Files are forwarded to the Faculty Admissions Committee for review in the order in which they are completed, and it typically takes eight to ten weeks from the date of completion for a decision to be made. If you have indicated your intention to sit for a future LSAT exam, we place your file on hold and wait for your new scores before passing your file on to the Committee for review.
Your application has been sent to the Faculty Admissions Committee for review. It can take anywhere from 6-8 weeks for an application to go through the complete review process. We appreciate your patience during this time. Once the Faculty Admissions Committee has completed the review of your application, your online status will be updated to reflect the Committee’s decision.
