Frequently Asked Questions
How can I visit campus?
Go to the Visit Campus page to register for a campus tour, make an appointment with an admissions counselor and view the campus online. You will have the opportunity to sit in on a class or go on a tour led by one of our friendly student ambassadors. If you are unable to attend these events, private visits may be arranged by contacting our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 213.736.1074.
How can I apply?
We strongly encourage applicants to use the LSAC electronic application. In addition to the application itself, we require the following: 1) $65 non-refundable application fee or approved fee waiver; 2) CAS report (includes LSAT score and may include letters of recommendation); 3) Letters of Recommendation (one letter is required, up to three are accepted); 4) Personal Statement; 5) Resume (strongly encouraged). (Evaluations are accepted but are not required and they will not fulfill the letter of recommendation requirement.)
What is the application deadline?
The priority application deadline for the Day Division is February 15, 2013. The priority application deadline for the Evening Division is April 16, 2013. The June LSAT will be accepted for the Evening Program.
What are your LSAT and GPA ranges?
For the fall 2012 entering class our LSAT range is:
25th% = 158
50th% = 161
75th% = 163
The GPA range is:
25th% = 3.32
50th% = 3.54
75th% = 3.67
How much is tuition?
For the 2012-2013 school year, the cost for tuition and fees for the Day Division is $44, 230 per year and the Evening Division is $29,190 per year.
Do you offer financial aid and/or scholarships?
Yes, we offer both financial aid and scholarships. Financial Aid consists of a loan package that will be determined by the Financial Aid Office and any scholarships awarded by the Admissions Office. All admitted students are considered for scholarships; there is no separate application required. The Scholarship Committee requires an additional statement for admitted students interested in the Public Interest Scholars Program. View our Frequently Asked Questions page for more information on financial aid.
Can I apply for admissions with the February LSAT?
Yes, we do accept the February LSAT score. However, for applicants applying to the Day program we caution that by the time we receive February scores, a large number of seats will have been filled; therefore, it can be more competitive for the remaining seats. For applicants applying to the evening program, there is no disadvantage to taking the February test, as the priority deadline is not until April.
How do you treat multiple LSAT scores?
If you have taken the LSAT multiple times and have a score differential of 4 points or more, we ask that you submit an addendum explaining the circumstances surrounding the disparity. At our discretion, we may base the decision solely on your high score.
Do you grant deferrals on offers of admission?
Requests for deferrals are taken on a case-by-case basis. Generally, deferrals are only granted when circumstances not in existence and that could not have been foreseen at the time of your application arise prior to your enrollment to Loyola. It is important to note that, if granted, a deferral is binding; therefore, contractually obligating you to attend Loyola the following year. Scholarships are NOT deferred. You will be re-considered the following year with that current applicant pool.
What constitutes misconduct in the admissions process?
Because the legal profession requires the highest standard of ethical conduct, applicants are required to be truthful and accurate in their application documents and interact professionally and responsibly with members of the Admissions Office and law school. Applicants are strongly encouraged to review LSAC's Rules Governing Misconduct and Irregularities to insure their compliance with this standard.
