The M.L.S. Admissions Timeline

The M.L.S. Admissions Committee at Dickinson Law reviews completed applications on an ongoing basis. Although the Admissions Committee attempts to notify applicants whose applications are incomplete, it is ultimately the applicant’s responsibility to ensure timely completion of his or her application.

Many students seek to enroll in the fall semester (August), but Dickinson Law also offers the option of beginning in the spring semester (January).

Decisions regarding financial aid and scholarships for Dickinson Law’s M.L.S. Program are released on a rolling basis and follow notification of admission.
