eAchieve offers a wide range of free online AP classes for Wisconsin high school students.

Law School Admissions Process

After high school you’ll have to attend college to earn a degree and prepare for the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). This test is required by every law school in the country. Your score will determine which schools may accept you as a law student. Prestigious Ivy League law schools require prospective students to have very high LSATs in addition to high GPAs.

Once you’re in law school, you’re looking at a minimum of 3 years to complete your Juris Doctor program. A Master of Laws degree only takes one year but limits your job opportunities after graduation.

eAchieve Academy graduates have been accepted into colleges and universities across the United States. We’ve even had students invited to study at international institutions. Use the study skills you establish in high school to prep for the LSATs and the bar exam.
