Law School Application

Law schools will usually consider all parts of a candidate’s application; no one factor should determine whether or not a student is admitted. Law schools are explicitly discouraged from using cut-off LSAT scores below which no applicant will be considered. 

That being said, in most cases the applicant’s academic record and LSAT scores are the most important factors. A weakness in one or both of these areas must be overcome with strengths in other areas of the application to be accepted into law school.
