So I am not in Tallahassee to read the letter myself, but as my roommate explains it, FSU just gave me 32k. I AM IN SHOCK! Last year they only gave me 7,500. This is quite the curveball.

Yeah, it's a "$24k scholarship for 1L, 2L, and 3L" so, $8k per year - which is essentially half-tuition for me. As far as I can tell, there is no GPA stipulation or anything attached.

Do you classify as OOS Barbie?

Thanks! I am still surprised. This is going to be a tough decision for me, because going to FSU is probably 6 times cheaper than my other option (GW sticker). How do you put a price on your dreams???

No I'm in state. Mines 20k for the first 2 years (I forget the name of the scholarship) and it says its given 5k/semester first 2 years and then I can apply for one for the third year (prob based off my grades @ FSU). That still makes things really cheap. (@4k for first 2 years, and even if I got nothing the third year it would come out to... @22k before fees). Thats crazy.....

I will definitly be attending ASD/ASW or whatever it is. I am going to visit Illinois next month which will give me an idea of how much I <3 it there. Such a difficult decision :(

What type of law do you want to practice Barbie? Not to seem negative or anything but Illinois would be a better fit career wise all-around unless you really wanted to practice in Fla gov't or make a political run. And before I get any hate, I went to FSU and bleed garnet & gold!

Yeah I got 15k/year from Illinois so its pretty much a year for free. I might get instate tuition though because my boyfriend is moving there with me and getting a full time job and I'm going to make him put a ring on it ;). Even if I didn't get in-state though, I'm looking at @ 75k tuition debt from Illinois. FSU @ 22k or less seems amazzzzing, but I really want to get out of Florida. Thats my worry with FSU-- I would really try to make it travel to Georgia at least, and I don't know that it will.

LOL...I dig it. Not sure if you applied, but if anything, I think UF would trump FSU in its GA reach (though both are probably relatively small as far as presence). FSU is a great place to be though. Very easy to network with government officials and get in the door with community leaders. And though I haven't been to IL yet, I'm assuming there is more job opportunity in Tally for the hubby simply based upon Tallahassee's size and "importance". I'm sure the visits will clear things up for ya though :D

:lol:
Yeah I was accepted at UF but I doubt they will give me any $. I really have been stressing about it, but I don't feel ready to make any sort of decision. I honestly have no idea what I'm going to do :(.

Anyone hear anything recently? Specifically scholarship info? I'm pretty set on attending but man would a little merit-based scholarship be nice.

Just got a scholarship for 24k for all three years: 12k for 1L and 6k for the other two. Weird division, but yay!

Congratulations! Did you fill out the scholarship application form they sent? If you did, when did you submit it? Thanks for the help and see you in the fall.

Yep. I got the application on November 22, and submitted it that night. Apparently, they sent me the scholarship on the 14th of December but I just got it in the mail today. (Thanks USPS).

Did anyone cater their PS to FSU specifically? My essay is a little less than 2.5 pages, but doesn't mention any specific school. I am however in UG at FSU... I feel like the fact I'm applying for law school at the same institution I'm in currently would pretty much explain why I want to attend the school. I want to send my app in soon, but the way my PS is written, it would flow very weirdly to add in a paragraph just explaining "why FSU" in it. Any advice? highest LSAT: 163, GPA: 3.9*.

See you in the fall. Check LSN, you could be a convicted felon with a 2.5, a 161 or higher gets you in. 161 is tough though, did you study as much as you could have for that test? Its a beautiful GPA, I hate to see it handcuffed by that test score when a 170 would easily place you in T14. Regardless, enjoy the scholarship $$$, and congrats on a great GPA.

Haha, well thank you. My LSAT score is actually my third attempt at the test. I had some anxiety issues to battle, where I had been PT around 168. I guess I'll just submit my universal PS and see where it takes me!

You got zero to worry about. You could submit a personal statement detailing your love of underwater basket weaving and what will happen is they see your LSAT, mark accept, see your GPA, offer you money, and call it a day. Do you have a general idea of the apartment prices up in Tallahassee? Feel free to PM me to keep the topic clean.
