Program Preference

Please rank your program preferences from the list below. Unless otherwise indicated, all programs are open to 2Ls and 3Ls.

You may rank up to six (6) programs maximum.  The number of programs you rank will not affect your chances of being accepted into your top choice(s). You will be matched with only one program.

Students will be selected by lottery with preference going to 3Ls.

You will receive an email from us during the first week or two of May, letting to know what program you were accepted into. For preliminary counting purposes, we will ask you to accept your spot within the week. If you confirm acceptance, it is okay to drop the program over the summer. For example, if you get on a journal you may decide not to do a clinic your 2L year. We only ask that you let us know as soon as possible once you decide not to do the clinic.
