How Files Are Evaluated

The Admissions Committee takes into consideration a number of factors in evaluating whether a candidate would be suitable for admission. These factors include whether the person is likely to succeed at Georgetown, would benefit from a legal education here, and could contribute to the Georgetown legal community.

In making such determinations, the Committee focuses on a number of criteria and does not use numerical cut-offs. In addition to examining the applicant's test score(s) and academic record, the Committee also considers the personal statement, letters of recommendations/evaluations, choice of major, nature and difficulty of course selection, extracurricular activities, graduate work, contributions to the community and professional experience.

In addition to evaluating the application requirements, the Admissions Committee may also consider feedback from an applicant's invitational alumni interview or invitational group interview in determining whether a candidate would be suitable for admission.
