Class Profile and Other Consumer Information

Each year, USF seeks to admit a diverse group of students who are among the most capable law students in the nation.

Diversity is a core value of the law school, and, consistent with our mission, we aim to admit students from diverse backgrounds, including men and women of differing races, ethnicities, religions, sexual orientations, and ages as well as individuals with disabilities. Diversity enables students to learn from one another, promotes a variety of perspectives, and enhances empathy and critical engagement. 

This page contains information that may be of interest to prospective students, such as the makeup of the most recent incoming class, as well as consumer information required by the American Bar Association. For additional questions, contact the Office of Admissions
