Our admissions committee looks for well-rounded students who demonstrate ambition, strong academic performance, leadership ability, maturity, and involvement in campus and community activities. We prefer applicants who have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, a strong letter of recommendation, relevant professional or volunteer experience, and well-written essays. Please see the tabs to the left for specific admissions criteria related to individual institutes.
Applicants must be 18 years old and have completed at least one semester of undergraduate study at an accredited college or university before applying to attend one of the summer or semester undergraduate programs. Applicants to the Legal Studies Institute must be currently enrolled in an ABA approved law school in the United States.
