All applicants, including those reapplying, those taking the GRE, and applicants from institutions that do not issue grades, are required to register with the Credential Assembly Service.
A transcript from each college or university attended and listed on the registration form should be sent directly to LSAC's Credential Assembly Service in accordance with their instructions.
The LSAT or GRE must be taken no later than January 31, 2020 for students applying to the regular JD program.
Applicants to the Early Decision or Distinguished Scholars Programs must take the LSAT or GRE no later than October 31, 2019.
Applicants to the Achievement Fellowship must take the LSAT or GRE no later than November 30, 2019.
Though we anticipate that most applicants will continue to apply with an LSAT score, UCLA Law does not have a preference in the admissions process for one test over another and will evaluate all applications holistically regardless of the test taken.If you completed any post-secondary work outside the U. (including its territories) or Canada, you must use this service for the evaluation of your transcripts.The one exception to this requirement is if you completed the work through a study abroad, consortium, or exchange program sponsored by a U. or Canadian institution, and the work is clearly indicated as such on the home campus transcripts.The Credential Assembly Service (CAS) was developed to help participating schools collect and analyze data pertaining to the academic records of applicants.The law school report includes a year-by-year summary of units and grade-point averages (GPA), a cumulative GPA, LSAT score(s) (if applicable), and a copy of each transcript.Note that we will review applications as soon as they are complete and at least one LSAT writing sample has been submitted.Unfortunately, we are not able to wait to review your application if you decide to take additional writing sample tests.More time is usually required to receive international transcripts.Questions about the Credential Assembly Service can be directed to LSAC at 215.968.1001 or [email protected] may choose which test to take; however please note the following guidelines: Beginning June 3, 2019, the LSAT writing sample will not be conducted at the same time as the LSAT exam—it will be an on-demand writing exam administered online.(For full details please visit: https://org/lsat/taking-lsat/lsat-writing-faqs.) Applicants should be aware that their application cannot be transmitted to UCLA Law for evaluation without an LSAC writing sample.
