While many law schools have been eager to receive a variance so JD-Next can be used in admissions decisions, each law school is different, and many are still finalizing their policies regarding how they will use JD-Next.
Some may want to use it as their primary criteria, while some may want to use it in combination with the score from a legacy exam.
1) Send a letter to every admissions department on your list, explaining why you chose to take JD-Next and calling attention to your dual JD-Next credential; your completion of the eight-week course and your exam score.
2) Follow up to ask how that school intends to use your results. Also be sure to ask if there is anything else they need from you to decide whether to admit you to their incoming class.
JD-Next allows you to demonstrate your aptitude and your commitment for JD study, and in doing so it reduces or eliminates the bias acknowledged by the companies that provide legacy exams. The research shows that a student who completes our course prior to applying to law school is a more educated and committed potential student than one who does not.
