PITTLAW Scholars

Beginning with the 2019 Admissions Cycle, the University of Pittsburgh School of Law will accept the Graduate Records Examination (GRE) in lieu of the LSAT for qualified undergraduates of the University of Pittsburgh. We will also consider GRE scores in addition to LSAT scores for those who wish to have both considered and who have taken both.

  • The option to consider GRE scores in lieu of LSAT scores is only open to applicants who have received or will receive their undergraduate degree from the University of Pittsburgh.  Qualified applicants must possess a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.5 or above through six semesters of academic work AND must have scored at least in the 85th percentile on the GRE. 
  • Our application deadline for PITTLAW Scholars is February 1st.  Applicants with an LSAT score cannot be admitted through the PITTLAW Scholars process; they will instead be considered through the regular admissions process. 
  • PITTLAW Scholar applicants must submit an application through the Law School Admission Council’s website at www.lsac.org
  • Applicants must instruct Educational Testing Service (ETS) to send Pitt Law all GRE test scores from the mandated five-year period.  The University of Pittsburgh School of Law ETS (DI) code is 4311.
  • All other parts of application process remains the same.
