How to Apply
St. Mary’s School of Law has a rolling deadline for M.Jur. program admissions. The only exception to this policy is for foreign M.Jur. applicants, who must submit a complete application package at least five weeks before the commencement of the semester in which the applicant intends to begin his/her first semester of study. This is necessary to ensure that the I-20 visa can be processed by the university’s International Student and Scholar Services office and thereafter received by the applicant in time to secure a student visa for study in the M.Jur. program.
Applicants must submit:
- Proof of a four-year undergraduate degree, either
- from an accredited college or university in the United States or
- a comparable degree from a foreign institution approved by either the government or the relevant accrediting authority of the nation where the school is located;
- Official transcripts of undergraduate studies
- A personal statement;
- Two letters of recommendation;
- A completed M.Jur. application form.
All applicants will be considered holistically and admission will be based on the applicant’s academic training, professional background, personal statement, and professional and academic references. Applicants may, but are not required, to submit official LSAT, GRE, GMAT, or MCAT score reports.
In addition to the required documents listed above, foreign M.Jur. applicants must have English test scores, TOEFL (80 for internet-based test, 213 for computer-based test 0r 550 for paper-based test) or IELTS (6.0 or above). After an interview, program directors may waive English tests with the permission of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.
