Lol WTF

"Teacher, teacher, you forgot to give us homework!"


Discussion between applicants is fine, but this forum is NOT the place to argue or debate which law schools are worth attending and under what circumstances. The threads here typically involve people who have already decided to apply and are seeking or sharing news on the state of their applications. You and them and everyone else are all free to discuss whether or not attending is a good idea in the appropriate forum, not here.

Starting or perpetuating arguments here about whether a school is worth attending may be deemed trolling and get you banned.

I just got an update under the mailings - a "Prospective Student Update"

Anything substantive or just more marketing material? Its just odd cause I have received materials from other schools that I've applied to but no other school updated me for it..

They will regularly send you those throughout the spring semester. Just informational stuff, nothing more.

Geaux12 wrote: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.


Im not sure if the emails mean much, but I hope they do as I am crossing my fingers for my boyfriend to get a scholarship this round! He's been getting the emails too, and so have I but I already got a scholarship. The alum who called didnt seem to know if the people he was contacting were admitted students with scholarships or if he was randomly assigned admits interested in his field of law.

I also got another email from the dean about the scholarship and it explicitly listed my non-quantitative credentials. Something to the effect of "I hope youre enjoying your last semester studying X, and sure you're busy with thesis about Y and your internship at Z" so this makes me think that scholarships were based on the overall applicant and not just numbers.

Good luck to everyone still waiting to hear!!

FML. Aside from some political things, I don't have too much going on in the way of softs as far as the scholarship committee knows.

I got a decent law-related internship this semester which would improve my softs... maybe when I get a scholarship from another school I'll send that information to UF with an attached updated resume.

Yeah I would send in any scholarship info from other schools and updated transcripts and other information that would help. Apparently they continue to review old and new admits each time the board meets, so I feel like any new information to give them a better picture of you as an applicant can't hurt.

I'm hoping more scholarships will go out once some of us withdraw. I know 14k will be going back into the pot this week when I withdraw. I hope one of you awesome peeps gets it. Good luck, everyone!

Status just updated! "Final Decision Reached, Notice Issued"


I'm really nervous. Should I be getting a call if I'm in? Is that fact that I haven't gotten a call reason to believe I've been WL or denied? It changed kind of late in the afternoon...ahhh!

At least I'll know soon though.


FYI I'm a 3.43 166, applied in mid-Jan

Don't be silly. You should be worried about getting money from here, not whether or not you got in.

I could hug you right now, but I'm still nervous about it. Call me a worrier but I don't want to get confident and then be let down.


Edit: there are now options for "Seat Deposit" and "Orientation Fee". Have those always been there, or are they indications of good news?

I know I've been FR/NDR for only a little while, but I want movement too! Ha. :(

Still, that's not to take away from the congratulations that are in order for all of you!!

Mine is zero as well. Maybe I was wishfully imagining that these fees hadn't been listed on my status checker before.
