If law school is the next step in your life then there are many things to consider before you apply. I recently chatted with Constance St. Germain-Driscoll, Program Director of Criminal Justice and Legal Studies at AMU, about some important things to keep in mind when law school applications are on the horizon.
5 Things to Know About Getting Into Law School:
- Grades are important, but not that important
- The real significance of LSAT scores
- Your personal essay is the clincher
- Be realistic in choosing your law school(s)
- Understand the debt you will be incurring in student loans
Along with this list she notes that law schools are looking for well-rounded people, so extracurricular activities are a plus, and a single bad semester shouldn’t be fatal. If you want to hear the nitty-gritty on the process of getting into law school, listen to the podcast below for more wisdom from St. Germain-Driscoll.
