Not really. Of the "early birds" who applied, the only ones who hear back by the holidays are auto-admits. No one else has heard back. There have been no rejections and should be no rejections until March.
Auto-admits started recieving admissions notices around Nov. 15th and continued to recieve admit notices through mid-December, when school closed for the holidays. Since then it seems like there has only been one batch of admissions IIRC, which was apx. January 9th.
So don't think so much about decision being related to your app date as much as the strength of your numbers. If you have borderline or lower numbers, you will hear back in March/April most likely. You will only likely hear back before then if you are a particularly strong applicant.
Also, I just wanted to post as an admitted student about the sudden increase in recruiting emails. Two UF-affiliated recruiting people emailed me this week, one alum and one current 1L student. Usually I get nothing except a monthly or biweekly AS newsletter that advertises one of their certificate programs or something like that... Maybe the increase is a sign that they're going to be sending scholarships out soon? It's about time that they send out a second batch of scholarships based on last year's schedule. It would make sense that they would do a little extra advertising/recruiting before sending out scholly offers.
Probably wishful thinking, but that's what this thread is for lol.
