Did You Know...
Baylor Law School's admissions process is highly selective. The most important factors in the process are an applicant's cumulative undergraduate grade point average and LSAT score, with consideration also given to letters of recommendation, academic achievements, extra-curricular activities, work experience, other evidence of maturity, a strong work ethic, and the ability to contribute to the diversity of the Baylor Law School community.
Baylor Law School has three entering classes:
- Spring (February)
- Summer (May)
- Fall (August)
We encourage applicants to apply for admission to all three quarters to increase their chances of admission. To do so, you must submit a separate and complete application packet for each quarter, meaning multiple applications and multiple copies of all supporting documents.
If you apply online, it's free! Apply online here!
Our Fall early decision process is non-binding. If you are accepted to the Fall quarter, you are not obligated to withdraw the applications you have submitted at other schools. The Early Decision Program deadline for Fall 2013 has already passed.
We require only one letter of recommendation. You must submit one letter of recommendation from a professor, employer, or other individual who can attest to your ability to enter a competitive professional program. Your letter(s) must be submitted through the LSAC letter of recommendation service at www.lsac.org. While we only require one letter of recommendation, we will accept up to three letters.
We really will read your personal statement. The personal statement is your opportunity to persuade the Admissions Committee that you should be admitted to Baylor Law School, and we take your words seriously. You may use a personal statement that you prepared for another school or already have on file, but it must be a product solely of your own work.
