Important Dates

Your Application Procedures

Keep Track of These Dates

Early Decision — December 1
Complete applications with all required credentials received by December 1 will receive first consideration for places in the next entering class.

Regular Review — No Deadline
Applications are reviewed as they become complete. An application is considered complete when all required documents, including the candidate's Credential Assembly Service (CAS) Report and at least two faculty recommendations or evaluations, have been received by the School's Office of Admissions. Candidates are advised to consider the several weeks it will take for the CAS to process their Law School Report and other documents and incorporate this into the application timeline.  There is no regular review deadline, but applications completed by February 1 are given first consideration. Applicants who take the LSAT administered in June may still be eligible for fall admission.

Fellowship Applicants — April 1
Edward V. Sparer Public Interest Law Fellowship Program
International Business Law Fellowship Program Your fellowship application, complete with all credentials, must be received by April 1, even if you have not yet heard from the Admissions Committee regarding the status of your admission application. Review of fellowship applications begins after the April 1 deadline, and decisions are announced soon thereafter to candidates that have been accepted for admission to the Law School. Therefore, early filing of the admission application is strongly encouraged.

Admitted Student Seat Deposit – April 15
Admitted students who wish to confirm acceptance at Brooklyn Law School are required to pay an initial seat deposit of $300, as well as a nonrefundable matriculation fee of $25. The seat deposit, which reserves a place in the entering class, will be applied against tuition for the first term if the admitted student matriculates.

If an admitted student makes an initial seat deposit prior to April 15, and subsequently notifies the Office of Admissions that he or she will not be attending Brooklyn Law School, the student is entitled to a full refund of the $300 seat deposit, provided that written notification of withdrawal is postmarked, faxed, e-mailed, or hand-delivered by April 15. In the event that a withdrawal of admission occurs after April 15, the $300 seat deposit is partially refundable, in accordance with the following schedule:

Date of Withdrawal Refund

April 16 – April 29 $ 150

April 30 – May 13 $ 100

May 14 – May 27 $ 50

After May 27 No Refund

Note: The seat deposit will be refunded in full if the admitted student withdraws within five (5) business days after our receipt of payment. Beyond this grace period, the above schedule will apply irrespective of the date of the acceptance letter. Thus, if for any reason, a seat deposit is remitted after May 27 and then the admitted student withdraws before the fall semester, there will be no refund after the 5-day grace period.

Admitted Student Tuition Down Payment – June 1
Admitted students who wish to maintain a place in Brooklyn Law School’s next entering class are required to pay a tuition down payment of $600. The tuition down payment, together with the previously paid seat deposit and matriculation fee, will be credited toward tuition and fee charges for the first term if the admitted student matriculates.

If an admitted student pays the $600 tuition down payment prior to June 1, and subsequently notifies the Office of Admissions that he or she will not be attending Brooklyn Law School, the student is entitled to a full refund of the $600, provided that written notification of withdrawal is postmarked, faxed, e-mailed, or hand-delivered by June 1. In the event that a withdrawal of admission occurs after June 1, the $600 tuition down payment is partially refundable, in accordance with the following schedule:

Date of Withdrawal Refund

June 2 – June 10 $ 525

June 11 – June 19 $ 450

June 20 – June 28 $ 375

June 29 – July 7 $ 300

July 8 – July 15 $ 225

July 16 – July 23 $ 150

July 24 – July 31 $ 75

After July 31 No Refund

Note: The tuition down payment will be refunded in full if the admitted student withdraws within five (5) business days after our receipt of payment. Beyond this grace period, the above schedule will apply irrespective of the date of the acceptance letter. Thus, if for any reason, a tuition down payment is remitted after July 31 and then the admitted student withdraws before the fall semester, there will be no refund after the 5-day grace period.
