All applicants are required to take the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) and to have their test scores reported to the law school. The score must be no more than five years old at the time an application is considered by the Admissions Committee. The LSAT is offered four times a year at numerous locations around the World. Registration materials for the test may be obtained by calling (215) 968-1001 or writing Law Services, Box 2000, 661 Penn St., Newton, PA 18940-0098 or on the web at www.lsac.org.
Applicants are required to register with the CAS to have test results and academic transcripts processed and sent to the Law School. The CAS supplies the Law school with a report that summarizes the applicant’s academic profile; LSAT score(s); copies of transcripts, writing samples and letters of recommendation. Applicants may contact Law Services directly by calling (215) 968-1001 or look on the Law Services website at www.lsac.org to check the status of their reports or to see when information was sent to Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School.
Students who previously attended Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School and who have not been in attendance at the law school for more than one year must complete the admissions process in the same manner as any other applicant. To be eligible for readmission, the former student must meet all admissions standards applicable at the time of reapplication. It is essential that all time and all activities since the previous enrollment be accounted for in the new application.
