Admission to the Program
Juniors applying for admission to this program must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). The School of Law evaluates carefully the quality of the student's academic record, faculty recommendations, and the applicant's LSAT score. Successful applicants for accelerated admission usually have an undergraduate cumulative grade point average and an LSAT score that are at or above the median of the entering class cited on the law school’s information page. Applicants to the Accelerated Program are also required to interview with the Admissions Committee.
When an applicant's GPA/LSAT profile is at an acceptable level, other qualifications are considered, including extracurricular activities, involvement in cultural or civic affairs, and work experience. The School of Law welcomes applications from qualified students belonging to groups under-represented in the legal profession.
