Extra Curricular Information

*Community Service

My advice to future applicants:

1) If you can afford a prep class, take one

2) Take lots of practice exams, its important to keep track of how you are scoring and to simulate the test conditions as much as possible.

3) Try to get as close to a 160+ as possible. If you do, there will be lots of scholarship opportunities.

4) Don't underestimate the value of a good personal and diversity statement.

5) Apply as early as possible, especially if you have a low LSAT score!!

**More advise to come!!

ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES
