Post-Decision

I am an admitted student. Where can I find information for admitted students?
We will post the deadlines, forms, and other important information on a password-protected website for admitted students. You will receive login information if you are admitted.

I applied to the Law School and was not admitted. May I apply again?
Yes. Reapplying suggests that you are serious about studying law at our school. When you reapply, you will need to register with LSAC, pay the application fee (unless you qualify for an LSAC fee waiver), and submit a new application. The Admissions Committee will review your previous application(s) and your new application.

I applied to the Law School and was not admitted. May I appeal this decision?
No, our admissions decisions are final. We hope you will consider reapplying to our school. You may request a meeting in the summer with our Director of Admissions to discuss your application. Please email lawadm@hawaii.edu in June to set up a time to visit.

I applied to the Law School and was not admitted. May I be placed on the waitlist?
No. If you were invited to join the waitlist, this invitation would have been included in your Admissions Decision Notification Email.

I applied to the full-time JD program at the Law School and was not admitted. May I be reconsidered for the part-time JD program?
No. Applicants to both programs must meet the same admissions criteria. We will not reconsider your application within the same admissions cycle.
