Ugggggggh. It sounds dumb, but having Friday off would be a big, big deal for me.

And I didn't get a prof call. JIPPED. :wink:

I don't know, but I am curious, as well. I know at the scholars day, they said Friday is a very relaxed day, and they try not to schedule classes on Friday. However, there are some classes on Friday's.

Has anyone else been contacted by a Professor?


Yeah. It was definitely a nice touch.



Yeah, it is one thing to say the faculty is accessible, but so far, in my experience, FSU is trying to show it. I got a phone call from one, and e-mail from another. Both were helpful and really open about using them as a resource for any questions I have.

At least, it looks like it will only be 1L year that you will have to take Friday classes. I'm sure your prof call is coming!

So nobody has asked to be in the c/o 2014 group in the last 24 hours... I think we have gotten all the FSU students who are on TLS :lol:

Also, I dunno if you guys have seen this yet, but it's a very good summary of the Class of 2010 profile, including a helpful map of # of alumni in each state.

--LinkRemoved--

Here's some UF data for comparison... I can't find stats on alumni in each state, though.

--LinkRemoved--

Both FSU and UF had 76% of grads finding employment in FL and 24% going out of state for the class of 2009, as well. I know some people had concerns about differences in portability of the degrees.

I'm trying to find FSU Law merchandise, and I can't find it through FSU's bookstore or Bill's. Am I blind or is there nothing for sale? I just think it's very weird that there aren't any FSU Law t-shirts and such.

Thanks for the links...I was wondering about that myself after reading the UF thread. Although this will only make it harder to decide where to go if I miraculously get accepted to UF at this point!

Here's a shirt: http://www.garnetandgold.com/Details.cf ... category=0
the site also has a license plate frame if you were looking to buy some stuff online...that's pretty much it, though. Kind of a disappointing selection. There's also a brick and mortar Garnet & Gold in Tallahassee that might have more stuff than their online store. I for one have been rocking my ASD shirt everywhere I go in Tampa :D haters gonna hate.

Hey guys. You can buy shirts, coffee mugs, water bottles, hats, etc. from the alumni office at the law school. The selection is much better than what you'll find at the bookstores.

I think we need to step up our game.

edit: AND hoodies!


I agree, plus I'd love a hoodie. How is it that they're making them themselves?

p.s. I requested to join the FB group today :)

I hope they have those sweet bumper stickers too that go across the back window. I love those. I remember when I got into UG that was the first thing I bought so everyone would know where I was going and now I get to add one on top of the other. Most excellent. Am I the only one who thinks like that? haha.

I love bumper stickers as well. As the ASD, I think the student bar table had FSU Law stickers and now I've got one on my car (along with a few other stickers).

Does anyone know how late FSU continues to offer scholarships, or what percent of scholarships have been awarded already? I'd be interested to see figures on this.

Based off of my conversations with the office, I think most/all are handed out at this point.

I did the loan entrance counseling and filled out my MPN yesterday... that was extremely boring. Still hasn't showed up on my FSU financial aid toolkit. I am so impatient!! I accepted my Stafford loan, too. Has anybody else done the counseling/MPN, and how long did it take to post to your account?

I guess it went through because my Stafford loan posted. I thought maybe there was something that showed verification of completing the MPN and counseling, but posting the loan is probably it. Thanks!

I know mine posted before I did the MPN but in order to accept the amount, you have to have the MPN on file.

FYI I live in a complex on Mabry now, and it is not in an area to "avoid". Cheap rent, too.

Umm... where is the alumni office? I went to the law school today to buy some goodies and couldn't find it, and asked a woman working in the mail room and she said it's not in the main law building. I had to get to work so I didn't have time to search for it. LOL <---- newb

I think it's in one of the four little houses facing out toward the old 1st DCA building.

I went on the Great Apartment Hunt of 2011 on Friday and visited Ashford Club, Polo on Park, Jackson Square, Victoria Grand, Evergreens at Mahan, and Blairstone at Governor's Square. If anyone would like up-to-date pricing/availability info or to know what my impressions were (if you're feeling trusting of a total stranger's judgment :wink:) feel free to PM me.
