Does the University of Chicago Law School accept December LSAT scores?
The University of Chicago does accept December LSAT scores. However, taking the LSAT in December will probably put you at a disadvantage in the admissions process at University of Chicago and almost all other top law schools.
The University of Chicago has a rolling admissions process, and by the time you receive your December LSAT score, the University of Chicago will have already begun accepting earlier applicants. Therefore, it is advisable to take the LSAT before December if at all possible.
However, if you must take the December LSAT, then you need to submit the rest of your application materials in advance in order to maximize your chances of admission to the University of Chicago Law School.
According to UChicago:
“Because of our rolling admissions process, the June or October test date puts you in the best position for getting your application in early. However, if you are only able to take the December LSAT, we advise you to submit all other required application materials so that the LSAT will be the final component of your application.
Please note that if you have already taken the LSAT and are registered to take the LSAT again in December, your file will be considered incomplete and will not be reviewed by the Admissions Committee until after we have received your December LSAT score. If you would like for the Admissions Office to complete your file prior to receiving your December LSAT score, you must let the Admissions Office know at email@example.com or (773) 702-9484. If you request to have your application completed before the December test scores are released, it is possible that the Admissions Committee will consider your application and issue a decision before reviewing your December LSAT score.”
