College of Law > Admission & Aid > JD Admission
Admission to DePaul University College of Law is very competitive.
Last year, approximately 1,900 candidates applied for 160 seats in the full-time day program and 25 seats in the part-time evening program.
Because applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, early application is highly recommended, especially for those who desire merit scholarship and financial aid consideration.
For first-year applicants with no previous law school credit, admission is granted only for the fall semester.
