How to Apply

Create LSAC.org Account

Add UToledo to List

LSAC is the one-stop portal for your law school application. Create your LSAC.org account to get started. Add "University of Toledo" to the School List on your homepage.

Prep for the LSAT

Preparation is vital for success on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). Prepare with a no-cost, mock LSAT session at Toledo Law with tips for taking the test, followed by an official PrepTest. Khan Academy also offers a no-cost, online prep course. Review our LSAT Overview for more information about the test.

Take the LSAT

The LSAT is offered throughout the year. Visit LSAC.org for dates, locations, and registration deadlines. The Admissions Committee considers your highest score instead of an average. For spring start, we accept scores from the October or prior LSAT exam. For fall start, we accept scores from the June or prior LSAT.

Provide two-to-four letters from individuals who can evaluate your candidacy both in regard to your academic skills and personal qualities.

Transcripts

Submit official transcripts from all institutions attended, even if a degree was not achieved.


Admissions Policies

The Admissions Committee sets admissions guidelines each year. We begin to review applications in early fall with decisions made on a rolling basis. The committee engages in a holistic review of each applicant and considers undergraduate grades and transcripts, LSAT scores, letters of recommendation, employment, post-graduate educational experience, extracurricular activities, special skills and talents, community service and involvement, personal statement, and other factors.
