Recommended Posts

If I wanted to apply for law school and start September 2020, what is the lastest I could write my LSAT and when are law school applications normally due by?

Cheers!

Depends a lot on where you want to study. I only know about Ontario so here’s info on that region:

You would apply to all Ontario schools through OLSAS, a centralized application portal that gathers materials and sends them to the schools. Applications are normally due within the first days of November, the year before you apply. So, November 2019 if you want to start in 2020. Applications will open in late August each year, but you can search the net for last year’s info, which should be very accurate. 

There used to be only 3 LSAT dates per year- June, September/October, and January. On your OLSAS application, you must indicate which tests you have already written, and which you intend to write. Many schools would accept any test date, but might put off evaluating your file if you intended to re-write. Some would not look at the January score. It is my understanding that there are many more test dates now. You’d have to check each schools website, but I’d say the general rule applies- for admittance during the 2019-2 cycle, you’d have to write the test before February 2020.

Deadlines depend on the school. Although people sometimes try to make centralized lists, they can come out of date in a single year. You can currently check the data for this cycle for school admissions, but they might change by next year. Typically the application deadline ranges from early November to February, with some potential for outliers.

 

For example, UAlberta would (currently) accept an LSAT of Jan 2020, and an application by Nov 1st 2019 (https://www.ualberta.ca/law/programs/juris-doctor/admissions/regular-applicants).  Windsor require a December LSAT and Nov 1st application (http://www.uwindsor.ca/law/1163/windsor-law-admissions-faq) unless you are applying for the dual JD. Dalhousie have until Feb 28th (https://www.dal.ca/faculty/law/programs/jd-admissions/admission-requirements.html) for application, and take January LSAT. 

 

You need to decide what schools you're interested in, and look at their websites.
