Applicants who are interested in admission to UW Law School this year but who have not yet taken the LSAT are in luck.

UW Law School announced Friday that scores from the June LSAT will be considered for admissions this fall. Applicants must turn in all other materials by April 1, 2017, the Law School’s original application deadline.

According to Dean Margaret Raymond, the decision came in response to a spike in applicants’ requests. “We’re making this offer to accommodate an increase in demand from prospective students who tell us they missed the February LSAT deadlines, but who are interested in starting start law school next fall. Many prospective students feel now is a good time to start law school, and we affirmatively invite these students to apply,” she says.

The LSAT, an admissions requirement for most U.S. law schools, is offered four times each year: December, February, June and September. June test takers are encouraged to register now, especially if they want a seat at a popular test center. The last day to register is May 3, 2017.
