J.D. Binding Early Decision

Application open — August 15 through December 1*
Decision by — December 31

If you’re admitted through the binding early decision program, you must agree to:

  • withdraw any pending applications to other law schools;
  • not initiate any new applications to other law schools; and
  • enroll at our Law School in the fall semester. Once you’re admitted under the early decision program, you may not request to defer to the regular application process.

*If you are unable to complete your early decision application by the December 1 deadline because you are registered for the December LSAT, please contact the Office of Admissions to request an extension. You will need to submit all other components of the application by the original deadline. Please be advised that requesting an extension may delay your receipt of a final decision depending on when the LSAC releases December test scores.

J.D. Regular Decision

The sooner you apply, the sooner you’re likely to receive a decision. Please be patient, however, since we read every application.
