Why You Should Be Meeting With Your Pre-Law Advisor

Deciding to go to law school is a big decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. The application process alone can be complicated and overwhelming, but it doesn’t always have to be.

If you’re an undergraduate student, you could be neglecting the one pre-law resource you’re already paying for: pre-law advisors.

Pre-law advisors are there to help you navigate the winding road to law school. Here are three reasons why you should be meeting with them before starting 1L.

They Push You in the Right Direction

If you know that you want to attend law school as an undergrad student, we recommend meeting with your advisor ASAP to get ahead of the competition (aka your classmates).

Law school is competitive, even as an undergrad student, and meeting with your pre-law advisor can give you the push you need to appeal to a specific law school. Your advisor can help you with everything from choosing a major to optimizing your schedule for success.

Pre-law advisors also have access to information that no other students, faculty, or even the internet gets access to. That includes data that can help you compare your GPA and LSAT scores to previous applicants at specific schools to see how you compete.

They Demystify the Application Process

Meeting with your pre-law advisor before you start your applying to law school can save you a lot of time in the long run. Applying to law school can get complicated, and pre-law advisors are there to make sense of it all.

Wondering how to request the perfect letter of recommendation? Or how to write a killer personal statement? Your advisor can help you with all of that and more, including any LSAT questions you may have, and when to start the application process.

They Set You Up for Success in Law School

Meeting with a pre-law advisor will give you a realistic view of what it’s like to be a law student. If you’re on the fence, your advisor can help you decide if law school is the right fit for you and your future.

Pre-law advisors are equipped with tons of knowledge and resources to help you get into law school and succeed a law student. They can even help you find law school scholarships and navigate the financial aid process before you start.
