Deadlines for ABA-Approved Law Schools
« on: December 31, 2009, 09:07:47 AM »
Because they are swiftly approaching, it's a good idea to be familiar with the application deadlines for the schools to which you're applying. Below, I've compiled the application deadlines for entry in the fall of 2010. This information was compiled using U.S. News and World Report, as well as certain law schools' websites, so it should be accurate. However, always make sure to double-check these deadlines both with the schools in question and LSDAS, to ensure that you're in keeping with their information. These deadlines are always subject to change.

Schools are separated by deadline month, and then sorted alphabetically. The top twenty U.S. News-ranked schools are marked in red.

Funny you should mention that. When I originally made the post (waaaay back in the day :)), I got the deadlines off U.S. News' website. They had (and I believe, still do have), the dates flipped around for Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge (Hebert) and Mississippi College. Louisiana State's deadline is 3/1 (NOT 1/3), and Mississippi's deadline is 6/1 (NOT 1/6).

U.S. News, go figure. Who needs proofers when you can just up deadlines by months and freak everyone out?  :P

As for the University of Florida, they take December LSAT scores. February LSAT scores, though, they will only consider for "secondary pool" applicants (which is a fancy way of saying "we'll consider you, but there's many more people vying for a much smaller number of spots); the University of Washington, they also take the December LSAT. They don't expressly state that they don't take February scores, but they do say that "February LSAT scores come in after a majority of decisions have been made and may decrease your chance of acceptance."

oh ok. That makes more sense. I was suprised, seeing all the top schools with later deadlines, and then those other schools with deadlines way early in January, I thought something didn't look right.  :P
