Candidates must present the results of one of the following exams (only one exam is required): GMAT, GRE, LSAT or IE Global Admissions Test (ieGat). The ieGat is comprised of questions measuring analytical, logical, verbal and numerical capacities. Given that the exam is designed to test capacities and not knowledge of specific fields, it does not require special preparation. Candidates are allowed to use a calculator for the section that tests numerical skills. The exam also includes a personality test designed to compile a psychological profile of each candidate.The IE Admissions Test should be taken in English.

The interview examines the data provided in the application in greater detail and evaluates whether the candidate's profile meets the demands of the program and add value within the class discussion and group work.
Should the Admissions Committee grant the candidate an interview upon the review of his application, he will be contacted to schedule an interview in person, whether in Madrid or in your country through one of our offices. It is recommended that the interview be conducted in person, as it is an integral part of the admissions process but in the case the candidate is based in a country where we do not have an office and he is not able to come to Madrid for the interview, we can also schedule a skype interview.
Recommendation for the interview: Come prepared, research about IE Law School, and show us you are a true IE Ambassador! This is an excellent opportunity for you to demonstrate your soft skills.

Once the interview is complete, the overall application, including the interview report, will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee , which decides whether to admit or deny admission to the candidate. The admission decision is communicated to the candidate  via email and will remind any documents or further information required by the Commitee.
Successful candidates will be provided with a contract, shortly after their decision has been communicated, which will include information about how to reserve their spot on the program and how to finalize enrollment. Candidates will work closely with our admissions team through this process.
