Early Decision Program

If you can't picture yourself anywhere other than USC Gould and the idea of having your law school decision making process wrapped up before the holiday season is appealing, then the early decision program could be the right option for you.

Finding the right fit is crucial when it comes time to apply for law school. At USC Gould, we know applicants have several options pertaining to binding decision programs. When you are spending three years of your life living, working, and studying with fellow students that you will one day call colleagues, you want to be sure that you fully research all aspects of the law school program you choose. Academic program selection, geographic location, and employment statistics, are the major topics to research, but also take the social atmosphere into consideration as well. USC Gould is a small law school on a large and vibrant campus, and the environment is both collaborative and supportive. If after doing your research, you make the decision to apply to our Binding Early Decision Program, and are admitted, you must be prepared to withdraw all other offers and enroll.

We know the next three years will be filled with exciting and challenging experiences! There's no better way to get to know us than by doing it in person, so if you are in the area, we encourage you to schedule a tour and/or a class visit. We also offer Information Sessions in the fall which will give you a better understanding of who we are. The sessions include perspectives from staff, faculty, and current students.

We also encourage you to browse our website to see where your interests and passions may be fulfilled. From specialized clinics and centers, to fantastic study-abroad program opportunities, you will learn the hands-on practical skills training from world-class faculty that will serve you well wherever your future career may take you.
