The required ATAR is 99.5. Your ATAR is below that. Seems pretty obvious. Not exactly like theyre going to be like "yeah you didnt get 99.5 but we'll overlook people who had it as a preference and an ATAR of 99.45 in place of someone we're randomly going to pick who has an ATAR of 99.15"

You seem to not understand that the required ATAR is based on supply and demand and that people need an ATAR of 99.5 to get into the course because the demand for the course is so high and theres limited supply.

If you want to study law at USYD youll have to start in another course and transfer in.

I received an ATAR of 74.85, but attained WAM of 86.5 and managed to make the cut into USYD's combined law program.
If you can achieve a WAM of 80+ to go an average ATAR like mine, you'll probably be sweet.
But in saying that, be prepared to sacrifice your social life for a period of time if you want to get into law.
All the best :wavey:

May I ask what course you initially enrolled in?
