Some interesting facts about University of Arizona Law School

The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law has a long-standing national reputation for educational excellence and rigor. We value diversity of thought, background, experience, and culture in every dimension of the law school experience.

In the words of our students, University of Arizona Law “defies all stereotypes” when it comes to the experience you might expect at a top-tier law school. We pride ourselves on our famously collegial community, direct access to renowned faculty, a career development office with one of the best track records in the country, and a forward-thinking mindset that continuously seeks out new opportunities for our students.

But we’re more than just a law school.

Arizona Law is part of the University of Arizona, one of the country’s top research institutions, where you’ll find people celebrating the successful launch of a UA-led NASA mission right alongside another win from the championship basketball team. UA’s programs in environmental science, astronomy, optics, and geology are among the world’s best. The Eller College of Management—next door to the law school—delivers top-ranked programs available to law students seeking careers in law and business. Arizona Law faculty and students also work with many other highly regarded programs across campus, depending on their career and research interests.

The University of Arizona and Arizona Law have a strong history of serving military veterans, providing “one-stop” assistance and additional support. International students will find a welcoming community and well-developed services such as the Center for English as a Second Language.

Beyond UA’s borders lies the metropolitan Tucson area of about one million people. We enjoy some 350 days each year of sunny weather, perfect for exploring outdoor activities and Tucson’s spectacular landscape. Here you will never run out of delicious food—Tucson was recently named a United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) World City of Gastronomy, the first city in the United States to receive the designation. And while Tucson is culturally rich, it remains the most affordable big city in the United States, so you can afford to enjoy all the city offers.

Tell us what's important to you
This is what the admissions person told me yesterday: “We are nearly done securing the first year class and do not foresee inviting more candidates off the waitlist.”
It’s possible he sent that after they had invited those folks off the WL
Yeah, that’s possible
The application deadline is 7/15 so it’ll be interesting to see what all the late applicant results are (including mine lolll)
Ha. Yes, very true
Anyone heard anything?
@UnableBreakableHamster: Did you receive any scholarship $$ at UA?
I did. I may very well end up in Tucson next fall.
Anyone know if UofA's incoming class is full?
My friend applied like two weeks ago and got waitlisted last week
are people active in here? its 7/3. deadline in less than 2 weeks, i wonder when the class will be full
It’s never technically full until the first day of classes. People withdraw up until that date if they’re accepted somewhere else (for the same reasons). The only schools that are truly full are places like Harvard, Stanford, and Yale and maybe some other high ranking schools with small classes.
That said, it is odd that UA is still adding people to their wait list. They shouldn’t be at this point
@StinkyButt: Do you think it's a good sign that they are still admitting people
@MereMushyDuck: I don’t know. Purely speculating, I’m inclined to say no if the people they’re waitlisting have good numbers relative to those of us still on the WL. But these law school admissions processes are so opaque that it might not mean anything other than they review applications on a rolling basis until their deadline
They should have a better sense of things after their 7/15 deadline, and I expect they’ll start admitting and rejecting folks that week
Your LSAT score is awesome btw. Have you applied to WashU in St. Louis?
@StinkyButt: Thank you! I studied for about a year. I haven't applied to WashU, but I have thought about it. My goal is to stay in Arizona :)
@MereMushyDuck: I got ya. With that LSAT, you should be able to get a solid tuition discount
So I spoke to the director of admissions a couple weeks before my R and he said this late in the cycle they are only giving As of Rs but then my friend got a WL two weeks later
My friend did go to UA for undergrad so maybe that has something to do with it
That’s interesting. The only thing that definitively reveals is that what the admissions director said wasn’t true, intentional or not
They shouldn’t be adding to their WL at this point, which may have been why he said it
Sorry about your R. It’s UA’s loss
Yeah, it’s okay I was below their LSAT median and applied late so I’m not that upset. Also, I guess UA has some internal scandals going on so maybe going this year wasn’t in the cards for me
Oh, I hadn't heard. UA as a whole or the law school in particular?
they do seem to be somewhat more holistic in their admissions than many other schools, at least according to the data on LSD
Massive budget shortfall caused by inept management
