Yes, you may visit the College of Law. Please contact the Office of Admissions to schedule your tour here.

No. Our program is a full-time day only program beginning every Fall semester. As an alternative, we do provide an opportunity for students to attend less than full time. The Adjusted Curriculum is available to students in Moscow and Boise. Please visit our website for more information about our Adjusted Curriculum Path or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
For the entering class of 2017, the median LSAT score was 153 and median GPA was 3.29.
We strongly suggest you take the LSAT after you have fully prepared for the examination. The LSAT is offered four (4) times per year: February, June, October, and December. Starting in June 2018, the LSAT will be offered six (6 times a year). If you are planning to start law school in August, you should plan to sit for the LSAT in October or December of the proceeding year. Although, we do accept scores from the February and June LSAT of the same year you plan to attend. For more information about the LSAT, please consult the Law School Admissions website: www.lsac.org.
Your personal statement should be no longer than two (2) pages, double-spaced. An applicant should not feel confined to just two or three pages if he or she feels more space is needed to convey the information necessary to fully inform the reviewer. We use your personal statement in lieu of a personal interview, and to evaluate your writing skills. Include anything that you wish to tell us about yourself beyond test scores and grade point averages. Let us know who you are — your unique strengths, talents, experiences, motivations, and aspirations. It’s your chance to tell us why, beyond your academic qualifications, we should accept you. Be creative. Spend time on your statement. If you’ve done many things and have an extensive work background, don’t try to cram all of it in. Instead, expand on a few experiences or facts in detail.
Admitted students have the option to defer their acceptance for one year on a case by case basis. Students interested in deferring should e-mail their request with a brief explanation to email@example.com The request would then need to be approved by the Director of Admissions. This process typically takes 1-2 weeks. If a deferral is granted, a letter will be sent to the student confirming the decision. Any awarded scholarships will carry over with the deferral provided that the student submits the $500 seat deposit.
Yes. You will need to register with LSAC to sign up for the LSAT. Because your credentials are compiled by LSAC and delivered to UI through this channel. If you choose to come to UI for law school, you will have to order new transcripts for UI because LSAC’s transcripts were “original” to LSAC but not to UI. You can register with CAS by visiting LSAC at www.lsac.org.
We consider the highest LSAT score achieved for purposes of admission.
LSAT scores are valid for five (5) years.
Yes. This will help the staff complete your application before your LSAT score is received. Your application status will be " Incomplete" and once your score comes in, your status will change to "Complete" and your application will be reviewed to the admissions committee
