At least I would be able to get some decent Mexican food. :D


And BBQ. Although, the worst (and most expensive) BBQ I ever had was in Austin.

Ya, Taco Cabana (fast food Mexican restaurant in Texas) has better Mexican food than majority of places I've eaten at in Florida. Missed my chance to go to the Salt Lick last time I was in Texas, supposed to be pretty amazing bbq. Austin is a cool place, has a nice atmosphere, but I was really surprised by how many good eats are in San Antonio.

Do you mean tijuana? That place is good. But for real, I think Gville does lack in Mexican food. We just have the basic chains and then a few restaurants that I don't find that exciting.

Austin has kickass Tex-Mex. I though Taco Cabana was delicious, and it doesn't even hold a candle to most of the other places there.

Ditto. And it only took them slightly more than 5 months to make a decision.

Haha. I'll take that as a not-so-subtle way of telling me i'm an idiot. Be that as it may, normal law schools have waitlisted me, giving me the satisfaction of knowing my status, but essentially granting the same result for the admissions office - delaying an ultimate decision. Why does Florida feel the need to be different?

Dings, WLs and late admits came out in late march/april from UF pretty consistently over the past two cycles. Being significantly below both medians and a non-urm. You would've anticipated a decision at this time if you had done your research.

I'll agree that UF has one of the worst admissions processes in the country, though. The lack of communication from the other side over the course of what urns out to be months for most applicants is pretty stunning. Other schools tell you the date/time of your decision and get back to you within a few weeks regardless of your numbers. Even down to the "decision reached" status update rather than an "admit" or "ding" update. It's all very inconsiderate on their part and reflects poorly on my alma mater.

Sorry, that was a bitchy comment. I interpreted your post as one of entitlement (ie: I deserve a decision sooner than the five months it took them), and got irritated. It's been a rough day.

Same here. Try restarting your web browser...that's all I did and it worked.


No dice. Might need to call admissions.

You do know you can mail a check, right? Also saves you the $5 service fee.
