Additional Information

The University of San Diego School of Law actively recruits and matriculates students from diverse backgrounds. While LSAT score and undergraduate GPA are major elements in the application review, nonquantitative factors such as work experience, letters of recommendation, community service, and student leadership experience can greatly impact the final decision.

The University of San Diego School of Law, our students, faculty, alumni and the San Diego legal community strive to provide support to our students from the LGBTQ community. Our student Pride Law organization and the Tom Homann LGBT Law Association provide community to our students while the USD LGBTQ Alumni Scholarship assists them financially.
