Meet Seton Hall Law School’s incoming class.

Seton Hall Law is thrilled to announce that its incoming class has the highest median scores of any class in its history. This year’s 1Ls had a median score on the LSAT of 160 (an increase of two points over last year) and a median undergraduate G.P.A. of 3.58 (an increase of two-tenths of a point). But the students who make up our tight-knit community are so much more than their test scores: they offer a wealth of academic, professional and cultural diversity that contributes to a lasting impact in the field of law. To foster that environment, we offer broadened admissions criteria with additional paths to a law degree through merit-based scholarships, full-time weekday programs and part-time weekend programs.
