Application Process

Download an Application for Admission form. Submit the completed form and $65.00 application fee (cash or check, non-refundable) by U.S. Mail or in person. It's fine to submit your application and fee first to get the process started. Contact the Office of Admissions for deadlines.

Submit all other required documents (U.S. Mail, in person or CAS)

  • Official transcripts from all colleges attended (sealed envelopes)
  • LSAT score report (if applicable)
  • Letters of recommendation (Original, signed, sealed envelopes)
    • 2 with LSAT score
    • 4 without LSAT score; minimum 2 professional
  • Personal statement
    • Two pages, double spaced, typed
    • Explain why you want to go to law school and why now is a good time to do it.
  • Skills essay (without LSAT score only)
    • Two pages, double spaced, typed
    • Discuss the skills and characteristics that will make you a successful law student. Give examples of how you have used those skills in academics and/or work.

If you have a COMPLETE Credential Assembly Service (CAS) file with LSAC, mark "YES" on question 8 of the Application form and GUCL will order the file. NOTE: File must be complete (all transcripts, LORs, LSAT score), report fees paid, and GUCL selected as a recipient school.

Only completed applicant files are submitted for review. The sooner you complete your applicant file, the sooner you will receive an admissions decision. Select applicants will be contacted if an interview has been requested by the Admissions Committee.

Prior law students, applicants educated outside the USA, or applicants seeking admission as Special Students should contact the law school for assistance before applying as additional documents are required.

All documents and other items submitted during the application process become property of the law school. No documents or other items submitted during the application process will be copied for or returned to an applicant regardless of the status of the Application for Admission.
