That sucks... I'm 3/3 also. 159/3.7, disabled combat vet, 8 years post-undergrad. I think you may be right about the hard floor of 160. I'm assuming my decision should be in my mailbox when I get home.

Is that the one they advertised in our packets at ASD? Because if so, it is REDICULOUSLY priced! I don't have it on me, but I remember I showed warflamingo and we were both like... wtf? I think a 2 bedroom there is almost the same price as the huge 4bedroom ranch with land & a garage I just deposited on. I'm thinking they will def have to lower the prices.

Yeah those were absurd!

I'm really excited because I may have found an awesome roommate! Now I just need to find an awesome apartment. :D



I hope you are talking about me!!!! I'm super excited and I can't wait to start looking!!!! AHHHHH :)

stay positive! UF already broke the pattern by sending three batches last week instead of just two...maybe they are sending mixed decisions this cycle...keep your head up! 8)

Valentina already said this but they could be mixed. I could v easily see you getting in and if not, waitlisted. I don't think you'd be rejected this quickly.

Quick reminder to all those who are also at "file reviewed, no decision reached"... Based on what the secretary said over the phone when I called back in January, its basically UF waiting for more applications to come in, (as late as their March 15th deadline) to further compare you with the competition...so for those that may have this status from as far back as November, it says a lot that they find something in your application that is keeping u from being flat out rejected...so yea, let the waiting continue, assuming after March 15th we still don't know

Found this website when I was trying to learn more about the admissions process, my son/daughter doesn't come to the site. Anyway, I am posting this info just to help some who might be on pins and needles. My daughter/son received his/her admissions letter today. He/She was from Tuesday's 3/1 group. Her/His stats were approx 163ish and 3.2ish. (Protecting his/her privacy as he/she doesn't know I'm on here).

He/She will be accepting admission. Florida was her/his first choice.

My letter was sent out 3/3 and i got it today, it was a rejection. my lsat was a 155, everyone who got it sent that day was below a 160, and the prior week (2/28) everyone that got one was an acceptance I would guess. as for the rest of you Good luck in the waitlist. If you look at last years post they start taking people of the list in May and all the way until the week before school starts. I will be taking the LSAT again, pretty foolish to risk getting in below the 25%tile

This SUCKS! I'd think this is a high prob. acceptance, worse case scenario waitlisted app.
Super sorry to hear that ScrabbleChamp. Good luck on your other prospects!
