The Georgetown University Law Center announced Wednesday afternoon that it will discontinue its Early Assurance Program. The decision is effective immediately and the program, which was established over 25 years ago, is no longer accepting applications.

The program allowed university juniors interested in law school to apply to the Law Center beginning in February and receive a response by the end of the spring semester. Applicants were exempt from taking the LSAT and registering with the Credential Assembly Service, a portal that assembles transcripts, test scores and letters of recommendation.

Admitted students were able to matriculate at the Law Center in the fall semester after completing their undergraduate degrees. Acceptance was non-binding. According to the GULC website, competitive applicants typically had at least a 3.8 cumulative GPA. The most recent statistics for the class entering 2013 indicate that 21 of the 52 Georgetown applicants were admitted, or 40 percent.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
