Admission to the Richardson Law School is based on three things: highest LSAT score, undergrad GPA, and one-third “everything else," which includes transcripts, résumé, personal statement, and two letters of recommendation.
Become familiar with the LSAT test: It makes a big difference between doing well and not doing well. Take practice LSAT tests under timed test conditions. Plan to take the actual exam once. It is expensive. (Kaplan Test Prep and the University of Hawai‘i Alumni Association are sponsoring a free practice LSAT test event Saturday, September 29, from 10 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. Info and registration at: http://bit.ly/HawaiiPracticeFall2012.)
File your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as quickly as possible on January 1, 2013. UH meets the financial requests of students based on need and order in which forms are received. Funding can run out.
