I must admit that I am a bit indecisive and coming to the decision to go to law school took me a long time. As a result, I didn’t have the benefit of a lot of counseling or preparation. I prepared for the LSAT in 6 weeks and took it late in December and applied late in January. I was told that this was going to be a huge disadvantage because of the rolling nature of the admission process. After the mad rush that was applying to law school, all I can do now is wait, wait for acceptances (hopefully). Next I filled out the FAFSA for financial aid purposes. Another very important step for me is going to be finding scholarships on my own. I have only begun this process, but so far I have found a good site called Fastweb.com. If you are looking for scholarships this would be a good start! In conclusion, don’t procrastinate and keep you’re your hopes up!
