If you are applying as a first-year JD student, you are required to complete the on-line application hosted on the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) website. This same application may be used to apply for our early commitment option (ECO). More information about ECO is included on the application and in our online FAQs. To apply, use our online application. Applicants who have taken the GRE can log in to their ETS account and select the Indiana University Maurer School of Law as a recipient of GRE results using the ETS IU code: 4703.
Applicants electing to take the GRE must complete the Law School’s online application and submit all supporting documents using the LSAC Credential Assembly Service.
Addendum: If you believe the admissions committee would benefit from an explanation about part of your application, you should submit an addendum. This optional essay will usually explain problems with, or unusual aspects of, your application. You may also submit an addendum describing any significant adversity you have experienced which may have limited your educational opportunities or negatively affected your academic performance.
Financial Aid: All admitted applicants are automatically considered for merit awards; no separate application is required. If you wish to subsidize your legal education using federal loans, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), which can be found at studentaid.gov. The Federal School Code for Indiana University Bloomington is 001809.
