Incoming Class Profile
Meet Seton Hall Law School’s incoming class.
Seton Hall Law welcomes one the strongest and most diverse One L classes in its history, with a median LSAT score of 159 and median undergraduate G.P.A. of 3.63. But the students who comprise our tight-knit community are so much more than their test scores: they offer a breadth of life experience that enlivens the classroom conversation and will lead to creative law reform. Seton Hall Law employs broad admissions criteria to achieve diversity of perspective and embraces those whose pathway to law school is unconventional. Scholarships as well as day, evening, remote, and weekend classes create opportunities for students who may not otherwise be able to access a law school education.
