Not surprisingly for a top ten law school, Penn Law’s admissions criteria are highly competitive. Beyond the raw LSAT and GPA numbers, Penn Law states that “[w]hile academic excellence is of primary importance for admission, we take all factors in each application into consideration and do not have numeric cutoff points for LSAT or GPA. Instead, we read each individual file, including letters of recommendation, personal statements, and the résumé, to get a full picture of the applicant.”

Penn Law does consider transfer applicants: “Current first-year JD students enrolled in a full-time program who have achieved excellent records at other law schools may apply as transfer students after completion of their first year only; we do not accept midsemester or second-year transfer students. All applicants must apply by July 15. Decisions are made on a rolling basis, beginning in mid-June.”

Penn Law encourages prospective students to visit its campus, particularly while classes are in session, to get better understanding of life at Penn, and they offer both guided and self-guided touring options.
