Accelerated Program

Q: What is the 2 1/2 year Accelerated Program?

A: Pace Law s Accelerated Program allows students to begin law school in the spring or fall semester and graduate within two and a half years, instead of the traditional three year full-time curriculum.

Q: How does the program work?

A: Spring Entry: Students who begin their studies in the spring semester complete their first year during the spring and summer with two consecutive 13-week sessions. These students accelerate and join their second-year classmates in the fall, completing the J.D. program in two and a half years.

Q: How do I apply for the Accelerated Program?

A: Interested candidates can apply online for the spring or fall entering class at www.lsac.org.

Q: When is the deadline for applying, and when can I expect to hear an answer?

A: While there is no final deadline as we work on rolling admissions, the priority application deadline for spring entry is November 15th. Decisions typically take 2-3 weeks after completion of your application.

Q: If I enter in the spring semester, will I be at a disadvantage from my peers who are enrolled in the traditional full-time three year program?

A: No. Students entering in the spring accelerated program will be fully integrated into law school life and have access to all the same services and activities available to first-year fall start students, including financial aid, career services, student groups and law review. For spring accelerated students interested in law review, there will be a separate write-on competition after the final exam of the summer session.

Q: What are the median numbers for the LSAT and GPA?

A: Admission into the 2 1/2 Year Accelerated Program is just as competitive as fall admissions. For the 2017 admit pool, the median LSAT was a 152 and the median GPA was 3.3.

Q: What is the latest LSAT score that will be considered?

A: Applicants should take the LSAT exam by September for spring admission. We will consider December LSAT scores on a case-by-case basis. December test-takers must forward a copy of their LSAT score email from LSAC directly to the Office of Admissions at [email protected] for consideration. Pace operates on a rolling admission program, meaning students may still apply and be accepted for enrollment following the November 15 suggested deadline. Decisions typically take 2-3 weeks after completion of your application. Applicants interested in fall admission should take the LSAT by the June exam.

Q: When does this program start in spring 2018?

A: Classes begin the second week of January 2018.
