Applying for Fall 2022: Application options and dates

Greetings, applicants! UF Law is pleased to announce that the application for Fall 2022 is now open.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, with the earliest decision wave expected to be announced in mid-November. Last year we received almost 3,900 applications from students in all 50 states and over 40 countries! These applicants also represented over 650 undergraduate universities and colleges. We are expecting another robust applicant pool this year, so we encourage you to file your application early to increase your chance of admission.

Apply the way that is best for you:

Regular Decision – This is our standard application, and requires the following:

  • Application – found on LSAC.org
  • Updated resume
  • Personal Statement – limit to four (4) double-spaced pages, on any topic
  • $30 application fee
  • Transcripts from all undergraduate institutions (and graduate institutions, if applicable)
  • LSAT score w/n 5 years
  • Letter(s) of Recommendation – 1 required, up to 4 accepted
  • The priority application deadline is March 15, 2022.

Binding Decision – This option is designed for competitive applicants who are certain that UF Law is their first choice. Applicants admitted under the Binding Decision option will be considered for merit scholarships but are not guaranteed a scholarship award. You should only apply through the Binding Decision option if you are willing to enroll at UF Law even if you do not receive a scholarship.  Admitted students are required to submit a binding enrollment commitment form within seven days of their offer and withdraw all pending applications to other law schools. Applicants admitted through the Binding Decision option will not have to pay the $200 non-refundable enrollment deposit. Applications submitted under this option must be complete by February 15, 2022.

Gator Scholars – Are you a UF student? This alternative admission option may be right for you. Currently enrolled students at the University of Florida may apply without taking the LSAT if they meet certain eligibility requirements. Students applying under this option must have a complete application on file by January 15, 2022.

We look forward to receiving your application! Please contact the Office of Admissions with any questions.
