Quinnipiac University Law

JD/MBA Admissions

We make our admission process as straightforward and personalized as possible. If you have any questions or need guidance, our counselors and advisers in the School of Law and School of Business are available to assist you at every stage of your application process.

Application Timeline

We operate under a rolling admission system but suggest submitting your application by early March for priority fall admission and scholarship consideration.

Candidates for the Dean’s Fellows full-tuition awards should apply by February 1.


Admission Requirements

To enroll in the dual-degree program, a student must file separate applications to and be accepted by both the School of Law and the School of Business. It is possible for students who have not yet completed their degree requirements for one program to apply to the other school to be considered for a dual-degree. Each school assists in adapting the program to the needs and interests of the enrolled student by approving schedules and joint credits for courses.

Admissions for these programs are handled separately, but a student should inform both admissions offices of an interest in pursuing the dual-degree. The earlier you are accepted into both programs and declare pursuit of both degrees, the more beneficial the dual-degree program is in the practical savings of time and credits.

Students accepted into the School of Law are not required to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT).

Upon admission to the dual-degree program, the enrolled student must meet with the director of the MBA program and the associate dean for academic affairs at the School of Law for academic counseling.

The most important factors considered are:

  • Undergraduate scholastic record

  • Law School Admission Test (LSAT) scores

We also weigh factors such as:

  • Applicant’s personal statement

  • Letters of recommendation

  • Advanced degrees

  • Life and work experience

  • Extracurricular activities

  • Applicant’s ability to enhance the diversity of perspectives represented in our student body

Because each applicant’s credentials are evaluated based on education and experience, prerequisite courses may be required.

At Quinnipiac University School of Law, our focus is on educating the whole lawyer. We empower you to retain your personal values and sense of self while teaching you to be skilled, knowledgeable, and ethical practitioners of the law. Quinnipiac Law has a responsibility to educate lawyers who will serve the legal needs of all members of society. With this responsibility in mind, we enroll students whose lived experience suggests that they have the capacity to make a substantial contribution to the learning environment of the law school and to distinguish themselves in serving the community through the practice of law, policy improvement, government service, legal scholarship, or other law-related activities. We aspire to educate lawyers who are interested in improving access to quality representation and justice. 
While past academic performance and LSAT scores are important aspects of an application, we also consider additional factors including (but not limited to): letters of recommendation; the clarity and quality of writing (throughout the entire application); advanced degrees; employment history; commitment to community service; experience navigating social, educational, physical, or economic challenges; moral character; academic growth and improving grades; rigor of undergraduate curriculum; extracurricular activities; distinctions/honors achieved; and life experience.
