Early Decision Program


The University of Cincinnati College of Law offers an Early Decision Program. This program was designed for applicants who have thoroughly researched their legal education options and have decided by December 1 that the University of Cincinnati College of Law is their first choice. Among the benefits of Early Decision to applicants are that the application is free (the standard application fee of $35 is waived) and they are provided with an admission decision by January 15. Those applicants for whom institutional financial aid is a prerequisite should apply instead under the regular admissions process.

Applicants who desire to participate in the Early Decision Program must complete and submit the application form and supplemental form by December 1, 2016. The supplemental form must be uploaded as an attachment to your Early Decision Application or mailed separately to the address below. In addition, students must ensure they have taken the LSAT and provided all other required documentation to LSAC's Credential Assembly Service by the December 1 deadline. Applicants will be notified of their decision by the Cincinnati Law admissions committee by January 15. When applicants are notified of their admission under the Early Decision Program, they must withdraw all other law school applications, as it is a binding process.
