First-Year Student

The admissions process seeks to identify applicants who show an ability to pursue the study of law successfully and to make an important contribution to the Law Center's educational program and to the legal profession.

  • Academic Achievement
  • Trend of undergraduate grades
  • Rigor of undergraduate institution
  • Writing ability (as demonstrated by the quality of the Personal Statement and the LSAT Writing Sample(s))
  • Demonstrated personal qualities of integrity and commitment
  • Successful graduate study if applicable
  • Professional experience and achievement after college if applicable
  • Letters of recommendation from persons with direct knowledge of the individual's intellectual ability, aptitude for the study of law, and strength of character.
  • Requirements: U.S. Applicants
  • Requirements: Non U.S. Applicants
