Crunch Time: Law Schools with January Deadlines

    It's that time of the year: Time to put the finishing touches on personal statements. Time to fine-tune your résumé. Time to make sure your transcripts and letters of recommendation are in LSAC's Credential Assembly Service, ready to go. Application deadlines are just around the corner.

    Which schools have deadlines in January?

    The following schools have deadlines in January:

    • University of Florida (Levin) - 1/15
    • University of Washington - 1/15

    Since these deadlines are so early in the year, do these schools take the results of the December or February LSAT?

    University of Florida accepts the results of both the December (prior to the year for which you are applying) and February (of the year for which you are applying) LSAT, although they recommend that you take it in either June or October of the year prior to which you are applying. University of Washington states that "December is the latest acceptable LSAT to meet the Jan. 15 deadline. February LSAT scores come in after a majority of decisions have been made and may decrease your chance of acceptance."

    DISCLAIMER: As always, the best place to confirm these deadlines is on each school's website. Don't forget to double-check to make sure you've got the right dates on hand.
