It is important to note that all applications receive a holistic review before a decision is made. We take the entire application into consideration, placing weight on LSAT, GPA, narrative statement, work history, community service, extra-curricular activities, and letters of recommendation, if provided. We welcome an addendum, giving us additional information, if you believe it would be beneficial to your candidacy.

We urge you to look at the wide range of credentials of those admitted to the law school. You are not a number to us; therefore, you should know there are many factors taken into consideration outside of "the numbers." We encourage you to apply so that we may consider your candidacy as the unique individual you are.
