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).


Cheell out.

My apologies, I have never seen a direct flight out of Tallahassee to Miami. I fly out all the time too. Regardless, it will be hard to find something under 300 [i always have good luck with expedia]

where do you fly out of? Expedia has nothing direct :/ (from MIA...from FLL they do but for almost $400)

I was also invited to the "Academic Scholars" event. If I can fit it into my busy schedule, I think I'll be able to go!

Sorry if I came off as an Ass. All this stress about schools is really getting to me(and most others). Anyway, FLL is the airport I found the 350 deal at.

P.S. Barbie, your new picture really brings out your eyes. 8)

Ok. I just looked and Top114 hope you can get a round trip from Ft. Lauderdale to Jacksonville for @ 165, then you'd have to rent a car or hitch a ride.

Hey all,
Just wanted to clear up the scholars day /admitted students day confusion. I was able to get more information on this.
Being invited to scholars day does not mean that you will be receiving a scholarship at all, it has nothing to do with financial aide. The invitation is extended to those who have scholarly achievement in their undergraduate careers. It is certainly an honor to be invited and the only tangible difference from admitted students day is that lunch will be more formal and more faculty will be in attendance at the lunch.

Now I'm sure that if you have achieved such scholarly achievement, the odds of you getting a scholarship are higher, but don't think attending this event is going to inflate or change any potential offers...you'll be sorely disappointed.

The truth is, a great deal of admitted students have been invited to scholars day, and you're all invited to admitted students day!

Hope to see everyone soon, and as always, I'm happy to answer any further questions about the school.

Still seems like a great program to go to!!
Does anyone know when we'll find out whether we received scholarships or not?

We should honestly make an admitted students FAQ, a lot of these questions are becoming repeats.

Dr. Strangelove:
You will soon receive an e-mail from FSU CoL requiring you to fill out some supplementary documentation. One of the forms you will fill out will be a scholarship application/information sheet. After that is received, you will be notified of any awards via snail mail.

There certainly must have been some sort of mistake as I received an invite to Scholars Day :shock:

Am I correct in assuming that Academic Scholars Day is not something spouses would be able to come to? I guess for the tour at 2pm they could come....any thoughts?

Hmmm, what will he do? Does he have family there? I'd really like my husband to join me as it is a long drive from NC.

Idk, but he's a big boy haha I'm not much worried about it. We'll have a hotel room and he will probably find himself a local sub shop or pub and test out the food, maybe do a little walking around to see the town (he likes to do that) or even BETTER take his resume to a few places and start looking at possible jobs.

No but while I'm up there I'll probably look at housing and other stuff to try and get a complete feel for FSU. It all depends on if UF offers me any $$ ha

Hey everyone,
Just booked my hotel in Tally for the Scholar's day. I did the name your own price thing on priceline and got the Courtyard Marriott on Apalachee for $50 a night. It's pretty close to the law school. Anyways, just thought I'd throw that tip out there.
Anyone here have any kids? Or am I going to be the only parent in the mix?

Just submitted my RSVP to Academic Scholars Day! I am living in Tally now, so if anyone wants to go drink afterwards, I'd be more than willing to help show you around the good bars here :)
