Deciding Where To Apply For Law School:

  • Consult the ABA-LSAC Official Guide to ABA-Approved Law Schools (copy available in the pre-law advisor's office, or online at http://www.LSAC.org) To determine where you have a realistic chance of being admitted, consult the grids based on LSAT and GPA.
  • Attend the Law School Caravan at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, or the LSAC Law School Forum in Chicago and meet with law school admissions representatives and learn about what their universities have to offer. The 2008 U of I Caravan will take place on Wednesday, October 8 from 11-3 in the Illini Union.
  • Think about the region of the country where you would prefer to practice law.
  • Arrange to visit the law schools that interest you the most; attend some classes, talk with students and professors. The Pre-Law Society takes some group trips to regional law schools.
