Timing of Admissions Decisions
UF Law reviews files on a rolling basis. Applicants could be notified of a decision as early as October, with notifications continuing through early August. Candidates are encouraged to submit the application as soon as possible. Applying early will place applicants in the best possible position for admission and scholarship consideration.
The Wait List Process
In order to ensure that we enroll the target number of students in the entering class, the Office of Admissions creates a “wait list” of candidates each year. Candidates on the wait list are those that UF Law feels are competitive for a possible later vacancy in the entering class. These candidates will be considered for seats that may be available in the class after the deposit deadline, or seats which may become available before the first day of Orientation.
For more information, please read our Wait List FAQs.
Appealing an Admissions Decision
To appeal the decision to deny admission to the College of Law, an applicant must send a written appeal to firstname.lastname@example.org within ten (10) business days of receipt of the admissions decision. The applicant’s full name and “Appeal of Admission Decision” must be in the subject line of the email. The appeal must provide new and compelling material information that was not available to the applicant at the time of the initial admissions decision. New grades, additional activities and honors, and appeals by someone other than the applicant are never considered.
The final decision will be communicated to the applicant by reply email within ten (10) business days of receipt of the appeal. The decision on petition for reconsideration is final and is not subject to further appeal.
