The Admissions Committee will consider many factors in the admissions process, particularly performance on the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) and undergraduate grade point average.

Students who intend to practice law should be aware that admission to the bar in all states involves character, fitness and other qualifications. Before applying for admission to law school, applicants are advised to investigate the requirements for admission to the practice of law in any jurisdiction in which they intend to practice. Some state bars may require registration at the time of entry into law school. An applicant's ability to be admitted to the practice of law, even after successful completion of legal studies and graduation from law school, may be severely limited if the applicant has had any legal issue. Students are encouraged to determine the requirements for the state(s) in which they intend to practice by consulting the website of the National Conference of Bar Examiners at http://www.ncbex.org/.
