The Wake Forest University School of Law strives to enroll a highly qualified student body with demonstrated academic potential for success in law school and the legal profession along with the diversity of perspective and experience found in a modern society. In selecting a class, our admissions committee considers each applicant’s highest LSAT score and undergraduate transcript as well as exceptional personal talents, work experience, community service, leadership potential, graduate study, maturity and a history of overcoming economic or social hardship.
Applications are considered continuously throughout the admissions season in roughly the order that they are completed. Some applications receive an immediate decision; others are held for further review. We make every effort to announce our decisions within a reasonable amount of time. You can also check your application status online.
