Prospects for Admission

In reviewing applicant files, the Admissions Committee considers trends in an applicant's Undergraduate Grade Point Average (UGPA), the school(s) attended, the applicant's major area of concentration, post-baccalaureate study, and the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT).

A table lower on this page illustrates an applicant's prospects for admission based upon UGPA and LSAT score.
