Applying to MC Law

 

Admissions Policies

 

Your first move toward success is applying to MC Law.

 

As at any law school, your undergraduate grade point average and LSAT score are important elements of the evaluation. MC Law, however, also gives significant weight to your personal statement, recommendations, employment history, military service, graduate work, activities, community service, and personal circumstances. These factors help the admissions committee identify applicants who bring not only academic potential, but also diverse perspectives and experiences to the MC Law community.

 

A bachelor's degree from an accredited four-year college or university is required and confirmation of your degree is necessary before registration. You must have taken the Law School Admissions test (LSAT) within three years of application to MC Law; scores older than three years will not be considered.

 

In addition, you are required to subscribe to the Credential Assembly Service (CAS) Report. The CAS Report is sent to the law school upon request and includes your undergraduate transcript summary, copies of all undergraduate and graduate transcripts, LSAT scores, and a copy of the LSAT writing sample.

 

The LSAT/LSDAS  Information Book is available at most undergraduate schools or may be obtained directly from LSAC.

Interviews/Campus Visits

 

Personal interviews are not a required part of the application process.  However, applicants are encouraged to visit MC Law. 

 

 

Prospective students are encouraged to visit MC Law and see first-hand how the law school can help you prepare for a successful experience as a law student and a successful career as a legal professional.

 

Prospective law students are welcome to visit by appointment on weekdays while classes are ongoing. Contact Bobbie Cole (brcole@mc.edu), Jay Armstrong (armstron@mc.edu), or Hope Weaver (hweaver@mc.edu) to schedule your visit to MC Law.

 

You may also consider our Friday Afternoon Visit events, as they are convenient for many visitors and will include:

  • Sign-in at the Admissions staffed table in the lobby of the classroom building at 12:30 pm
  • Campus tour led by current MC Law students
  • Sit in on first year law class from 1:00 - 1:50 pm
  • Opportunity for group Q&A session with our Director of Admissions
 

 

*Friday Afternoon visits take place every Friday, with the exception of the second Friday of every month.*

 

Advance notification is requested, so send an email to brcole@mc.edu or armstron@mc.edu.

 

 

Letters of Recommendation

 

Letters of recommendation are not required, but can be effective in enhancing your application.  MC Law particularly encourages evaluations and recommendations from people who are familiar with your academic ability or work performance.  MC Law accepts recommendations sent directly to the Admissions Office or received through the LSDAS Letter of Recommendation Service. 

 

 

Review Process


The MC Law admissions committee begins reviewing completed applications in November and makes decisions on a rolling basis.  Applicants are notified of the admissions committee's decision by letter.

 

Deposits

 

Applicants accepted for admission are required to pay two deposits of $250 each on or before the dates set forth in their acceptance letter.  The total deposit is non-refundable, but is credited toward tuition.
