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.
