Application may be submitted at any time after September 1 during the calendar year immediately preceding the calendar year in which you plan to begin law school. Applications are processed on a rolling basis; therefore, early application is strongly advised. Late applications are processed according to available space and may be placed at a competitive disadvantage. Applicants are responsible for making sure that all required documents reach the Office of Admissions on time. The Admissions Committee will not begin to consider any file until it is complete.
Applicants must register with the Credential Assembly Service (CAS), which receives and analyzes academic transcripts, and take the LSAT. Applicants are responsible for insuring that the LSDAS file is completed on time.
Letters of recommendation can be helpful in the decision-making process, particularly when they include appraisals of a candidate's academic abilities and personal qualities and when they are written by someone who has personal knowledge and is qualified to make such assessments. While strongly encouraged, letters of recommendation are not required. They may be submitted at the applicant's discretion and should be forwarded directly to the LSAC Letter of Recommendation Service.
