Welcome

WELCOME to AAMPLE®

At Florida Coast School of Law, we believe dreams are to be realized . . . that dedicated individuals deserve a chance . . . that success is limited only by the height of one's aspirations.

Mission Statement:

The mission of the InfiLaw Alternative Admissions Model Program for Legal Education (AAMPLE®) is to provide a path of admission to our law schools for individuals whose academic indicators may not reflect their potential to succeed in law school.

Program Goal:

To identify students who have potential to succeed in law school and to introduce all program participants to tools and skills that will help prepare them to successfully engage the first semester of law school.

Program Description:

The AAMPLE®) program provides candidates for admission with a structured opportunity to demonstrate their ability to learn key skills necessary for successful completion of their legal education.  Successful participants are eligible for admission to our J.D. program.

The program consists of two law school courses, Introduction to the 4th Amendment and Negotiable Instruments. These were selected from our regular law school curriculum and modified to provide the most accurate indication of a student's potential for law school success. The courses are taught by professors from our full-time faculty.

AAMPLE® students who  meet the established minimum grade and GPA requirements  at the end of the program will gain admission into the next entering JD class, so long as they provide the law school with an official transcript showing receipt of a bachelor's degree.  Official transcripts must be sent directly from the institutions to our Admissions Department. The official transcripts are required in addition to the copies sent to us with LSDAS reports. Students must also meet all admissions requirements.

NOTE: Students who participate in the AAMPLE® program and are unsuccessful are not eligible to apply to AAMPLE® for two (2) years. After two (2) years have passed, students are welcome to submit applications for AAMPLE.

While success in this program earns you admission to Florida Coastal School of Law as a degree candidate, the American Bar Association does not allow the school to count the grades earned in AAMPLE® courses in your law school grade point average or count AAMPLE® participation towards the 90 credits required for graduation.
  
Success in this rigorous program is by no means guaranteed, and there is no fixed percentage of students who successfully complete the program. We believe that everyone we accept into AAMPLE® has the potential to succeed if she/he has the determination to do so, can act on it, and devotes full attention to this program. There are no quotas involving admission; there are NO MAXIMUM numbers who can join Florida Coastal School of Law’s entering class. Everyone admitted to AAMPLE® has the opportunity to succeed.
 
All AAMPLE® results are final and non-appealable.  The faculty and administration will not grant any petition for admission, for any reason, until the two year time limit has expired.
