College Admissions Appeals Process Video

College Admissions Appeals Process Video Transcript

Discover the best ways to appeal being denied to the college or university of your choice. This video describes how colleges will look for new and compelling evidence not presented in a student's original application. Some schools and education systems will also now allow letters of recommendation during this appeals process. Find out the ways to give yourself the best opportunity possible to overturn a college admissions decision.

College Admissions Appeals Process Video Overview

  1. Appeals Processes
    • If you are not accepted into your top choice school, you can appeal the decision.
    • The most important part of the appeal is that you need to present new and compelling information in your appeal letter. You cannot just redo what you have already included in your original application. There must be new and compelling information.
    • If you are trying to appeal to get into the University of California system, because recommendation letters are not part of their admissions application process, you can now send two recommendation letters with your appeal.
    • You should include official high school transcripts, two letters of recommendation, and your appeal letter all in the same envelope and send them as soon as possible after you are denied admission.
  2. Chances of Successfully Appealing Decision
    • Do not count on your appeal getting your denial reversed. UCLA, for example, states that it does not set aside space in classes for students who appeal admissions decisions as every denied application has gone through an extensive review.
    • While all appeals are reviewed on a case by case basis, the rate of decisions being reversed has historically been low.
    • There are cases, however, where the appeal is successful, such as the one where a UC student who spoke at graduation was someone who had gained admission through the appeals process.
