Do you think this is just for the first year?

Sorry you didn't get one this year :-(
It was quite a surprise for me.


Yeah, it's a yearly thing. I remember asking about it last year and apparently FSU (the school in general, not the law school) has some grant money to give and it's normally dispersed on a first come/first serve basis. So not guaranteed - but still a nice surprise! :D

I don't see Grad Plus either, but that requires a separate credit-based application. It's not automatic like the Stafford, so I'm assuming that's why it's not on there. I don't see my scholarship either, but at the bottom it said some awards could take 96 hours to post. Maybe they're still processing or something. IDK.

I haven't officially accepted my offer of admission or the scholarship so maybe if you haven't that is why? Or, maybe because this is "financial aid" vs. merit aid, it won't show up til we are registered or something...who knows. I'm not worried about it.

Clicked on the link and we can actually set up our Blackboard account and access our financial aid info. The exciting thing is, I have been given a 1000 grant! :-) It just keeps getting better.


So cool! I haven't gotten the email, but I checked Blackboard after reading your post and found that I have recieved a $1000 grant as well! Totally feeling the FSU love now! :)

Gave up my full scholarship this past week... really tough to do :(. I hope it goes to one of you deserving people! I am headed to the Peace Corps though so I can't really complain. FSU Law is awesome in my opinion (and I am a UF alum).

I have not sent in anything yet and I was able to access it. Not sure what this confirmation # is that you all are speaking of. I simply clicked on the link in the email, then clicked on "activate your fsuid" and filled in my info.

Anyone know of any petfriendly appt complexes in Tally? I have a 24lb welsh corgi who will be living with me and I'm going to start the hunt before I hear from UF because, srsly, you never know how long that could take. haha.

Does anybody know who we e-mail or call for more scholarship money? I need to negotiate :)

I'd love to go to FSU but I can't afford it without a little more help.
