Hofstra Student Profile


Admission to Hofstra is selective. From a large and talented applicant pool, we have enough space in our first-year class to offer admission to only 62% of those who apply. Most students offered admission to Hofstra have completed a rigorous college preparatory curriculum in high school with a solid average. Standardized tests are also part of our review, if the student chooses to submit them. The Admissions Committee carefully reviews students' letters of recommendation, extracurricular activities, and essay, as well.

It is the goal of Hofstra University - a selective, midsize, private, coed institution - to enroll a first-year and transfer class of students from diverse backgrounds and locations, with varied interests and talents. Applications are accepted for fall and spring admission. Applicants must submit the application, a $70 application fee, high school transcript, SAT or ACT scores (if applicable), the essay, and a guidance counselor's recommendation. Hofstra accepts applications via mail or online and also accepts the Common Application.

The Admission Committee reviews each application individually to assess academic achievement, curricular rigor, leadership potential, depth of extracurricular activities, standardized test scores (if applicable), and overall interest in attending Hofstra University. The application process provides an opportunity to share information that may not be apparent on a transcript or through test scores. Questions about the application process should be directed to the Undergraduate Admission Office in Bernon Hall.

Hofstra University


Hofstra University

Hofstra University is a diverse, dynamic community where you can pursue your passions, with a greater purpose. Our classes are small, and our programs are tailored to empower students to seek, shape, and discover their own educational and career path.

Live, work, and play on a suburban campus with landscaped quads and ivy-covered buildings that’s less than an hour by train from New York City, with its countless cultural, recreational, and internship opportunities.

Build leadership skills through varied clubs, organizations, and service projects. Our students log 100,000 volunteer hours every year, and Hofstra has been recognized by the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll for seven consecutive years.

Hofstra University is internationally ranked by U.S. News & World Report, The Princeton Review, and PayScale College ROI and Salary Reports. We are the only university chosen to host three consecutive U.S. presidential debates (2008, 2012, and 2016) and one of only three universities in the New York metropolitan area with colleges of engineering, medicine, and law.

Our more than 10,000 students come from 51 states and territories and 88 countries, but they share an entrepreneurial spirit, a curiosity about the world, and a desire to make a difference.

Many of the first-year clusters participate in the living-learning communities. And most seminars and clusters involve relevant, faculty-accompanied activities in New York City, such as visits to government offices for students involved in political clusters, trips to museums and laboratories for science seminars, and theatre performances for dance and drama clusters.

About this Report

This report was released in spring 2019.


References to the lowest, median, and highest GPA and LSAT scores reflect those of the 25th, 50th, and 75th percentile, respectively, among those applicants granted admission who enrolled as full-time students in fall 2018.

Acceptance Rates

The acceptance rate is that of applicants granted admission as full-time students for classes commencing in fall 2018. The acceptance rate of the applicants does not reflect actual enrollment rates, a subset figure.

Student-to-Faculty Ratios

The student-to-faculty ratio shows the number of students for that class per faculty member. This ratio reflects the applicants granted admission who enrolled as full-time students in fall 2018.

Bar Passage Rates

The bar passage rates reflect those among first-time test takers for the winter and summer 2017 administrations of the bar examinations. The state noted is that in which the greatest number of the law school's graduates took the bar exam for the reported period.

Employment Rates

The employment rates shown are those of the 2017 full-time graduates at the time of graduation and ten months after graduation.

Law Library Volumes

The data indicate the number of print and microform volumes, as well as volume equivalents.

Gender, Race & Ethnicity

The data shown indicate the percentage of the faculty that are male and female, respectively, and the percentage of the faculty and students that are racial or ethnic minority (Hispanics of any race, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander, multiracial, non-resident alien, or unknown race).


The salary statistics are those of full-time, long-term employed law graduates for the class of 2017 at the time of graduation and within ten months after graduation (approximately spring 2018 ), as self-reported by the graduates.

The salaries indicated for “Median Salary Private” reflect those salaries of the 50th percentile, among those graduates working in private practice as law firm associates. The salaries indicated for “Median Salary Public” reflect those salaries of the 50th percentile, among those graduates working in government jobs or judicial clerkships at the federal or state level.

In determining median salaries, jobs classified as “JD advantage” have been excluded (i.e., positions in which the employer requires a JD or considers it an advantage to hold such a degree, but in which admission to the bar is not required).

Report Title

The rationale behind entitling this report as the “2020” report is that our  2020 Law School Rankings report and  2020 Law School Profiles are of considerable interest to prospective law school applicants who seek to enroll in classes commencing in fall 2020. At the time of our publication of this report in spring 2019, these employment statistics reflected the most current data available.

Source: The data have been compiled from a variety of public sources, including data released by the law schools and from the bar examiner offices in each jurisdiction.

Next Release: Our 2021 report is slated for publication in spring 2020.

Hofstra University Requirements for Admission

What are Hofstra University's admission requirements? While there are a lot of pieces that go into a college application, you should focus on only a few critical things:

  • GPA requirements
  • Testing requirements, including SAT and ACT requirements
  • Application requirements

In this guide we'll cover what you need to get into Hofstra University and build a strong application.

School location: Hempstead, NY

Admissions Rate: 68.5%

If you want to get in, the first thing to look at is the acceptance rate. This tells you how competitive the school is and how serious their requirements are.

The acceptance rate at Hofstra University is 68.5%. For every 100 applicants, 69 are admitted.

image description

This means the school is moderately selective. The school expects you to meet their requirements for GPA and SAT/ACT scores, but they're more flexible than other schools. If you exceed their requirements, you have an excellent chance of getting in. But if you don't, you might be one of the unlucky minority that gets a rejection letter.

Hofstra University GPA Requirements

Many schools specify a minimum GPA requirement, but this is often just the bare minimum to submit an application without immediately getting rejected.

The GPA requirement that really matters is the GPA you need for a real chance of getting in. For this, we look at the school's average GPA for its current students.

Average GPA: 3.67

The average GPA at Hofstra University is 3.67.

image description

(Most schools use a weighted GPA out of 4.0, though some report an unweighted GPA.

With a GPA of 3.67, Hofstra University requires you to be above average in your high school class. You'll need at least a mix of A's and B's, with more A's than B's. You can compensate for a lower GPA with harder classes, like AP or IB classes. This will show that you're able to handle more difficult academics than the average high school student.

If you're currently a junior or senior, your GPA is hard to change in time for college applications. If your GPA is at or below the school average of 3.67, you'll need a higher SAT or ACT score to compensate. This will help you compete effectively against other applicants who have higher GPAs than you.

SAT and ACT Requirements

Each school has different requirements for standardized testing. Most schools require the SAT or ACT, and many also require SAT subject tests.

Hofstra University has indicated that the SAT or ACT is required for some applicants. This can mean a few things:

  • The SAT or ACT is optional, but recommended by the school to improve your application chances.
  • You might be able to get admitted with through your GPA or class ranking alone.
  • Only specific departments at the school require the SAT or ACT.
If you're applying to this and other schools, it's safest to take the SAT or ACT. This will maximize your chance of getting into the best school possible, especially since most other students will be submitting their scores.

Hofstra University SAT Requirements

Many schools say they have no SAT score cutoff, but the truth is that there is a hidden SAT requirement. This is based on the school's average score.

Average SAT: 1250

The average SAT score composite at Hofstra University is a 1250 on the 1600 SAT scale.

This score makes Hofstra University Competitive for SAT test scores.

image description

Hofstra University SAT Score Analysis (New 1600 SAT)

The 25th percentile New SAT score is 1160, and the 75th percentile New SAT score is 1340. In other words, a 1160 on the New SAT places you below average, while a 1340 will move you up to above average.

Here's the breakdown of new SAT scores by section:

SectionAverage25th Percentile75th Percentile
Reading + Writing620580660

SAT Score Choice Policy

The Score Choice policy at your school is an important part of your testing strategy.

Hofstra University has the Score Choice policy of "Highest Section."

This is also known as "superscoring." This means that you can choose which SAT tests you want to send to the school. Of all the scores they receive, your application readers will consider your highest section scores across all SAT test dates you submit.

Click below to learn more about how superscoring critically affects your test strategy.

How does superscoring change your test strategy? (Click to Learn)

For example, say you submit the following 3 test scores:

Test 17003001000
Test 23007001000
Test 3300300600

Even though the highest total you scored on any one test date was 1000, Hofstra University will take your highest section score from all your test dates, then combine them to form your Superscore. You can raise your composite score from 1000 to 1400 in this example.

This is important for your testing strategy. Because you can choose which tests to send in, and Hofstra University forms your Superscore, you can take the SAT as many times as you want, then submit only the tests that give you the highest Superscore. Your application readers will only see that one score.

Therefore, if your SAT superscore is currently below a 1250, we strongly recommend that you consider prepping for the SAT and retaking it. You have a very good chance of raising your score, which will significantly boost your chances of getting in.

Even better, because of the Superscore, you can focus all your energy on a single section at a time. If your Reading score is lower than your other sections, prep only for the Reading section, then take the SAT. Then focus on Math for the next test, and so on. This will give you the highest Superscore possible.

Hofstra University ACT Requirements

Just like for the SAT, Hofstra University likely doesn't have a hard ACT cutoff, but if you score too low, your application will get tossed in the trash.

Average ACT: 28

The average ACT score at Hofstra University is 28. This score makes Hofstra University Moderately Competitive for ACT scores.

image description

The 25th percentile ACT score is 25, and the 75th percentile ACT score is 30.

Even though Hofstra University likely says they have no minimum ACT requirement, if you apply with a 25 or below, you'll have a harder time getting in, unless you have something else impressive in your application.

ACT Score Sending Policy

If you're taking the ACT as opposed to the SAT, you have a huge advantage in how you send scores, and this dramatically affects your testing strategy.

Here it is: when you send ACT scores to colleges, you have absolute control over which tests you send. You could take 10 tests, and only send your highest one. This is unlike the SAT, where many schools require you to send all your tests ever taken.

This means that you have more chances than you think to improve your ACT score. To try to aim for the school's ACT requirement of 28 and above, you should try to take the ACT as many times as you can. When you have the final score that you're happy with, you can then send only that score to all your schools.

ACT Superscore Policy

By and large, most colleges do not superscore the ACT. (Superscore means that the school takes your best section scores from all the test dates you submit, and then combines them into the best possible composite score). Thus, most schools will just take your highest ACT score from a single sitting.

We weren't able to find the school's exact ACT policy, which most likely means that it does not Superscore. Regardless, you can choose your single best ACT score to send in to Hofstra University, so you should prep until you reach our recommended target ACT score of 28.

SAT/ACT Writing Section Requirements

Both the SAT and ACT have an optional essay section.

Hofstra University considers the SAT Essay/ACT Writing section optional and may not include it as part of their admissions consideration. You don't need to worry too much about Writing for this school, but other schools you're applying to may require it.

SAT Subject Test Requirements

Schools vary in their SAT subject test requirements. Typically, selective schools tend to require them, while most schools in the country do not.

Hofstra University has indicated that SAT subject tests are recommended. Typically this means that SAT subject tests are not required, but submitting them can showcase particular strengths. For example, if you're applying to an engineering school, submitting science and math SAT subject tests will boost your application.

Typically, your SAT/ACT and GPA are far more heavily weighed than your SAT Subject Tests. If you have the choice between improving your SAT/ACT score or your SAT Subject Test scores, definitely choose to improve your SAT/ACT score.

Final Admissions Verdict

image description

Because this school is moderately selective, strong academic performance will almost guarantee you admission. Scoring a 1340 SAT or a 30 ACT or above will nearly guarantee you admission. Because the school admits 68.5% of all applicants, being far above average raises the admission rate for you to nearly 100%.

If you can achieve a high SAT/ACT score, the rest of your application essentially doesn't matter. You still need to meet the rest of the application requirements, and your GPA shouldn't be too far off from the school average of 3.67. But you won't need dazzling extracurriculars and breathtaking letters of recommendation to get in. You can get in based on the merits of your score alone.

But if your score is a 1160 SAT or a 25 ACT and below, you have a good chance of being one of the unlucky few to be rejected.
