Wake Forest University School of Law values all components of the application as a part of a holistic review. We encourage you to thoughtfully consider how each component will convey to the Admissions Committee your qualifications for law school and potential for success. In most cases, there is no single component that individually determines the final decision.
Although the application review process begins in the fall, we will release our first decisions on or about February 1, 2019. All applications submitted by March 1 and complete by April 1, 2019 will receive a decision no later than May 1, 2019.
All deposits are non-refundable.
