Application Time Line

This recommended Time Line for Fall 2018 admission assumes that you will complete and submit your applications by Thanksgiving 2017. It’s an ideal time line — meaning you started thinking about the process at least a year and a half before you intend to start law school.  As you’ll see, there a number of places where you can “catch up” to the time line, if you didn’t start thinking about things that early.
