UMKC’s desire to interview people before admitting them says a lot about how we treat our students. Every member of the faculty, administration, and staff believes in our goal to make the law school a genuine community with real, personal connections to every student.
We are one of only a few law schools in the country that offers interviews as part of the admissions process. We conduct a personal interview with every applicant before an offer of admission is made. We encourage in-person interviews to allow applicants to visit the school, sit in on a class, and get a tour of the building from one of our student emissaries. The personal interview process allows applicants to make a better-informed judgment about UMKC and whether we are the right fit. We are happy to conduct interviews by phone or Skype as well.
Interviews are by invitation and not by request, and we do not guarantee that all applicants will receive an interview. The Admissions staff will contact applicants on an individual basis to schedule an interview appointment.
