UF and FSU 2013 transfers

Postby Law Student 1234 » Thu Jul 11, 2013 11:46 am

Has any one heard from either UF or FSU yet? I have been "complete" at FSU since monday and went under review at UF today.

I was complete at FSU for a while, went under review on Tuesday, got accepted Wednesday. So Should be quick once you go under review...but not sure about UF's process.

Thanks. Mine is still just "complete" so I guess it should go under review soon. If you don't mind me asking, what were your stats that got you in as FSU?

I sent in my applications the last week of June and I heard from both schools within the week (which is shocking because UF usually takes their time with admission decisions). I pretty much lateral transferred so that may have had something to do with it. FSU's deadline for my response was July 17th - so I imagine they will send out the next batch of acceptances after that. UF's deadline for me was July 26th.

How did you find out those decision deadlines? I don't think I was given any dates for decision deadlines.

Sorry I meant that was my deadline for accepting my seat. I was offered a seat at both schools. Also now that I am thinking about my response - I should probably preface this. I have read threads saying that the schools send out decisions in batches. I assumed this was accurate with how it worked since I received emails from organizations with other transfers listed in the days following my acceptance.

Either way, maybe this is what you were looking for: I was complete at FSU two days before I was admitted. My file never went complete at UF. It went from missing documents to decision reached. My documents had been turned in on the checklist but they never changed the status.

Still not even under review at FSU, application has been complete since 7/8. Anyone on here think that is very odd or is that normal there?

I think it's a little odd. FSU is usually very quick at getting back with decisions. I applied last year and this year (for a transfer) and got acceptances within a week of sending in my application both times. But I hear FSU is very transfer friendly (accepted as many as 75), so maybe they are watching their numbers.

Interesting. I know they are on a rolling admission so maybe they are just taking a while longer this application cycle.

If I was you, I would contact the school - just email and find out why you are not yet under review. I did that with UF and got my decision expedited. It could just be an oversight.

I am definitely giving admissions a call tomorrow morning. Something has got to be wrong to be complete for over two weeks and still not under review especially when classes start in just about 1 month.

Hey. I applied as a transfer to FSU as well. Application went complete on 7/9 and it is still showing complete. Did you find out anything from admissions office when you gave them a call? Hope I hear something soon.

They pretty mush just told me that decisions can take up to 3 weeks and are made on a rolling basis. They did tell me that unlike most schools, after status says "complete" it then goes to the decision when it is rendered and never says "under review"or anything like that. So complete means the application is already under the review process.

Oh okay, great. Thank you for the information. Keep me posted. I will post on here when mine changes as well. Best of luck- hope to see you in Tallahassee soon!

I applied to UF and FSU as a transfer.
My status for UF says "Under Initial Review By Committie", does anyone know how long it takes for them to make a decision?
Can you provide your story? (i.e., Under Review on 1/1/15, decision made 1/14/15)
