Should I Appeal My Admission Decision?

Some information to consider

  • Most universities do not set aside spaces to be filled through the appeal process. The university has already made admission offers to the maximum number of students they believe will yield their enrollment target
  • A tiny percent of admissions' decisions are changed through the appeal process, so it is definitely a long-shot, not a sure thing
  • If you feel that you need to submit an appeal so that you know you have tried everything within your power to be admitted, then go for it.
  • There is no real downside to submitting an appeal (other than the time investment) because if your appeal is denied you are in the same position
  • Make sure and follow the university's instructions for submitting the appeal and meet the appeal deadline.

UC Campuses define the basis of a legitimate appeal as the presence of new or compelling information that provides sufficient grounds for a review.

Examples of new and/or compelling information include

a)  Courses in progress or completed that are required for eligibility
b)  GPA has significantly increased from the last communication
c)  Additional number of units have been completed
d)  Course cancellation due to budget cuts
e)  Incomplete or inaccurate information on the application. 

Plan B

While you are waiting to hear if your appeal has been approved make sure you have secured other options. If you have been admitted to other universities, accept an offer of admission so you will be able to transfer to a four-year university.
