Apply to the JD/MA in Religious Studies Program

Overview

Wake Forest University School of Law values all components of the application as a part of a holistic review. We encourage you to thoughtfully consider how each component will convey to the Admissions Committee your qualifications for law school and potential for success. In most cases, there is no single component that individually determines the final decision.

All applications must be submitted by April 15 (extended for Fall 2021) and should be complete by May 1. After application decisions are released beginning in or around January, decisions will continue to be released on a rolling basis throughout the remainder of the cycle.

How to Apply

  1. Take the LSAT or GRE
    • To submit your GRE score(s), applicants need to log into their ETS account and select Wake Forest University School of Law as a recipient using ETS institution code 3760. You must submit all GRE scores from the past 5 years. LSAT scores from the past 5 years are automatically provided to Wake Forest University when you apply. Any test scores provided (LSAT, GRE, or both) will be considered in your admissions decision.
    • Wake Forest Law will consider scores from the LSAT-Flex or GRE General Test at Home for the Fall 2021 admissions cycle.
  2. Register with the LSAC Credential Assembly Service (CAS)
  3. Complete the JD application (Available on October 1, 2020)
  4. Complete the MA in Religious Studies application

Applying with GRE Scores

Wake Forest Law is one of several schools that accept Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores for admissions consideration. Applicants who would like to be considered based on their GRE scores should not register or sit for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). Scores and registration information is automatically sent to Wake Forest Law for applicants who have taken an LSAT in the past or who sit for an administration during the application process. Wake Forest Law must consider any LSAT score or registration that is reported. Subsequently, reported GRE scores will be invalid for the admissions process.
