How do I apply to LEOP? In the UC Hastings application, answer YES on question #6 in section 1 and answer a set of additional LEOP specific questions.
How long should each answer be? While we do not have a set minimum or maximum of the length of your response, we advise each applicant to answer each question to the best of their ability and as a thoroughly as possible. Generally, two to four paragraphs per question will suffice. Not every question is going to apply to every LEOP applicant.
What if a question does not apply to me, do I still need to answer it? If a question does not apply to you, write “N/A” and move on to the next question.
Do I need to write an additional LEOP Statement? LEOP applicants are strongly encouraged to submit an additional personal statement in which they identify and describe in detail the challenges and obstacles that they have faced and the impact these challenges may have had on their academic preparation. Applicants should include specific information on what they have done to meet and/or overcome these challenges.
What if my application is reviewed under LEOP and deemed LEOP ineligible? In cases where an applicant is determined to be LEOP ineligible, the application is then reviewed under the general application review process with the same consideration as all other general applicants.
