JD/MBA Admissions

We make our admission process as straightforward and personalized as possible. If you have any questions or need guidance, our counselors and advisers in the School of Law and School of Business are available to assist you at every stage of your application process.

Application Timeline

We operate under a rolling-admission system, but suggest submitting your application by March 1 for priority fall admission and scholarship consideration.

Candidates for the Dean’s Fellows full-tuition awards should apply by February 1.

Admission Requirements

To enroll in the dual-degree program, a student must file separate applications to and be accepted by both the School of Law and the School of Business. It is possible for students who have not yet completed their degree requirements for one program to apply to the other school to be considered for a dual-degree. Each school assists in adapting the program to the needs and interests of the enrolled student by approving schedules and joint credits for courses.

Admissions for these programs are handled separately, but a student should inform both admissions offices of an interest in pursuing the dual-degree. The earlier you are accepted into both programs and declare pursuit of both degrees, the more beneficial the dual-degree program is in the practical savings of time and credits.

Students accepted into the School of Law are not required to take the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT).

Upon admission to the dual-degree program, the enrolled student must meet with the director of the MBA program and the associate dean for academic affairs at the School of Law for academic counseling.

The most important factors considered are:

  • Undergraduate scholastic record
  • Law School Admission Test (LSAT) scores

We also weigh factors such as:

  • Applicant’s personal statement
  • Letters of recommendation
  • Advanced degrees
  • Life and work experience
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Applicant’s ability to enhance the diversity of perspectives represented in our student body

Because each applicant’s credentials are evaluated based on education and experience, prerequisite courses may be required.
