Application Timeline

Application Timeline

  • Apply by May 1

    The Junior Deferral Program application opens March 2, 2020. The deadline is May 1, 2020.

  • Check your application status

    From the time we receive your application, it typically takes several weeks to process required materials and to “complete” the application for submission to the Admissions Committee.

  • Application Review

    The Admissions Committee reviews applications roughly in order of completion. Each application is considered in its entirety — there are no computational methods for making decisions and no numerical cut-offs below which a candidate will not be considered. The time it takes to fully review a file will vary from case to case.

  • Interview in July

    During the application review process you may be invited to interview. These interviews will happen in July. The Admissions Office will contact you directly to setup an interview, where applicable.

  • Decisions

    Unlike the regular J.D. admissions process, this program does not operate on a rolling admissions basis. We will accept applications from the date the application opens (early March) through the application deadline (early May). All decisions will be released at the same time, typically in early August.
