If I'm not mistaken, dchunny is URM. Not overly helpful in determining what will happen to you unless you are also a URM. FWIW, I think you are fine anyways.

Applied: 12-2-2010
Went complete: 12-20-2010
Accepted: 1-7-2011

I'm a Tampa native, so Stetson would be a return home to me. So far I'm in at Stetson and Miami, but I'm still waiting to hear about scholarships.

Ticket at Stetson is not financially responsible. Not to say it is a bad school or not worth it with a major scholarship if you wish to practice in the Tampa region, but sticker is a negative assuming you are responsible for the full debt load.

Your LSAT score will give you a very good indication at your chances at FSU. Over 161, you are in great shape. Under that, best of luck. LSN is my source, along with a table someone posted (I'm not sure where it is) which showed their A/R/WL corresponding to LSAT scores. I'll put it up if I find it.

same! Really hoping for a scholly from Stetson! I visited and loved it, but didn't get a fedex package from them when the first group got them last week. Hoping for one soon though. I'm pretty sure I want to go to Florida and not sure if I'll get money from FSU/accepted at UF, but hoping for money from Stetson. fingers crossed anyway.

disagree. (I'm currently sitting in my condo on gulf blvd.) I live in Tampa and have this place on st.pete beach. St. pete is pretty cool. Plenty of awesome bars (I can walk to the Undertow) and everything you would need. Awesome restaurants, shops, and gulf port in and of itself is really cool for anyone who has an artsy side to them. I've lived in Tampa a while, and cannot wait to leave. If I chose Stetson, I would live on St. Pete beach for $$$$ instead of Tampa for free.

Hey guys I have a few questions if anyone wants to help me answer them

1. I applied JAnuary 12th any idea when i should hear about acceptance and then subsequently scholarships.
2. If I live in Gulfport will I need a Car? I plan on buying a scooter to tool around town on but Im hoping to avoid purchasing a car.
3. How is the area immediately around stetson I've seen apartment called the three fountains apartments and they seem like a pretty good deal but still Im curious about the area.

Thanks for the help guys

Why is St. Pete/Gulf Port better than Tampa?

I visited stetson on Friday. Have to say that what I saw of Gulfport was sketchy, so sketchy that I would call it ghetto. the girl who was the tourguide said she lived in downtown st. pete which is just a few minute drive. I went there and realized I had been there to visit a friend at resort there in june. its nice. she said most people live out at the beach or in downtown st. pete. I talked to the housing lady and the school owns an apartment complex and some houses very near the school. I guess there aren't a lot of classes on friday, so the campus seemed really empty. Everything I saw was very nice and the staff I talked to were great. I have nothing to compare my visit to, because stetson was my first visit. I will tell you that you probably won't see a scholarship unless you hit a 165 on the lsat. At least that was my understanding. the numbers I was given make it a very pricey choice. tampa is too far away, I think for practical communting but thats just my opinion.

Photos of the area surrounding Stetson Law would be helpful.
