Introducing the Class of 2018

*These statistics are intended only as a guide.

Numbers arguably don’t lie, but they do fail to capture the extraordinary breadth of interests and experiences evident in our student body.

In fact, the best way to fully appreciate Penn Law is to visit.

The Law School hosts information sessions for prospective students throughout the fall and spring semesters. Please check here for information session dates and times. You may also pick up a self-guided tour packet any weekday.

This profile reflects the class as of the beginning of Orientation on August 27, 2015. Final data will be certified by the Law School Admissions Council in late Fall 2015.
