Applications submitted electronically are mailed from the LSAC to the Office of Admissions. Therefore, all applicants must allow 2 - 3 weeks from the time of transmission to the time of processing, whether the application was submitted electronically or through the mail.
An LSDAS report will be requested once the application is processed. Since the requested LSDAS reports are also mailed from LSAC to the Office of Admissions, it takes an average of 2 - 3 weeks for the Office of Admissions to receive them. During peak application periods, the processing time may increase.
After all application components have been submitted and the application is complete, it will take approximately 8 weeks to be reviewed. The review process will begin in early January, and the first decision letters will be sent out in early February. Decisions are made on a rolling basis - meaning that applications are reviewed in the order in which they become complete.
