Law school admissions is both a competitive and capricious process. Very few applicants are guaranteed to get into a school of their choice, and most applicants find themselves with a realistic chance at many law schools. Therefore, it is important to apply to a wide range. As applicants start to put together their target list based on their grades and standardized test scores, they might feel daunted. While law school applications tend to have the same basic elements like a personal statement and resume, some have extra essays or other quirks that require additional thought and effort. Too many applications can be unmanageable. Moreover, application fees can quickly add up to a substantial sum.
