plicants to law schools are
advised that delays in
delivery of a new computer
system have resulted in a
backlog of Law School Data
Assembly Service (LSDAS)
reports to law schools. Law
schools have been made
aware of the problem through
frequent updating on the
status of the processing
Although law school
admission offices may be
somewhat slowed in making
their decisions, students can
be assured that fairness will
be paramount, and no in
dividuals will be penalized for
late reporting delays incurred
by the LSDAS.
Because of the backlog, it
is estimated that, at the
current processing rate, there
will be delays for about the
next eight weeks. Staff have
been greatly expanded and
are working long hours to
meet these problems.

LSDAS, regrets any personal
inconvenience to candidates.
The LSDAS was begun in
1970 at the request of the law
