How do I apply? Do you have an online application? You may apply via paper application or electronic application. Electronic applications are encouraged as those LSDAS requests can be made faster and typically ensures faster completion. Go to select Prospective Students, Apply Online, Apply Online JD. 15. What are the application requirements? Application, Personal statement and LSDAS report (which should include LSAT, at least one letter of recommendation and undergraduate transcripts) 16. What does Hofstra look for in a personal statement? The Admissions Committee will be looking for the ability to write clearly and concisely. Write about matters that are important to you but at the same time make room to tell us about who you are, where you are from, what if any accomplishments you have achieved, or what if any adversities you have overcome. Hofstra Law School requires no more than 500 words for the personal statement; make sure you submit a statement that is written well and succinct. 17. What is the application fee? $ Do you ever waive the application fee? Yes. If you apply electronically, go to select Prospective Students, Apply Online, Apply Online JD or go to LSACD on the Web. 19. Who should write my letters of recommendation? The authors should be people who know you well and can make insightful comments about your academic abilities and perhaps how that will translate to the law school environment. It does not have to be a former professor or college advisor. Your recommender can be a mentor, supervisor, associate or someone from academia. 20. When is the best time to apply? October December 21. Do I have to register with LSDAS to apply? Yes.

3 22. How important is the LSAT? Scores (LSAT or GPA) are not THE determining factor for admissions. All aspects of the application are considered writing ability, academic ability, recommendations, leadership, advanced degrees, work experience, etc. 23. If I have multiple LSAT scores, will Hofstra take the higher score? Or do you take the average? LSAT scores are averaged unless the higher score is a considerable improvement (7-10 pts or more). 24. If my LSAT falls outside the 25th-75th range but my GPA is strong, will I be accepted? Scores (LSAT or GPA) are not THE determining factor for admissions. All aspects of the application are considered writing ability, academic ability, recommendations, leadership, advanced degrees, work experience, etc. 25. I have a foreign law degree (LL.B.); do I have to take the LSAT? If you are interested in the JD program, YES. If you are looking to take the bar exam then the LL.M. degree in American Legal studies may be a better option, and the LSAT is not required. 26. I am taking the LSAT again, should I wait to submit my application until I take the next test? It is to your advantage to submit your application early so we may begin processing it. Once your scores are received and the file is complete it will go straight to committee. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis. 27. My undergraduate work is from a foreign institution, will my GPA count? Yes. You must have your GPA evaluated by a third party translation service, such as World Education Service (WES). 28.

Greene Scholarship all involve a separate application, personal statement, official undergraduate transcripts and letters of recommendation. 32. I have previously applied, what is the process to be reconsidered? The $60 application fee (unless applying electronically) and an updated application form are required.
