  • The impact of LSAT scores and Grade Point Averages (GPA) in the selection process
  • The significance of the early application process
  • Debt management and developing credit worthiness
  • Common errors committed by law school applicants

The ASAP seminar will help prospective students understand what is necessary in the law school admissions process, and them to choose the right law school for their specific needs.

To participate in the ASAP Pre-Law Program, you must have at least a 2.7 Grade Point Average and be either a senior in the fall of 2016 OR a college graduate.
