I called last week and was told i should hear something by the end of the week and to call in beginning of this week....called this week and was told that it looked that they had been doing something with it and I should have a decision by the end of the week. At this point, I can't do anything but laugh at the situation...they'll eventually tell me!


OMG, that's painful! Maybe they extended the deadline just so they could process their current apps...LOL. I feel your pain; the wait was excruciating. Hang in there and keep us posted!


I called yesterday bc Im in the same boat as hetherlys. Ive been in review for almost a month. All they said was to wait and they are just backed up. My letter for UF shipped this week and I already was accepted at FAMU and FSU so I dont know how much longer I can wait. Stetson is my top choice but not if I have to wait until June. :-(

I hope the other schools are giving you an extended deadline to accept/withdraw while you wait on Stetson...that is brutal. For both of you to be accepted at FSU is a REALLY good sign for acceptance to Stetson. I hope you hear this week!

Hi, JD! Will you definitely be attending Stetson?

I haven't had time to read through the entire packet I just received in the mail, but I did see the deposit card to send back.

For those that already deposited, did you send a check with the card, or is there an option to pay online? (I paid another school's first deposit while still waiting on Stetson, and I was able to pay that one online.)

Hey LawBound11! I will be at Stetson this fall. :) Unfortunately, Stetson doesn't have the option to pay the seat deposit online. So I mailed the check with the card.

Congrats again!

Btw, for any USF alumni on here, I was passed all around the phones yesterday to locate where to submit the Dean's Certification Form and I finally got the right office and person. The form goes to the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities. If you fill out the top portion of the form and fax it to them, they will complete the rest and fax it back to Stetson. Their fax # is: 813-974-7383

I haven't been accepted anywhere because Stetson was my only application (I can't sell my house, I've only had it 9 months! I also don't want to relocate my family). But you're right, I think if papalew was accepted at FSU (and possibly UF) there's no doubt he (she?) will get int at Stetson!

Thanks! I experienced the same back and forth just trying to get a transcript sent to LSAC.

Ahh I see...well, sending LOTS of positive thoughts for the good news to be this week! (Otherwise, tell them next week you may show up in-person offering to help process apps.)

My UG said I have to personally bring the form by "because we don't know who it's coming from if you don't."

What? :x :roll:

My UG is about an hour from me, I work full time, and the office closes at 5pm. I'll have to actually take off work early one day to bring this over there now.

Does anyone know when it's due, exactly?

I haven't seen anything about a formal deadline; I'm guessing they probably just need it for our file and before the semester starts. What a pain to have to bring it in person...who else would be submitting a request like that?! :roll: You'd think they would allow you to fax it with a copy of your student ID or drivers license...

Has anyone had any luck negotiating scholarhip after receiving something from a same tier school? (I know someone was told a while ago that they were out of money, but maybe that has changed after seat deadlines.)

Stetson is still my top choice, but I just got an offer from a school that I already have in-state tuition for...all three years at this other school would be about 1/3 of paying OOP at Stetson.

So stressed out right now... :? I know it can't hurt to email Stetson and ask; I was just accepted last week, so I'm not sure if they're still giving anything out or not.

ETA - Anyone that did email, did you email Fin Aid, or someone specific? Please feel free to PM this if you don't want to answer here.

It definitely doesn't hurt to ask. You're not doing anything wrong, just trying to secure your future.

Tomorrow will be the second Friday in the "you should hear something by Friday" process. Hahaha.

What'd you find out from UF?

Not yet. For some reason they have yet to embrace the status checker or email. Its all snail mail for the Gators.

Anyone get $ who was only above one of the two medians? I'm beginning to think money goes exclusively for gaming the rankings.

I was at or above the 75% for both LSAT and GPA and got nothing. I applied late March, so I'm assuming they doled everything out forever ago since they only give aid to 20% of students or something.

In honor of my second "you should hear something by Friday"...who wants to bet a dollar on what happens?

I'm betting I don't. If you win, you'll owe a dollar less than sticker at Stetson!

:P

--edit-- Not more than 5 people can bet against me since I'll be paying sticker if accepted!

--second edit--Totally kidding.

I'm not sure I can actually spare a dollar (yay, sticker! :D) but I'm going to go against you just because I'm hoping you finally hear something!
