Timing of Admissions Decisions
Applicants are notified of a decision as early as November and notifications continue through late April. The Admissions Committee uses a modified rolling admissions process. Files are reviewed in the order in which they are completed, but decisions are not necessarily made in the order in which applications are received and reviewed. With a volume of nearly 3,000 applications, the Levin College of Law uses a holistic and comparative review process, and many files are held for additional review throughout the admissions cycle.
The Levin College of Law’s Applicant Status Online (ASO) allows applicants to view their current application status, contact information, receipt of materials such as the resume, admissions statement, and letters of recommendation and provides applicants with a record of announcements from the Levin College of Law Office of Admissions.
The Wait List
For those candidates who have been offered a position on the Wait List, this means that unfortunately at this time the Admissions Committee was unable to offer you a seat in the fall 2013 entering class. The following serves as a quick reference guide and frequently asked questions list that explains our Wait List process.
Petitioning for Reconsideration
Applicants who have been denied admission can request reconsideration only in cases where the applicant has learned of significant additional information that was not available at the time of the original application. The Admissions Committee’s original decision would have been based upon all academic and non-academic information included in the original application. Information about events, such as grades or awards, occurring after the March 15th file completion deadline cannot be considered. The Committee’s decision on a petition for reconsideration is final and is not subject to further appeal.
A written request must include an explanation of the new information as well as valid reasons warranting reconsideration, and should be submitted to the Assistant Dean for Admissions, University of Florida Levin College of Law, 141 Bruton-Geer Hall, P. O. Box 117622, Gainesville, FL 32611-7622. The request should be marked “Request for Reconsideration.”
