GPA and LSAT Performance
LSAT performance, undergraduate record, and GPA are taken into account: the median undergraduate GPA for the Class of 2017 was 3.62, and the median LSAT score was 166. Additionally, strong personal qualities and the interview process are large components of admissions decisions, as we do not have a GPA or LSAT score cutoff. Our admissions team takes a holistic approach to evaluating which students would be the best fit for our program.
Cultural, Economic, and Geographic Diversity
We value a varied set of cultural, economic, and geographic experiences in our incoming classes, as each class is highly diverse and uniquely talented. The Class of 2017 represents 158 undergraduate institutions, 40 states (including DC and Puerto Rico), and ten countries: Canada, China, Côte d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, India, Italy, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, South Korea, and the United States. 28% of the class are historically underrepresented minorities, and 43% are women.
Letters of Recommendation and Personal Statement
In addition to LSAT scores, letters of recommendation, and undergraduate transcript, all applicants are also required to submit a two- to three-page personal statement with an updated resume. Successful applicants often write about formative experiences or sources of personal motivation to provide our admissions team with further insight.
Certain law school applicants may be invited to complete an interview with Admissions staff. The Admissions Committee determines who will be interviewed based on the strength of the application.
We encourage all interested students to arrange a campus visit. Please contact the Admissions Office at (314) 935-4525 or firstname.lastname@example.org to set up an appointment, or have a look at our comprehensive visitor’s schedule.
