You Can Still Attend Law School This Fall!

If you are interested in taking the LSAT in June and want to attend law school this fall, here are some steps to maximize your ability to get accepted and start your path to a JD degree. The June LSAT is the final LSAT that can be used for enrolling in law school in Fall 2017. Willamette Law will accept test scores from this date. Note: this can also count for applying in Fall 2018.

Here are some steps to help you get ready for law school:
Take a sample LSAT test to gauge how much time you’ll need to study.  We can mail you one if needed. If you are happy with your score, plan on studying for about six weeks.
Study for the LSAT.  There are a lot of free resources available! Online there are plenty of tutorials about how to attack a certain section of the LSAT and have a strategy to find the best answer. There are also library books to rent and books online to purchase as guides. While paying to take a prep course can help, they are not mandated.
Take a practice LSAT at Willamette University College of Law on Saturday, June 3, 2017. There is no fee to take the test, and only you will see your practice score. RSVP online.
Keep studying for the LSAT.
Take the LSAT  (June 12, 2017 is the last chance for Fall 2017, otherwise it can also count for Fall 2018).
After you have taken the LSAT, work on and submit your application, even though you’re waiting on your LSAT score. There is no fee to apply at Willamette. You can submit the other pieces of your application while you wait for the LSAT results.
Your LSAT score will be available around the 4th of July. Once received, let us know so that we can review your file. Willamette is committed to reviewing your application within 48 hours of its completion.
Assuming you’re admitted, pay your deposit and get ready to move to Salem. If you have questions about life and housing in Salem, ask our Director of Housing, Suzanne for help! Email her at srjohnson@willamette.edu.
Attend our free Introduction to Law summer program (August 7—11). Law School Orientation begins on Wednesday, August 16, and classes begin on Monday, August 21. Mandatory orientation for international students begins on Friday, August 11.
We want to help. Let us know how we can assist you in your path to attending law school.
