After an applicant has been notified of admission, two successive deposits must be paid in order to hold a place in the class. The initial $500 deposit must be received by the Law School by April 1 and a final deposit of $2,150 by May 1. Those applicants receiving notification of acceptance close to or after May 1 must pay this deposit by the date indicated in their emailed notice of admission. This deposit is not refundable. Both deposits will be credited towards the applicant’s tuition and/or fees upon matriculation.
Deferral of Admission
If an admitted applicant is unable to attend the Law School during the year for which admission is offered, he or she may submit a request for a one-year deferral. If a deferral is granted, the admitted applicant will be required to complete a deferral form and submit the initial $500 deposit described above. Any financial assistance that is awarded in one year will not be deferred to the following year.
Requests to reactivate an application from the prior year only must be received by the Law School no later than November 15. Requests for reactivation can be made here. The applicant must submit a fee and newly completed application data form, together with a new personal statement and any transcripts or other information that have changed since the date of the previous application through LSAC. Supporting documents submitted with a previous application will then be added to the applicants file.
