I'm sure you will be admitted. I wouldn't worry

Any of you guys get e-mails about a stipend to ASD? I am honestly thinking about asking my professor to move up my test date so I can make it.

Yup I got it and responded immediately! I have an exam on that day as well but if I get the stipend I'm definitely going.

Got the email about ASD but had no mention of any stipend. I am pretty average numbers-wise for FSU. To speak in college football terms, are stipends only for five-star recruits? You guys can be honest; it won't hurt my feelings lol.

I wasn't planning on attending ASD; but if I can get a decent stipend for the drive from Louisiana I'll definitely consider it.

I'm considering calling Admissions today to ask about my application and why nothing has changed on the status checker in 3 months. Any suggestions on this?

I'm near Tampa. I really hope I get one! I can't go unless I get one ... My job doesn't pay so well.

For those of you asking about a stipend, you have to be somewhat far away to receive one. If you are in Florida, you will probably not get one.

Has anybody heard any word about receiving a 1L merit scholarship? They said we would be notified by February 15th so I'm crossing my fingers!

Where did you hear this from? I've been wondering whether the most recent group of admits would be considered for scholarships...

I received an email at the end of November with a scholarship application attached. The application said that scholarship recipients will be notified by February 15th.

Its been talked about a lot in earlier pages, but many people received scholarship applications in December and those of us who did, should find out by the 15th.

I thought that if I completed the application earlier than the January 30th deadline, I would hear back before the 15th, but I haven't heard anything yet.

156/3.4 Super strong softs though... has already gotten me into schools that I didnt think I could get into.


You are a shoe-in at FSU. While we are at it, let's surgarcoat more stuff. We are all getting associate jobs as soon as we graduate and getting 100K right out of the gate.

You see, the thing is, when you propose such idiotic inquiries, you're not going to get all serious, analytic answers; you're going to get some responses, like this one, that address the extremity of your propositions.

Think.

Then post.

Thanks.

Ok well im sure im not the 1st one to tell you this, but I'll say it anyway, go fuck yourself. All i did was ask a question about what my chances are. Your post was unbelievably uncalled for... I dont know if your angry because you got rejected everywhere, or if you have some personal issues that derive from your asbergers-like social skills, but you can promptly shut the fuck up.

Ben,

As a 157 3.6 (last cycle), I can tell you your chances aren't great.

What kind of softs are we talking about? I need more info about your softs to give you a proper chancing.

Yeah I understand that... I have done a very large amount of volunteer service, it would take a while to describe/type most of it out, but I will tell you the most profound volunteer experience I had was a month in a township in South Africa, teaching HIV positive mentally handicapped children.

I can PM you the others if you want

I do think it would be pure speculation to try and determine how much weight it actually holds to the admissions board...

Ben. Ignore jackasses like this. He or she has no friends and is bitter about it.

Like others have said, your chances are slim, especially if you applied late in the cycle. But if the softs that you mentioned might add to the diversity of the school, so there is always a possibility, even if it is a very small one. At least you have other schools that have accepted you. Keep us updated.

Has anyone who registered for ASD received the confirmation email with parking information, directions, etc.? It says that you should receive it within three days from initially registering but I haven't gotten it yet. Thanks.
