Haha yeah, I live right behind Mother's and I still don't have mine. I don't think "letter in transit" was a very accurate description...

Yeah I'm calling bullshit on that one. I have to give it to FSU, getting a phone call is great.

I've been FR/NDR for months now. Going crazy. Heard back and gotten into all of the other schools i've applied to, but UF is my top choice. 165/3.21

Anyone with similar numbers to me gotten a decision yet? I'm concerned my GPA is gonna ruin my chances :(.

I feel the same way, 163/3.41. I would be shocked if UF flat out rejected either of us, but I am prepared to ride out the waitlist if need be. So far it seems all Decisions have been made on a Monday so here to hoping the streak continues.

Parents just called saying I received a letter and inside was an acceptance! I probably won't be able to look at it until Monday, but happy that wait is over.

Yeah, we are pretty much in the same boat. Reading last years forum scares me because people were waiting for a decision until april...dunno if I could handle that.

Couldn't hurt, but I don't think it would help much either. Can't see why a GPA addendum would help anyone, considering it doesn't change your numbers. As we've seen throughout the cycle, UF seems to care pretty much exclusively about the numbers.

I think addendums are more helpful for things like C&F issues or to explain discrepancies between LSAT scores.

What does an addendum for a low GPA even consist of? Just wondering.

Congratulations! I'm happy to hear they were actually sent out! You're in Gainesville IIRC? Wonder how long it will take to arrive in Baton Rouge...

Seems like this was the batch for splitters with awesome LSAT scores. I don't think I saw too many admits this batch with sub a 164 LSAT.

So, for posterity... Auto-admits (pre-Holiday admits) have been (generally) above both medians, and the first admits after the winter break have been high LSAT splitters.

Yes.... it most likely would be beneficial. An attorney I work for went and visited the school he attended (U of Oregon) while he was still in review, and an acceptance letter beat him back home. Assuming you impress them, having a face-to-face cannot hurt.

As of status checker today... "File Reviewed, No Decision Reached" What do you think TLSers? What does/should that indicate.

Edit: upon reviewing previous posts... it looks like this happens to everyone. So nevermind. Has anyone ever been flat out rejected instead of going NDR?
