I just got a phone call saying I am in! Went complete 1/17, under review 1/30, and admitted today. Status checker said Decision has been made :D

But it didn't say "will be mailed" or anything like that?

It says "Decision made and will arrive by mail." But I did receive the call and said I was admitted.

That makes me feel a little better. Hopefully they are just working down a list...

EDIT: Just got my call, and acceptance! This is one of my top choices, so I am pretty pumped.

Fill out the application and see. I'm a current 1L with similar numbers (162/3.4) and I receive a decent one-year scholarship (though I'm from out-of-state, which I feel like helped).

The deadline was yesterday, but I don't know if they are offering scholarships for newly admitted students.

I hope they have a new deadline. I am pretty sure I read that Jan 30 was the priority application deadline and I submitted my jd app before that

For the new admits what are your numbers if you don't mind? I have been complete complete since Nov. 16th and my status checker has never changed. I kind of feel like it should have at least been under review by now with a 3.44/161 and graduated from FSU Cum Laude in December.

EDIT: 3.44 LSAC / 3.75 FSU
One bad class my first semester.

LSDAS (LSAC) GPA, as opposed to your FSU GPA, is what schools have to report, so it's all they really care about.

that is true but a 3.44 is pretty much median for FSU.

I agree. It's seems unusual that you aren't even under review yet based on your numbers and this thread. Maybe try to send them an addendum explaining the discrepancy between your LSDAS GPA and FSU GPA. Have you tried giving them a call?

I called them about 2 weeks ago and the admissions officer just gave me the run around. I asked them if I would hear something before 3 months like their status checker claims. She said I would definately hear something by then without a doubt but it will be 3 months in 2 weeks. I thought about calling today and asking if something is wrong with my application but I don't know.

They send you a separate email if you are eligible for a scholarship. I was admitted in early November with a 162 and 3.7 and was never offered a scholarship.

You have to wait for them to send you the scholarship application if they think that you are qualified to receive one

Same thing with me... I was all excited about FSU until they didnt even give me a chance for money.

Would it be possible to talk to them and get an app? I've got a hard time believing our numbers don't even qualify us for the chance to apply.

You'll never know unless you try. And who knows, they might be sending out new scholarship applications for those admitted after the new year.
I'm also almost positive that they take more than just numbers into consideration for scholarships.

I got an email in January for a need-based aid application...is that the application you are talking about or is there a merit one too?
