Idk why but it's kind of a turn off having ave Maria, Barry and etc. students transfer in. I think UF had like 30 transfers.

Sounds pretty awesome. I've got a couch to sleep on tonight, which should be all I need. I've got a 4 hour drive ahead of me...

And some people at the very beginning of the thread mentioned a shirt and handwritten card. But I don't know if that was only for early admits!!


Yeah I'm driving over Thursday too. I'll be the loud one on the strip.

What is this t-shirt and card you speak of?


You're out of luck... The Strip closed down. Ken's is still there though! :)

I'm an FSU student, and I'm looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow! Are you guys considering going to the social tomorrow night?

I'm not sure where you are getting your stats from, but FSU and UF had roughly the same number of transfers in 2011...

I'm in the same boat... Do you (or anyone else) have an opinion on emailing a nicely worded WTF? to see what the holdup is?

Unfortunately we are still in the time frame that they say it takes for them to receive and review applications. So a WTF email would probably get a response telling us to chill.

Also, FSU reviews applications based on strength. So they review the stronger applications first, which does not bode well for you and me.

That is not exactly true...I'm within the 25th percentile and already went in review. I applied in Jan.

I was under the impression that they were one of the few schools the reviewed applications in order based on strength. All of the evidence on this thread would support that. What exactly does "within the 25th percentile" mean? That doesn't really make sense.

FSU Law 25th Percentile LSAT 161 and below
GPA 3.30 and below.

Why would they review an applicant below those numbers before an applicant above those numbers?

I was under the impression that the higher the numbers the stronger the applicant.
