Application Process

To prepare to submit your application, you should:

  • Request information and speak with a dedicated admissions counselor.
  • Create a Law School Admissions Council (LSAC) account: All applications must be submitted through LSAC. This is also required to register for the LSAT.
  • Register with the Credential Assembly Service (CAS): This service collects your LSAT score(s), transcripts and evaluations and distributes them to the law schools of your choosing.

Application Requirements

Before your application can be reviewed by the admissions committee, make sure you have completed the following:

  • Take the LSAT or GRE exam, if you have not already done so. We accept valid GRE scores from prospective students who have not taken the LSAT.
  • Request official undergraduate transcripts from all colleges and universities attended be sent to CAS from the registrar’s office.
  • Ensure your letters of recommendation from two recommenders are filed with LSAC.
  • Submit your resume and personal statement.
  • Pay the fees associated with the CAS report so we can pull your application materials from LSAC.
