Earle Mack School of Law Admission Criteria
Our students take classes in a new, state-of-the-art academic building, and are able to have at least one intensive, semester co-op in one of the region’s best corporate, non-profit, law firm, public service, government or judicial office, and to be supervised by an experienced attorney who not only knows his or her field, but is eager to help students learn what it means to practice law in context. Finally, our students are required to use their skills in service to the public, which we believe is in the finest traditions of the legal profession, and of the Philadelphia lawyer.
Candidates for admission are required to demonstrate excellence and leadership in their careers.
- Applicants must have earned a baccalaureate degree from an institution accredited by one of the regional accrediting associations of the United States or, if foreign educated, a degree equivalent to a four year baccalaureate degree
- Applicants must be registered for Law School Data Assembly Service (LSDAS)
- Applicants must have taken the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT)
- The candidate’s undergraduate grade point average and LSAT scores will be strong factors in determining admission to the law school.
- In addition, the Admissions Committee will consider a student’s extracurricular activities, work experience, and volunteer service.
We seek a diverse class of students from different racial and ethnic backgrounds, from different parts of the country and world, and from different socioeconomic backgrounds.
Decisions are made on a rolling basis and the size of our classes is limited to ensure the quality of the educational experience. For this reason, students are encouraged to apply early.
