While we have been notified you have applied, please note that it can take as many as three to four weeks for us to receive your completed report from LSAC. Files will not be read until all the information has been submitted. Please make sure to check the Requirements List on the ASO Web page and your LSAC account to determine that all information is submitted in a timely manner.
Once your application appears complete, it will be forwarded to the Admissions Committee for review. The committee attempts to make decisions as quickly as possible. However, because of the increased volume of applications and in an attempt to enroll the best possible class, many decisions are not finalized until March or April. We appreciate your patience during this process.
Please note that we will send all correspondence to the e-mail listed on your application (and your ASO page). This will include e-mails about when your file is complete and when a decision is made. Please make sure that this e-mail address is correct and remains current. If you are not receiving e-mails from the Office of Admissions, check your spam folder.
