Academic Requirements

We pride ourselves on the diversity and range of our student body so we consider a variety of factors, beyond the LSAT score and undergraduate grade point average when reviewing applicant files. For more information, please review our most recent Class Profile.

While the admissions process is competitive, all applications are thoroughly reviewed and considered. Early application is encouraged so that the applicant, if admitted, may take full advantage of financial aid opportunities.

Admissions policies and procedures, deadlines, fees, courses, degree programs, and other matters described on this website may change without notice. The law school reserves the right to make changes to any matters cited on this website.
