*Application Deadlines

Texas A&M School of Law accepts applications beginning in September of each year. Applications are not considered until the Admissions Office receives each of the required items, as well as a complete LSAC Credential Assembly Service report. Once an application is complete, it will be designated “in review” and presented to the admissions committee for evaluation.

Applicants are encouraged to submit their applications early in the admissions cycle. While the final deadline is May 31, 2022, the Law School will probably reach its capacity before that date. Once capacity is reached, the committee will continue to evaluate applications through the published deadline; however, the chances of gaining admission or a scholarship offer are greatly diminished.

Application Status and Communications

Applicants will receive an email confirming the receipt of their application and providing them with a username and password to access the online status checker. It can take between 5-10 business days to process the application and issue a status update. Applicants should use the Online Status Checker to monitor the status of their application. It is the applicants’ responsibility to ensure their file is complete by timely submitting the required items.

Correspondence is sent to applicants using the email address provided in the admissions application. Be sure to add the Admissions Office email address to your safe sender list while regularly checking your junk mail folder to avoid missing critical communications. Applicants changing their email address at any time during the application processing period must notify the Admissions Office at law-admissions@law.tamu.edu.

Admissions Decisions

Texas A&M School of Law evaluates applications on a rolling basis. Generally, the admissions committee will begin making decisions in mid-October and will continue to give careful consideration to all candidates throughout the admissions cycle.

Applicants may receive the following admissions decisions:

Admit – Successful applicants will receive their letter of acceptance and an admissions packet with instructions on securing their seat in the entering class. 

Deferred Consideration – After conducting its initial evaluation, the admissions committee may elect to defer its final decision to a later date. The application remains active, and the applicant is not required to take any additional action.     

Waitlist – Applicants are placed on the waitlist when the admissions committee has a strong interest in them but cannot make a formal offer at that time – though it may be able to do so in the future. Applicants that wish to remain on the waitlist will submit a letter of continued interest.          

Deny – Unfortunately, the limited enrollment capacity prohibits the Law School from extending offers to many applicants. Admission decisions are final absent a substantial change to the applicant’s original application.

Seat Deposits

Applicants admitted to Texas A&M School of Law must pay a non-refundable deposit to reserve their seat in the entering class. The admissions packet includes an administrative guide outlining the seat deposit deadline(s). Admitted students are responsible for ensuring that they pay their deposit(s) by the stated deadline(s); otherwise, they will forfeit their seat in the entering class. Upon enrollment, the seat deposit will be credited toward the student’s first-semester tuition and fees.
