Wait List FAQs
Q. What is the Wait List?
In order to ensure that we enroll the target number of students in the entering class, the Admissions Committee creates a “wait list” of candidates. Candidates on the wait list are those that the Committee feels may be competitive for a possible later vacancy in the entering class. These candidates will be considered for seats in the class that may be available after the deposit deadline, or seats which may become available before the first day of Orientation, Monday, August 13.
The Committee believes, given your credentials, you would be successful at UF Law should a position within the class become available. For those candidates offered admission, the deposit deadline is May 15th. Soon after that date, the Committee will have a better idea of the number of students who have chosen to enroll at UF Law and whether we have any vacancies in the class. At that time, if it is determined that there is space available, the Committee will begin to
re-review the files of those candidates who have been waitlisted.

Letters of continued interest are also very helpful to the Committee as it re-reviews files of those candidates who have strongly indicated they would like to enroll at UF Law should space become available. Letters of continued interest will be accepted via postal mail or as an email attachment ( email@example.com). Additional letters of recommendation, updated admissions statements, etc. are not required or necessary.
**And of course, you should submit your Wait List Confirmation form as soon as possible and before May 10 so that we may add you to the active wait list.**
