Meet with the Admissions Staff
You will find that many of your questions are answered by reviewing the Admissions Process Information and Frequently Asked Questions sections of the website. After you carefully review the information on the website, if you still have questions that were not addressed by your review of the material, please plan register, and drop in during one of the virtual office hours sessions with your specific questions.
If you would like to set up an appointment, please utilize the online appointment system. Admissions counselors are available via email, telephonically, through video conferencing and in-person. Please be advised, UHLC does not offer interviews or evaluative meetings with members of the Admissions Committee. Applicants who have concerns that they wish to bring to the attention of the Admissions Committee should address those concerns in a written addendum to their application. The addendum can be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you applied to the JD program and were not admitted, you may participate in a reapplicant informational webinar via Zoom that will take place on August 29, 2024. Fall 2024 applicants may register and participate in this session only. Admission is highly competitive, and we take a holistic approach to application review. There is a myriad of factors that are considered. There is no one reason why someone is accepted, as such, there is no one reason why someone is denied admission. At no time, will applicants receive specific information about why they were denied admission. This session is intended to generally assist applicants in strengthening their future application should they chose to reapply. This session is a onetime event and will not be recorded. Reapplicant counseling for the 2023 cycle has ended.
