Apply for Early Decision

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.

Application decisions will be released on a rolling basis throughout the process with all application decisions being released on or before November 22, 2019.
