Getting In

Admission Requirements and Deadlines
Students applying to the JD/MBA program must be admitted to both the Law and Management faculties. As such, a separate application to each faculty must be submitted. Students who have completed the first year of either the JD or MBA program may apply for admission to the combined JD/MBA Program by meeting the normal application and admission requirement for the other faculty.

Faculty of Law Admissions
The Faculty believes that the qualities of mind and personality necessary to satisfy its requirements are:
(a) high intelligence
(b) sound judgment
(c) the capacity and motivation for demanding intellectual effort
(d) the capacity and motivation to engage in sophisticated legal reasoning, and
(e) an understanding and sensitivity to human interaction.

As evidence of these qualities, the Faculty looks at a number of factors. These include: academic achievement; Law School Admission Test (LSAT) score; non-academic achievements; and the impact of temporary or permanent physical disabilities.

In recent years, successful regular applicants have had:
Median LSAT score: 95th percentile
Median cumulative undergraduate average ( best 3 of 4 years): 84%
Very few candidates are admitted with LSAT scores below the 85th percentile and cumulative undergraduate academic records below 78%, unless their backgrounds, other qualifications, or personal accomplishments would, in the opinion of the Admissions Committee, contribute specially and significantly to the class.

For more details, please see the Faculty of Law's Calendar or go to The official application and law calendar are available through the Ontario Law School Application Services.
