Applicants must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Mercer Law School accepts LSAT test scores for up to 3 years.

We must receive your LSAT score and writing sample before reviewing your file.
Applicants must take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) or the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Applicants who would like to be considered based on their GRE scores should not register or sit for the LSAT. Applicants who elect to take the GRE instead of the LSAT must instruct the Educational Testing Service (ETS) to send Mercer Law School all GRE test scores from the prior five-year period. Log into ETS and select Mercer University School of Law as a recipient of GRE results (ETS code: 4809).

The personal statement provides prospective students an opportunity to share their perspectives on a number of specified topics. Please refer to the application for specific information regarding the personal statement requirement and topics to be discussed.

Foreign Educated Applicants
Foreign transcripts must be submitted through the LSAC Credential Assembly Service.

This service is included in the Credential Assembly Service fee. An International Credential Evaluation will be completed by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admission Officers, which will be incorporated into your law school report. Applicants whose native language is not English, and show undergraduate education is from outside the US, are required to submit a Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) score. If this applies to you, you must contact the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and request that your TOEFL score be send to LSAC. Your score will be included in the credential evaluation document that will be included in your law school report.
