Something I've noticed about UF students on this thread:

They only care to speak with you if you've gotten in. Think about that if you DO get in.

Nope, we just don't know anything about the waitlist, so we can't help the person.

Good luck to those who were recently waitlisted!


Not to sound like a troll or anything...but I think stating that would have been sufficient. Nobody even addressed the poor poster.

It also isn't uncommon for someone to PM posters specific responses, especially ones that could contain personal information (if a poster was waitlisted last year and got in, maybe they don't want everyone to know).

:cry: 'bout it.

I can see your point, but usually other people who are also waitlisted have done more research into past waitlist patterns and they usually chime in with what they have found or if a current student was pulled from the waitlist they usually say something.

As others have said, it'll take you somewhere from 25-45 minutes, depending on the time of day. I live on that end of town, and it does stink getting to school. There's plenty of housing much closer to school, and if you have that option, I recommend living closer to school. You have enough on your plate as a law student that you don't need a longer commute.

I think it's more just the reality that most people know little about waitlist activity.

It's okay. I didn't think anyone was ignoring me. If I had been accepted I'd be more worried about my financial aid than other students' admissions decisions. Really, who knows anything about waitlists? But thank you for rearching the waitlist patterns anyway.

I think you have a good chance of getting off the waitlist after the May 16th seat deposit deadline. Just mail in letters of continued interest so they know that you REALLY want in.

Good Luck!

so, it shows your loans? Also, are you complete or incomplete under aid status?

:( I is deprived. :(


Barbie, really sorry for the late reply, been studying all day.... umm, not sure if this helps but this is copied straight from my "aid status" section on ISIS

You signed your Application for Federal Student Aid on: 2/ 7/2011
The University of Florida received your Application for Federal Student Aid on: 2/ 9/2011


File Status

You have no missing documents or requirements on your file at this time.

.....besides that, AWARD DATE is 4/25, it is NOT a projection, but final...entrance and MPN, i want to say i did that as soon as it was available (months ago). But yea, not sure if it has anything to do with being at UF already or not? Those who have a complete package (where it actually askes to accept or decline loans), are you guys also at UF?

So did anyone end up deciding on a house to rent around the law school and possible looking for another roommate?
