Lake Erie College partners with Duquesne for Early Admission Agreement
Lake Erie College students can now earn a degree and complete a year of law school in just three years.
Lake Erie College and the Duquesne University Law School have established an early admission agreement that will enable students to receive a bachelor’s degree from Lake Erie College after three years of undergraduate work and successful completion of the first year of law school.
“We [Lake Erie College] have increased our collaborations with other institutions of higher learning and couldn’t be more excited to align ourselves with such a prestigious institution while offering a unique opportunity to our students,” says President Michael Victor.
Dean of the Law School Donald Guter says, “We are proud to partner with Lake Erie College, an institution with which we share so many fundamental values, and we believe this effort will provide one more opportunity for students to Get In and Stand Out.”
In the first two years of operation, the program will be open to the Lake Erie College students generally including any transfer students who may be recruited to participate. However, beginning the third year of operation, the early admission program will only be available to those applicants who enter as freshmen and complete all three years of coursework at Lake Erie.
Eligibility for the early admission programs requires a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.5 over three years; completion of all undergraduate curricular major field and liberal studies requirements at Lake Erie; a minimum LSAT score in the 60th percentile and a letter of recommendation by an appointed selection committee.
Lake Erie College joins the growing list of Duquesne’s 3/3 early admission program which includes partners such as Carnegie Mellon University’s College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Gannon University, Mercyhurst College, Seton Hill University and Washington and Jefferson College.
