We realize that this is a challenging time as we navigate through the impact of COVID-19. Given current circumstances, we have extended our fall 2020 priority application deadline from March 1 to July 1. Fall 2020 applicants who take the May LSAT-Flex, June LSAT, or the GRE and submit a completed application by July 1 will be given full consideration.

Learn more about the May LSAT-Flex for April LSAT registrants. With the exception of Mainland China and Iran, testing at home is now available for the GRE® General Test

Questions? The Office of Admissions is available Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for appointments by phone and video meetings. Request an appointment today!
