3+3 Dual Admission Law Program

The 3+3 Dual Admission in Law Program is a partnership between John Carroll University and Case Western Reserve University School of Law wherein a student obtains a bachelor’s degree from John Carroll University followed by the Juris Doctor degree from Case Western Reserve University in six years. The 3+3 Program is a non-traditional path that saves the student a total of one year in studies and expenses.

There are two ways through which a student may gain entrance into the 3+3 Program:

  1. Incoming freshmen who meet the program’s criteria are welcome to apply via the JCU Gateway, and
  2. all juniors in their fall semester who meet the program’s criteria may apply directly with CWRU School of Law.

For additional information, please contact the Sociology Department chair. 

3+3 Program Criteria

To meet the 3+3 Program’s criteria upon admission to John Carroll, students must have a high school GPA of 3.4 or above and score in the top 70th percentile on standardized college entrance exams (25 ACT; 1100 SAT Critical Reading+Math). To maintain dual-admission status, students must cultivate a John Carroll GPA of 3.4 or above by their fourth semester and score in the top 70th percentile on the LSAT. 

Junior Students

Junior students must also have a John Carroll GPA of 3.4 or above and an LSAT score in the top 70th percentile. Please note that students who apply as freshmen are not obligated to remain in the program, whereas junior year applications are binding to the student.
