Application Procedure

Application Procedure 
 
Applicants should submit the following to the Office of Admissions: a completed and signed electronic application form; a $55 non-refundable application fee; a personal statement no more than two double-spaced pages long; and a resume.

Candidates also are required to register with the Credential Assembly Service (CAS) and to take the LSAT. It is not necessary for applicants to wait for LSAT results before beginning the application process, but an admission decision cannot be made prior to receiving all required materials, including a CAS report and LSAT score.

The School of Law requires that two letters of recommendation and no more than four letters of recommendation be sent directly to the Law School Admissions Council along with your transcripts. These letters/evaluations will be forwarded to Texas A&M as part of your CAS report. An applicant may submit up to 2 LSAC evaluations in lieu of the additional 2 LORs to achieve a total of 4 LORs/evaluations.

Information and application materials for the LSAT may be obtained by writing Law Services (www.lsac.org).
