Admission Requirements

All MJ applicants are required to have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree from an accredited U.S. college or university, or the foreign equivalent from a university authorized to confer such a degree by the country in which it is located.

MJ applicants are not required to take and/or submit scores from standardized admissions tests such as the GRE, GMAT, MCAT or LSAT. However, MJ applicants are welcome to submit scores received within the last five (5) years in support of their application for admission.

Submit the following application materials:

  • Completed application (required)
  • A personal statement not exceeding two pages (required)
  • Official undergraduate and graduate transcripts for all degrees received (required)
  • A current resume (required - should not exceed two pages)
