Scholars' Day = weekend for top applicants, Feb. 18th.

That said, who's going to Scholars day? I'm RSVPing now, but us TLSers who are going should definitely meet up at some point.


Thats what I'm asking - I was under the impression that unless you had a scholarship you didnt get invited to Scholars day. Wouldn't top applicants get scholarships ? 8)

Barbie, there's kind of a well-hidden link in the e-mail -- the word "online" takes you to a registration page.

Hmm. So far I've only seen scholarship people say they are going to ASDFeb18, anyone without a scholarship get the invite ? I'll def be there on the 18th as the March25th is the weekend of other schools too.

I was just admitted on Monday, haven't received a scholarship offer, and just received the invite to the Feb. 18th scholar's day.

My dilemma is that the 18th is also Wake's scholar day....haven't gotten a scholly there yet either but expect to. AAGHHH what to do???

So youre saying this free t shirt we are getting could potentially be a financial windfall for us with the limited supply - do we have to report this on our FAFSA?

haha well you won't have to wait long to get one!

I am debating going. I went last year and therefore do not need two t-shirts, two coffee mugs, etc... and I already know the shpeel. I'd also have to take off work. But I would like to meet you guys and offer up a good Tally time for Friday night!

This is spectacular.
161/3.4


I would like that at this point. I've been complete since very early November.
160/3.75


Not sure how the rest of your cycle is going, but I haven't been admitted to a single school. That being said, most of my December apps were to reaches (T20) and I applied to the 3 FL schools in January.


I'm in at both Tulane and Miami. I am waiting still on UF, FSU, and UA. I applied at the end of October though and have been complete everywhere since pretty much the week of 11/5. So I'm going to law school somehwere...just right now its an expensive somewhere. Hopefully news will come.

If it helps, I went on a tour of UA last week and an adcomm said they were absolutely swamped with apps this year, and they were way behind. I think they've only been doing auto-admits so they can see who's going to jump for a less regional law school or take the nice scholly. Plus the UA undergrad Honors College admits don't have to commit yet, and they technically have to keep those spots open for them.

You give me hope for Tulane! Still sitting at complete for FSU.

I would loooove UA. I'd still be on athletic scholarship my first year of law school and a year paid would be huge. lol. As for Tulane, they were my first acceptance...go figure. I didn't think I'd get in there. I just applied because they sent me two fee waiver emails.

Apparently someone from Orlando did, but when I asked they said they have to wait and see the responses they get from out of state applicants. If you are out of state, you will get one. If you are in-state, you have to wait and see IF you get one.

Hey...I also got this email today and have yet to hear back about scholarship offers, I was also admitted Monday (I think Sandro asked about people without scholarships but with an ASD invite).

Don't think I will be able to go now ):

Anyone have any good ideas for getting cheap tickets from south Florida to Tally? I checked everywhere for all the dates around/on scholar day. I really don't think 16 hours of driving is worth it? Right? Right.


The drive is not that bad. Flying is a waste of time (and anything out of Tallahassee is so expensive + layovers bc there are no direct flights)

The drive becomes bad when you think about the reasons you are going, and then you think about how everyone of your questions could easily be answered on TLS/or by calling them. Although, I could be wrong. However, If I were a person who has never once been to Tally, I might still go.

I think you should go -- I personally think that giving the folks at FSU a face to go with your name and numbers can go a long way.

P.S. FSU currently has the #1 football recruiting class in the country, according to ESPN. Coincidence? I think not.

My point was you wouldn't be saving that much time by flying ... because of the layovers.

Your point was wrong. They do have direct flights. Check Delta. I would be saving about half the time, and it would be paid for by the school (if I can find that lucky flight for under 300).

Wait, where are you coming from?? You can fly into Tampa and ride to Tally with me :)

Tally has the itty bittyest airport ever. I looked for flights from Tampa to Tally and they were ~ 400. Lame.
