Applications are due July 15 of each year for the fall entering class. However, we encourage applicants to apply early for consideration for scholarship opportunities.
The Process For applying to law school
- TAKE THE LAW SCHOOLS ADMISSIONS TEST - You must have taken the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) within five years of application to MC Law; scores older than five years will not be considered.
- PREPARE A PERSONAL STATEMENT - The personal statement provides an opportunity for you to present yourself, your background, your ideas, and your qualifications to the Admissions Committee. This document is submitted as part of the LSAC Admissions Application.
- SUBMIT AN ADMISSIONS APPLICATION - An application should be submitted online through the Law School Admission Council (LSAC).
- CAS REPORT SENT TO MC - The Central Assembly Service (CAS) Report, provided by the Law School Admissions Council, 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. CAS registration takes place as part of the LSAC Admissions Application.
- SEND 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.
A strong LSAT score is an important part of your law school application. We encourage you to devote sufficient time to study and preparation for this important test.
Most students will spend several months preparing for the LSAT. The Mississippi College LSAT review course is intended to be a capstone review after you have completed your own LSAT preparation. This LSAT review includes two LSAT exams with answers and explanations for each section. To register contact:
