The school recently announced it would admit some students without LSAT scores.

In fact, U.S. News & World Report noted that the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaii Manoa is one of the most affordable schools in the United States.

Dean Avi Soifer stated, “The generosity of our alumni, faculty and friends in providing scholarship support, and the skill of Cyrelle White, our financial aid officer, make it possible for us to stay true to the founding vision of the Law School: to provide opportunity for every qualified student we accept, no matter what that student’s financial situation might be.”
