Apply Early Decision (Binding)
The Early Decision process is designed for those who have already researched their law school options and are certain that Georgetown Law is their first choice of schools. This process allows such applicants a means of expressing to the Admissions Committee their commitment to attend Georgetown, if admitted. Any candidate for whom receipt of institutional financial aid is a prerequisite for enrolling should not apply through the Early Decision process. Instead, candidates for whom receipt of institutional financial aid is a prerequisite for enrolling should apply Regular Decision.
Please be advised that the Early Decision process is binding. Because offers of admission extended under the Early Decision process are binding, candidates may not apply to any other law school under a similar Early Decision process. Although the Early Decision process is binding, if your application is deferred or denied, you are no longer bound by Georgetown Law’s Early Decision commitment and are encouraged to proceed with your applications at other law schools. Early Decision applicants receive the best consideration and are given priority review in our rolling admissions process.
How To Apply
Early Decision applicants may apply online via the LSAC electronic application (strongly preferred) or by submitting a paper application. Please be aware that LSAC needs time to process materials once received at their offices, so applicants should send their material to LSAC well in advance of application deadlines.
Georgetown Law is not currently accepting Early Decision applications for Fall 2014 admission. We will begin accepting applications for Fall 2014 admission on September 10, 2013. Please check back for the Fall 2014 Early Decision application. For your reference, the Fall 2013 Early Decision Application is available here.
Thank you again for your interest in Georgetown Law. We look forward to receiving your application!
