Do you have tips for completing the application?

  • Application form: Answer all questions on the form. If a question does not apply to you or if you prefer not to answer an optional question, please indicate as such.
  • LSAT Scores: The Admissions Committee does not average multiple LSAT scores together. We only consider your highest LSAT score. 
  • Transcripts: The Admissions Committee considers not only your overall grades, but also coursework, major(s), minor(s), and concentrations. While coursework for advanced degrees is not factored into your LSAC-calculated GPA, the committee will consider graduate studies in its evaluation.
  • Personal Statement: The Admissions Committee gives considerable emphasis to your statement. Include circumstances that you wish to be considered such as a history of overcoming disadvantage, special experiences or characteristics, or a history of high academic performance in spite of poor performance on standardized tests. Incorporate information you believe is indicative of future success in the legal profession.

When are admission decisions made?
Admission decisions are made on a rolling basis. You can follow the status of your application through our Applicant Status Online system. For most applicants, a decision is made within four weeks of receipt of the completed application. If a decision on your file has not been rendered within four weeks of submission, please contact Toledo Law Admissions to request a status update.

Are there joint degree options?

  • Business + Law
  • Criminal Justice + Law
  • Engineering + Law

Where do law students live?
The University of Toledo is a suburban campus, and there are numerous safe and reasonably priced housing options within five miles of campus. One-bedroom apartments in the Toledo area generally rent for $400 to $600 per month depending on the location and amenities offered. On-campus housing is also an option. However, there is no designated law or graduate student dorm, so if you choose to live on-campus, you would likely be housed with undergraduate students. Review our local housing guide for more information.

Can I visit Toledo Law?
Yes! We encourage prospective students to visit campus and meet with our current students and faculty. Toledo Law Admissions events are scheduled year-round. We also welcome individual visits Monday through Friday from 9 am to 4 pm. Please call Toledo Law Admissions or submit a visit request form to arrange your campus visit.
