Admissions Question: February 24th
Q: I notice that your application deadline of March 1st is coming up. Will the admissions committee even review my application if it gets completed after that date?
A: Yes, your application will still be reviewed. Our deadline of March 1st is a priority deadline, not an absolute deadline. This means that priority for space in the class is given to those who completed their applications (i.e. all required items are in the admissions office) before March 1st, but that those who apply after this date will still be considered on a space available basis. That said, applying near the March 1st priority deadline is considered very late in the application process, and may put you at a disadvantage. The best option is to apply by the end of the year of the year prior to your matriculation. In other words, if you are interested in attending Lewis & Clark in the fall of 2011, then completing your application by December 31st puts you in the most competitive position for being accepted to Lewis & Clark Law School.
