Admission Requirements

Entering first-year students are admitted only once each year in August. Detroit Mercy Law accepts Transfer Applicants for the fall and spring terms and Guest Applicants for all terms.

To be considered for first-time admission, an applicant must have or expect to receive a bachelor's degree by the summer preceding admission and must have taken the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) within the past five years.

We encourage applicants to maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better and to perform at the 50th percentile or better on the LSAT. However, we consider a range of applicants based on all aspects of the application including, but not limited to the following:

  • Letters of recommendation
  • Employment, private and public service, or both
  • The personal statement
  • Resume
  • Undergraduate performance
  • English proficiency

Although the official deadline has passed, we will continue to accept applications and review them in the order in which they're completed until July 1, 2017.
