Application Process

October 1 Applications begin to be submitted and application interviews begin
November Application review begins
December First decisions mailed
March 1 Financial aid priority deadline
March 15 Application priority deadline (applications still accepted after this date)

Admission is on a rolling basis. Our earliest decision letters will be mailed in December.

It is strongly recommended that you apply much earlier than our application deadline as review of files begins long before then.  We also recommend you take the LSAT by December. Highly qualified applicants from the February test may be considered, but competition becomes greater the later one applies.
