JD/MBA Admissions

How to Apply

Submit Integrated Application

Applicants to the three-year Carey JD/MBA Program must apply via an integrated application. Applicants should submit the JD/MBA application through Wharton’s application system, which includes the elements of the full-time MBA application plus a University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School supplement.

Register with Law School Admission Council

In addition to submitting the JD/MBA application through Wharton’s application system, applicants also must register with the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) Credential Assembly Service (CAS). Please do not fill out nor submit the First Year JD application through the LSAC Electronic Application service. Applicants should arrange to have all transcripts sent to LSAC from each college or university attended and to have duplicate copies of the letters of recommendation submitted through Wharton’s application system also submitted to LSAC. Applicants must send official test score reports directly to Penn Carey Law at the time of application. Additional details regarding LSAC and CAS are available within the application instructions.

Deadlines

Applicants to the Carey JD/MBA Program must apply during Round 1 or Round 2 of the Wharton MBA application timeline. Applicants to the program will be notified of interview invitations and admissions decisions according to Wharton’s timeline.

Applicants are encouraged to apply prior to matriculation in the Law School. However, since the first year of the three-year JD/MBA program takes place at the Law School, Law School students have the option of applying to the three-year JD/MBA program during their 1L year, during Round 1 or Round 2 of the Wharton MBA admissions timeline.

Post Acceptance

Given the unique nature of the program, applicants may not, after receiving an offer of admission, decide to enroll in one school and not the other (i.e., an applicant may not choose to only attend Wharton and not the Law School, or vice versa, after a joint decision has been rendered).
