I got in this year under ib&m. 157 LSAT, 3.4 gpa. They dont have an average cut off but I’d suggest still trying to be as close to the regular category averages as possible.

Thanks for the answer, is that on the 4.33 gpa scale?

4.30 scale. If you have any other questions feel free to ask. I had tons when I was applying and found it hard to find anyone who really knew anything about IB&M.

Sweet thank you, how was the process for you? Did you have to go to an interview? Were you accepted during the spring?

I assume you are aware of the qualifications to be chosen under the category. If not I suggest you look into that asap to make sure you have a shot!

I found the process pretty simple. I can't really remember specifics about the application process, but I think you just indicate that you are applying under IB&M on your DalOnline application, but also remember to select the regular applicant section as well since you may just get accepted under that if you don't qualify for IB&M or whatever.  IB&M doesn't do rolling applications as they want to assess all the applicants before offering interviews, so don't stress about submitting your application super early.  IB&M considers your personal statement a lot more than the regular category so make sure you put a solid effort into making it good. 

I got my interview offer around the end of March, I believe they called me about it. I had the interview at the start of April, about a week after the call. The interview was pretty relaxed in my opinion, so if you do get an interview don't stress - it's nothing too crazy. I heard back about acceptance about a week after the interview. 

Not sure if you know this but if you get accepted under IB&M you have to do a pre-law course in May, as long as you are available to take it. It was an awesome course. I found it really helped ease my nerves about starting law as I felt I was already familiar with what was expected in terms of readings and stuff like that. You get to meet some of your profs and upper years, so starting in September you already have some familiar faces to talk to. I made a lot of my closest friends through IB&M. Its a super supportive program, all of the upper years are super nice and everyone helps each other as much as they can. If you do get in you'll love it.
