If I may ask, what is your first choice? It seems like you and I are applying to a lot of the same schools (based on the boards I've been stalking the last few days!)



I wanna know this too, you are applying to every school I am! (I know we have discussed this already...just saying).

Honestly, because of my unique situation I applied to a TON of reaches. Like, 15 or so (amen for fee waivers). So if any of them bite I would be happy. They include Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, CU, UGA, UNC, Indiana-Bloomington, etc. I consider UF kind of a reach too. I'm not sure what my top choice is... I would really love to attend a lot of schools for a lot of different reasons. I have to get out there and visit wherever I get in and see how I like the cities/towns (I am not well travelled at ALL) and all that.

Ditto to Neo and lsat. So if you are accepted to all the schools you've applied, which one will you go?

haha idk!! I'm from north GA so I've always been a UGA fan. I think Wisconsin is pretty freakin sweet but out of state would kill me. CU is nice and I could get in state but I hear they are really suffering job wise. Overall though... prob UNC. It just seems like the best holistic fit for me.

It's ok. I come from a family of Miami Hurricanes. I guess UM and UF aren't quite the rivals they use to be, but people still question me when I say that UF is one of my top choices for law school (despite UF having the better reputation). It would definitely be tough to wear that blue and orange, but I'd make the sacrifice to save over $10,000 a year.

I'm at UF now for undergrad, so I guess here is my first choice now that Texas is out. I was kind of bummed yesterday when I got the news. Ah well, UF is a great school.

Question about LORS
I initially sent 2 because I was having trouble with one of my recommenders (He is a dean and is extremely busy - but I did give him plenty of time). He sent my letter to LSAC last week. Does he need to send it to the university directly or will LSAC send it to UF?
UF is my first choice and I think this letter will be a good one.

Please let me know
Thanks

While I actually think LORs have almost no bearing on the admissions decision and could actually hold back the timing of your application, you can send it to UF through LSAC by just selecting it for UF like you did the other 2 before you submitted.

Np. Also, I'm not sure if your numbers-- but if there is anyway you think you could be waitlisted, it is very smart to have an additional (and better) LOR up your sleeve. It can be sent in to remind them you still want in, and let them hear more good things about you. Just an idea.

Your status checker says "final decision made"?????? Mine still says, "initial review complete; final decision pending". Has anyone else experienced a change??

Uh, I think mine just changed too...Except I can't remember what it said before exactly. I feel like it just changed one word, it now reads: "Review complete, final decision pending". But the date is still November 4th...maybe it didn't change and I am just imagining it did? I really feel like they swapped out words though...

For what it's worth, my status changed today from "under initial review" to "Review complete, final decision pending"

ughhh I wish they would just let people know already.
