It's in your report for a given school after you submit your app, but since they round to the nearest tenth, it's not as useful in borderline cases. You can plug your numbers in at Law School Predictor and it's in one of the columns. It's a metric that rolls GPA and LSAT into a single number.

In other words, it's a method they use to see if they will accept, hold, or reject you. Although, from what I hear some schools use it differently (like to place you in a certain section once admitted).

I figured that much was obvious, so I was giving a more detailed response.

These indexes are officially going to be the death of me. 5.71 @ UF 85 @ FSU. No acceptances yet from either....bah. Hopefully, Santa Clause will bring a fresh batch of acceptances and I can be one of them. lol. :D Otherwise, Miami or Tulane it is....I really don't want to pay a private school price tag.:(

I was going to call the law school about this; however, I thought I should ask here before I bother them. Does anyone know if the admissions officers will continue to let people know throughout the winter break or will they take off during the holiday season and resume work next semester?

And if someone else wants to call about this, feel free! :mrgreen:

^^^ I think the last day of exams at UF is December 18th? So there is potentially a lot of time (well, some time) for decisions to go out. I bet they will just close shop and resume in January after December 17th. Maybe earlier?

This is probably a really silly question but...does anyone know if it is required to turn in grades from this semester to lsac, provided we haven't heard from our schools or is it kind of an optional deal? I'm planning on doing mine either way but a friend was asking and I did not know the answer so I thought I'd turn it over to the masterminds at TLS.

I'm not. They will get my final transcripts if I matriculate, so I don't see the point in updating everything. If you haven't heard back from them... and it will make your GPA better, then definitly. If it will lower it, maybe not unless they ask.

UF like making decisions on Tuesday; so let's hope they released an admit batch today. I am tired of being "review complete, decision pending" for two weeks as of today

I listed it in some of my previous posts. But my index is well within the range (and sometimes above) those who have already been admitted. Why do you ask?

just to make sure it wasn't somewhat low, and thus less likely to be granted a decision in the next batch

Thanks Barbie, I really appreciate that. I REALLY hope you're right. Given all of the time you have spent looking over the previous UF threads/calculating index numbers, I am actually reassured by you saying that ha ha. :D

I don't have much knowledge on how UF admission process works, but does final decision pending mean that the app is under faculty review?

It's pretty much a hold until they decide whats going on with your app :)

TBH, I got my letter less than 2 days after mine switched from Pending to In Transit. I wonder how long they then knew/sent the letter before they switched it.

My status changed to "Review complete, final decision pending". I have no idea what it means but hopefully I will know soon
