1. Bachelor Degree. To get into an ABA law school, you must have a 4 year Bachelor Degree by the time you would start law school. This degree really should come from a traditional, accredited college or university with actual in-person classes.
2. Decent Grades. Your grades during college matter. A lot. You can major in pretty much anything. The key is picking something challenging and doing well in it.
3. LSAC Credential Assembly Service Report. There is an organization that governs the LSAT/law school application process called LSAC. They compute your GPA and take into account all of your college credits until you receive your Bachelor Degree, even if you transferred from another school and the school you graduated from doesn’t count those grades in your GPA.
4. Law School Admissions Test. You will have to take the LSAT. Sorry. And you can’t just show up and take it any old time, either. It’s only given 4 times a year, which means you need to plan in advance when you will take it.
5. Time To Study For The LSAT. You also need to study for it. Plan to prepare at least 3 months for the test. It’s not a knowledge-based test; it’s an aptitude test.
6. Time To Dedicate To Applications. Law school applications are time consuming: you’ll be researching schools. You’ll be writing law school personal statements, maybe optional essays and diversity statements, resumes, asking people for letters of recommendation….
7. Confidence That Law School Is Right For You. While you’re deciding whether all of this is worth it, spend time and energy exploring whether law school is the right next step for you.

1. Let's start by talking about the total application pool. The 2018-2019 cycle ended with a total of 62,543 applicants. That was a growth of about 3.25% from the prior year, and represented legal education's best year since the 2011-2012 cycle. However, overall matriculants to law school in Fall 2019 were actually down very slightly, by about a quarter of a percent. Applicant volume has recovered significantly since the depths of the financial crisis bottoming out. Since the 2014-2015 cycle, there has been an increase of about 9,000 applicants, an almost 17% growth in the applicant pool. Despite this growth, the matriculant population has barely changed. In Fall 2019 there were only about 1,200 more first year law students than the nadir in 2014-2015, an increase of about 3.3%. Growth in student population simply has not tracked growth in applicant volume.
