Part 2 – Determining Your Law School Application Category

Welcome to Prelaw.com - Sponsored by the Richardson Prep Centre - Toronto, Ontario Canad - Success Favors The PREPared Mind

Any applicant who meets the educational requirements is entitled to apply as a “regular applicant.” Some schools may have additional application categories. These categories give you the opportunity to have additional factors considered as part of your application.

These categories vary from school to school. Examples include:

  • mature student
  • access
  • special circumstances

When considering these categories, you must consider both:

Jurisdictional Issues – Am I eligible to apply in the category?

Probability Of Success – Even if I am eligible to apply in this category, what are my chances of success?

The issue of “application categories” is covered extensively in both:
