Most law schools require that you register for the Credential Assembly Service. The CAS prepares and provides a report for each law school to which you apply.
You need not register for the CAS at the same time you register for the LSAT. It is recommended you register for CAS approximately six weeks before you plan to apply to law school. Your CAS period will extend for five years from your registration date. If you register for a LSAT at anytime during your CAS period, the CAS period will be extended five years from your latest LSAT registration.
CAS Fee Waivers are available at http://www.lsac.org/jd/apply/cas-fee-waivers.asp
Pre-Law Advisor Release
When you register for the LSAT online at www.lsac.org, PLEASE consider authorizing the release of your LSAT score to your UM prelaw advisor. This information assists in following admission trends to share with other UM students.
It's as easy as 1-2-3-4. When you register for the LSAT:
- select a date,
- type in a zip code to locate test sites in your area
- select a test center in your area and
- AUTHORIZE THE RELEASE OF YOUR LSAT SCORE TO YOUR PRELAW ADVISOR.
In step four of the LSAT registration process, you will see... "We encourage you to aid prelaw advisors by releasing to them your LSAT score(s) and certain biographical, application, and academic information. This information will enable your prelaw advisor to improve services to you and to all of the students and graduates of your college. This might also enable your advisor to notify you of scholarship opportunities and other pertinent information. All information will be held in strict confidence." "Check this box if you wish to release information to the prelaw advisor at your undergraduate degree school." Please check the box!
Your support would be greatly appreciated.
