Provide two-to-four letters from individuals who can evaluate your candidacy both in regard to your academic skills and personal qualities.


Admissions Policies

The Admissions Committee sets admissions guidelines each year. We begin to review applications in early fall with decisions made on a rolling basis. The committee engages in a holistic review of each applicant and considers undergraduate grades and transcripts, LSAT scores, letters of recommendation, employment, post-graduate educational experience, extracurricular activities, special skills and talents, community service and involvement, personal statement, and other factors.
