really? can you remember for sure?
and do you have any idea how long you were "decision pending?"


oh come on, you knew this would make me bombard you with questions... :D

I think I went decision pending sometime in ummmmmmmmmmmmmm. No I don't remember. I just searched the old thread but I can't find it. there's probably some helpful info in there for you from pages, say, 45-60. I was decision pending for quite a bit though, and wasn't accepted till March 26th iirc.

Oooh old man here. Thats when 161 was median LSAT, probably, right? I would have near considered you auto-admit 2 years ago. Sheeze. I'm screwed. haha.

I guess. I probably shouldn't be giving admissions advice (well, maybe transfer admissions advice) since I'm a bit detached from the process, but I recall having been in the situation where it said decision pending for months on end and turned out to be fine. So don't fret too soon.

Dang son. I do NOT want to wait until March. I'm about to leave work so I'll do some more trolling of the UF thread last year when I get home and maybe come up with some stats.

it looks as if the people last year who got "decision pending" in November got their acceptances in late January (around the 20th)

My status, as of 11/16, now reads, "Letter issued (5-10 days for receipt)." I hope that's a good thing! Good luck to everyone who applied this cycle!

For what it's worth, mine also says "Letter issued, (5-10 days for receipt)". Fingers crossed that this is a good letter. Just got accepted into FSU as well, so I think some big decisions will be coming soon.

We have very similar stats... do you have Florida ties? Just thought it was curious you've applied to UF FSU and Stetson

I'm jealous of all you auto-admits. It seems as if UF is going to screw me over for a 3.6 GPA. Can I write an addendum to them saying I had ONE bad freshman semester and the rest of my college career I have taken 16+ credits AND had a GPA of 3.8+? Or should I just suffer until they make that decision?

Same boat. First semester of freshmen year I got a little over a 3.0. Every semester since I've gotten at least a 3.7. I probably should have done an addendum, too..

They would NOT ding you for a 3.6 unless your LSAT is... like 160 or below maybe. 3.6 is a good GPA.

I got the "Letter Sent" status ticker too. I'm outside of both 75%s, FWIW.

I'm just saying it wouldn't be BECAUSE of the GPA. A 3.6 is, what, UF's median or so?

Haha no, I know. I know my LSAT is the weight that's dragging the rest of my otherwise decent application down

Below Median..and yep I covered all of Florida! In at Miami though, so that's a bit of a relief!
