Early Assurance Program
An experimental program approved by the ABA in 2009, the Early Assurance Program is designed to encourage top undergraduates from Georgetown University to apply to Georgetown Law. The Early Assurance Program is designed to give a student the freedom to pursue a less conventional curriculum during his or her senior year and is non-binding.
Who May Apply
The Program is for Juniors currently enrolled at Georgetown University only. Students in all majors are encouraged to apply.
Early Assurance applicants are exempt from taking the LSAT and registering with the CAS. Instead, applicants should include an official transcript with at least five semesters of undergraduate grades with their application. Early Assurance applicants must also submit two recommendations, one of which must be the Early Assurance Dean's Certification Form. Competitive Early Assurance applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of at least a 3.8.
Please keep in mind that while the LSAT is not a required element for consideration to Georgetown Law through the Early Assurance Program, the LSAT is a prerequisite for applying to other law schools either as an entering first year or transfer student.
Application and Deadlines
Early Assurance applicants must download and submit the Early Assurance Application and pay a $85 non-refundable application fee by check or money order. For Georgetown Juniors hoping to matriculate in Fall 2014, your file must be complete with all required documentation (including application form and fee) by April 10, 2013.
