Massachusetts School of Law at Andover is unique because it does not use or place value on the traditional LSAT test used by other law schools to determine a potential law student’s aptitude to succeed in law school. Instead, MSLAW uses its own personal interview and essay test to make this determination.
Specifically, MSLAW utilizes several factors to determine a potential student’s aptitude:
(1) undergraduate and/or graduate grades,
(2) employment and life experience,
(3) three letters of recommendation,
(4) a personal interview, &
(5) an essay exam that is similar to most law school exams (MSLAT).
The Admissions Committee, on a case-by-case basis, examines all of these factors before any decisions are made.
