Why Apply Now?

AAWL members gather for the organization's annual luncheon.

Now is a great time to come to law school!

First, there’s a shortage of students. While that may sound a little self-serving for us, it’s actually a benefit for you. Schools are competing for good students, and you have a better chance of getting in to the school of your choice.  (And we hope it’s us.)

Second, class sizes are smaller. With fewer students come smaller classes. Smaller classes mean more chances to participate in programs and more individual attention from professors. You learn more and have more opportunities to participate in programs that will prepare you for law practice.

Third, there won’t always be a shortage of law students. The market is improving and changing every day. Going to law school now means being prepared to take advantage of the need for legal services. Waiting until there’s no longer a shortage may close that window of opportunity.
