Applicants may apply to Pepperdine University School of Law via the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) website. A CAS report will be requested once the electronic application has been submitted.
Both the electronically-submitted applications and the CAS reports are mailed from LSAC to the Office of Admissions, and it takes an average of 2 - 3 weeks for the Office of Admissions to receive them.
Therefore, all applicants must allow 2 - 3 weeks from the time of transmission to the time of processing for an application to become complete and additional time for an application to be ready for review by the Admissions Committee. Please note that during peak application periods, the processing time may increase.
After all application components have been processed and the application is ready to be reviewed by the Admissions Committee, it will take approximately 8 weeks for a decision to be made.
The Admissions Committee begins reviewing completed applications in November, and the first decision letters are sent out before the end of the calendar year. Decisions are made on a rolling basis, meaning that applications are reviewed in the order in which they become complete.
