Law Admissions

Admissions Question: September 20

September 20, 2015

Q: What is the minimum LSAT/GPA that Lewis & Clark Law School requires for applicants?

A: L&C does not have a minimum LSAT/GPA nor is there a statistical cut-off to our admissions process. Every single application is considered for admission during the application cycle. While LSAT and GPA are considered fairly heavily in the admissions process, the entire file is also considered (the personal statement, resume,
letters of recommendation, undergraduate coursework, etc.) so test scores and
grades are not the only components considered. When you apply, you should talk
about your background and anything that highlights your diversity as an
applicant or conditions that may have adversely affected your past performance. You
can include such discussion in your personal statement or include a
supplemental statement if you wish to talk about that separately. Finally, you can also participate in our optional interview program either in-person, via Skype, or over the phone.
