Admission Policies

 Admission guidelines are set each year by the Admissions Committee. The Admissions Office begins to review applications in early fall for admission to the following year's entering class. Decisions are made on a continuing basis. Applications should be completed and submitted as early as possible for priority scholarship consideration, although applications are accepted through August 1 for fall start.

The Admissions Committee engages in a holistic review of each applicant and will consider an applicant’s undergraduate grades and transcript, LSAT scores, letters of recommendation, employment, post-graduate educational experience,  extra-curricular activities, special skills and talents, community service and involvement, personal statement, and other factors. 

  • Deferral Policy: The Admissions Committee considers requests for deferral on a case-by-case basis.  Admitted students who wish to defer their enrollment should submit a written request to the Law Admissions Office outlining the reasons for the request.Should the Committee grant the request, a seat will be reserved for the student in the entering class for the following academic year, provided that the student: pays the non-refundable $150 seat deposit by April 15, or other agreed time, of the current year; contacts the Law Admissions Office by January 15 of the following year to confirm intent to enroll that fall; confirms that nothing has taken place in the interim year related to character and fitness that would disqualify the student from entering the practice of law; and pays the $250 commitment deposit by June 15 of the following year.
