Admissions General FAQ
How can I visit campus?
Go to the visit campus page to register for a campus tour or to make an appointment with an admissions counselor. You will have the opportunity to sign-up for a class visit or take a campus tour led by one of our student ambassadors. If you are unable to attend any of the scheduled 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) CAS report (includes LSAT score and may include letters of recommendation); 2) Letter(s) of Recommendation (one letter is required, up to two are accepted); 3) Personal Statement; 4) Resume (strongly encouraged).

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 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.
