Applicants to the Francis J. & Wm. Polk Carey JD/MBA Program must apply via a shared application and should submit the Carey JD/MBA Program application through Wharton’s application system, which includes the elements of the full-time MBA application plus a University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School supplement. Application instructions are available here and within the application. Applicants to the Carey JD/MBA Program must apply during Round 1 or Round 2 of the Wharton MBA application timeline. Applicants to the program will receive their response according to Wharton’s decision release timeline

Given the unique nature of the program, applicants may not, after receiving an offer of admission, decide to enroll in one school and not the other (i.e., an applicant may not choose to only attend Wharton and not the Law School, or vice versa, after a joint decision has been rendered). Applicants are encouraged to apply prior to matriculation in the Law School. However, since the first year of the three-year JD/MBA program takes place at the Law School, Law School students have the option of applying during their 1L year, during Round 1 or Round 2 of the Wharton MBA admissions timeline.
