Must I register for the Credential Assembly Service (CAS)?
Yes. All ABA-accredited law schools will require you to register with CAS.
What is the minimum score I must get to be eligible for admission?
Georgetown Law does not use numerical cutoffs in admissions decisions.
How are multiple LSAT scores addressed?
Georgetown Law requires only one LSAT score to apply to the J.D. program. Additional LSAT scores will be accepted. If you would like the Committee to consider additional LSAT scores before rendering a decision, you should complete the "hold request" section of the application. If you have already submitted your application, you are welcome to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that the Committee hold your application until additional LSAT score(s) are received.
For reporting purposes, Georgetown Law adheres to the ABA policy of reporting the higher LSAT score. For evaluation purposes, the Georgetown Admissions Committee typically considers the highest LSAT score. Georgetown may consider an average of scores if you have taken the LSAT more than two times. Please address any mitigating circumstances you feel the Admissions Committee should consider in your application materials.
May I apply if I plan on taking the December or February LSAT?
Yes. Due to our rolling admissions process, however, we strongly encourage you to take the LSAT by the September test date if you plan to apply. Although we will accept the December and February LSAT, taking an earlier exam is strongly encouraged.
What is the oldest score that you will accept?
We accept LSAT scores that are five years old. For Fall 2016 applicants, candidates must have taken the LSAT on or after June 2011.
