Admission Decisions

How The Committee Decides

The Admissions Committee considers all information in an applicant’s file including significant advanced education, writing ability demonstrated through the LSAT essay and personal statements, significant life experiences, and other information in an applicant’s file that indicate promise of academic excellence, diversity of background, or perspective that will enrich the educational experience of the class.

Online Status Checker

All applicants may check the status of their application online. Upon completion of an applicant's file, the Admissions Office will send the applicant a "Complete Notification E-mail" containing the applicant's username and password for checking Application Status.

Please note that the status checker will display the status of the applicant's file all the way up to and including the final admission decision (e.g. the status checker will tell the applicant whether he or she has been admitted, placed in the Standby Pool, or denied).

Denied Applicants

In addition to receiving notification via the online status checker, denied applicants will receive an e-mail.

Standby Pool Applicants

In addition to receiving notification via the online status checker, applicants placed in the Standby Pool will receive an e-mail.

Admitted Applicants

In addition to receiving notification via the online status checker, admitted applicants will receive an e-mail and an official Letter of Acceptance. The official Letter of Acceptance will include non-refundable seat deposit information and scholarship offers. If an applicant's official Letter of Acceptance does not include a scholarship offer, he or she will be re-evaluated for College of Law Scholarships after the seat deposit deadline.
