dc.description.abstract As a student who is currently involved in the law school admissions process, I have found that there are several things I did not know before I began the process. There are many guides available on the market to help one prepare for the LSAT and explain the basics of applying to law school. However, I never was able to locate an all-inclusive guide that detailed the entire experience of law school admissions. It would have been extremely informative and helpful to have had access to a "one stop" guide that could have told me about everything from the LSAT to the time it takes to receive acceptance letters in the mail. In response to the need for such a guide, I have decided to create one as a senior honors creative project. This guide will be in the form of a handbook that will hopefully be used by future Ball State University students and help make the law school admissions process a little easier.Through the use of various sources, I will compile information regarding all aspects of the law school admission process including the procurement of application materials and preparing for and taking the LSAT. I will also highlight my own personal experiences within the application process. In order to ensure that this guide is different from the handbooks currently available, I plan to include items not found in such books. These include a section of interviews with current law students and a section on ways to make an individual appealing to law schools. I will also include information about the application process, financial information, and other relevant items in my handbook. Hopefully, once all of this information is complied in one place, the result will be a useful guide that can be utilized by Ball State students for many years to come.
