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.
Applications must be complete, with all required materials received, no later than 15 days after the application deadline. After application decisions are released beginning in or around January, decisions will continue to be released on a rolling basis throughout the remainder of the cycle.
Applicants to dual and concurrent degree programs also need to complete the secondary degree application.

Wake Forest Law is one of several schools that accept Graduate Record Examination (GRE) scores for admissions consideration. Applicants who would like to be considered based on their GRE scores should not register or sit for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT). Scores and registration information is automatically sent to Wake Forest Law for applicants who have taken an LSAT in the past or who sit for an administration during the application process. Wake Forest Law must consider any LSAT score or registration that is reported. Subsequently reported GRE scores will be invalid for the admissions process.
