After Graduation

More than 750 Holy Cross graduates will matriculate to ABA-accredited law schools in each decade. As a result, a large percentage of our alumni are lawyers.

Students can apply to law school in complete privacy, so gathering precise data is difficult. Approximately 60-70 students will matriculate to an ABA-accredited law school in a typical year. About a third of these students will attend immediately after graduating from Holy Cross, the balance being made up of alumni.
