Georgia State University College of Law
Individuals who have previously applied to the College of Law may reapply. While the admissions committee will consider previously submitted materials, you are encouraged to take this opportunity to update and strengthen your application file.
Complete Online Application
Fill out the required online application and submit it along with your $50 nonrefundable application fee, paid by debit card, credit card or online check through LSAC. We recommend that you make a copy of your application for your personal files.
Submit Personal Statement
Attach a typed personal statement electronically to your online admissions file. This is your opportunity to support your application with anything you wish to say about yourself and your abilities, interests or personal history. The personal statement should be no more than two pages double spaced.
Register with Credential Assembly Service (CAS)
Contact LSAC to initiate your “LSAC Law School Report,” which the CAS will forward to us once they have received all required documentation for your application, including your official LSAT score(s), transcripts of all undergraduate and post-graduate work, and letters of recommendation. Keep in mind that this service needs ample time before deadlines to receive, process and forward your materials.
LSAC administers the LSAT four times a year. The February test is the final date considered for fall entry. The admissions committee uses all LSAT scores in the admissions decision process; however, LSAT scores more than three years old will not be considered. For more information or test registration, go to www.lsac.org.
Submit Letters of Recommendation
The College of Law requires two letters of recommendation, no more than two years old, which must be submitted through your LSAC Law School Report. Instructions for this service, which is included in your CAS registration, are available at www.lsac.org. We prefer letters from college professors who can attest to your ability to enter a competitive professional program; however, if you have been out of school for some time, letters regarding your work experience will serve our requirements. You may submit more than two letters, if desired.
