Online Application Status


Layout Builder

The Vermont Law School Admissions Office uses a paperless review and decision process. This page will provide explanations for the various status messages that you may see your file progress through. If you have any questions about the information on this page, please contact us.

Once your application is received and processed by the office (a process that may take a couple days during peak application season), you will receive an acknowledgment email. Your user name and password will be included in this email. This is how you will access the Applicant Status Portal (JD Students Only). The applicant status portal will display all current information about your application to Vermont Law School including contact information, mailings sent to you, and deposit deadlines for admitted students.
