The University of Georgia School of Law seeks to enroll an accomplished student body whose breadth of experiences and array of talents will enrich the educational experience for all students. The admissions committee considers admission test scores and grade point averages to be significant measures upon which to base admission decisions, but committee members also recognize the importance of other components of the applicant's record, including but not limited to: character; community involvement; professional activities; employment experiences; undergraduate institution and major; graduate and professional school work; and state of residence. The Admissions Committee will consider all LSAT scores but will rely primarily on the highest LSAT score if an applicant takes the LSAT more than once. As of July 1, 2015, LSAC will no longer provide scores older than five years plus the current testing year either to law schools or to candidates. Scores earned prior to June 1, 2015, will neither be reported to law schools nor available to candidates.
The University of Georgia School of Law will accept the Graduate Records Examination ('GRE") or the Graduate Management Admission Test ("GMAT") in lieu of the LSAT for those students who are enrolled in or admitted to another Graduate Program at the University of Georgia. Eligible students must have a cumulative undergraduate G.P.A. of 3.5 or higher and must have scored in the 85th percentile when they took the GRE or GMAT. Please note that there is a limit to the number of students who can be admitted without an LSAT score in any particular year.
