We just posted new lessons in our Admissions Course:

What are seat deposits? Are they binding?

Can I deposit at more than one law school? Will law schools know?

    We just improved this lesson. PSA:

    According to LSAC, member law schools (and that’s all of them) must “allow applicants to freely accept a new offer from a law school even though a scholarship has been accepted, a deposit has been paid, or a commitment has been made to another school.” Thus, even if you have paid a deposit and signed something about your intent to apply, you can call a school, ask for some flexibility, and cite the LSAC guidelines if necessary.

    If you feel like you cannot pick a school by the deposit deadline, you can reach out with a phone call to the admissions office and ask for an extension.
