3+3 Program Requirements
Select students are invited to participate in the program. These include students who:
are admitted to a major in the College of Arts and Sciences or Schools of Business, Engineering, Communications or Health Sciences
have a cumulative high school GPA of 3.5 or higher on a 4.0 scale
score 1200 or higher on the SAT (critical reading plus math) or an ACT composite of 25 or higher
indicate an interest in “pre-law” or “combined BA or BS/JD” on their application for undergraduate admission
fill out the supplemental essay which will ask about their interest in the program
Students who are interested in the program and are close to, but do not meet, these criteria may apply to the undergraduate admissions office for special consideration.
Matriculation into the School of Law
When applying to the law school in their third year, students will be expected to take the LSAT and achieve a score equal to, or greater than, the law school’s first-year class median. Students must file an application for law school by March 15 during their third undergraduate year. The Law School Admissions Office will work with students to ensure that the application is complete.
All applications will be reviewed by the Law School Admissions Committee to make sure the prerequisites are met, that there are no character and fitness issues and that the applicant has a demonstrated record of maturity and leadership that would reflect the ability to succeed in law school.
Students who do not meet the GPA and/or LSAT score requirements may still be considered by the Admissions Committee. Students scoring at the first-year median or higher will be guaranteed a scholarship in the amount awarded to them as undergraduates. In all cases, the scholarship will be subject to the law school renewal requirements.
