I called this morning too and as happened to you, my status changed to decision rendered. However, I didn't complain. I simply asked for an update as to why things were taking so long. I'm not sure if such a quick response is necessarily a good thing. Oh well, good luck to you! I too will have my fingers crossed!

My status changed today to decision rendered, letter mailed. I have not called at all - could just be the next cycle of letters. Not sure if it's admit, reject, waitlist? Nothing else on my status checker changed, I just have some random zeros under my application fee.

I'm seeing the same thing under my seat deposit. I've seen this questioned posted before, but do not recall the response. I'm not sure if anything changes. Good luck!

I actually recall someone who was accepted say that when they were waiting for their letter the seat deposit wasn't showing so you never know. Way to be optimistic though, really encouraging for the rest of us!

Also I forgot to mention I applied to the part time program. Did the other applicants who saw their status change today apply part time as well?

Would those of you that had their status change recently mind posting your numbers? Also, if you were part time/full time? I guess it can help us identify which direction they are heading in, in regard to what they are looking for right now. I know they need to keep their averages so they might be looking for specific candidates with higher gpa or higher LSAT depending on the pool of students that have already paid their deposit earlier this month.

Looks like they sent the Part-Time decisions out Monday then. Good luck to the rest of you. I live 10 minutes away from FIU so I'm hoping that I get the letter some time this week. Will update as soon as I receive it.

Feel free to PM me, thanks!


I attended FIU for undergrad (graduated last semester) I could answer any questions about the school in general, not so much about the law school

I was accepted just before the holidays and when my status changed to Decision Rendered Letter Mailed A fee of $200 was added under my App fee. It wasn't labeled but I assumed correctly it was my seat deposit. I received my acceptance letter about 3 days later.

I haven't received anything but I did write Mrs. Miro an email about financial aid after Christmas and have yet to receive a response which leads me to believe they may still be out for winter break. (but thats a total assumption)

Hope this helps, and wish you both the best of luck!


I know that there was a few letters mailed recently (mine included). I found this earlier in the thread and wanted to repost it because I know some of us have been wondering about this. Has anyone who had a decision rendered received the letter? I have read different things on this thread and am anxious to know the decision already.

From what ive seen in this thread, other threads, and friends of mine that have gotten accepted, the general consensus is that MOST people that were accepted saw the $200 seat deposit change when their status changed.

If any of you feel comfortable, please share with us your numbers. This is an anonymous site, after all lol. I wonder if they are looking for higher gpa or lsat this second round?

I received that letter yesterday. Basically said that they were holding onto my application due to "a record number of applicants". FIU might've been an option if they'd gotten back to me within a reasonable amount of time, but it looks like I'm putting down a deposit at UM. Can't really afford to pay multiple deposits at this point.

Great, no new numbers on my check application so I'm for sure on that hold list as well. I should be getting the letter either today or tomorrow. What a bummer :(

I'm waiting on the letter but am afraid that I'll be in the same situation. I'll be putting down my deposit at UM this week. I, however am still waiting on FIU's response. I called today and they told me that they should be responding to those on the hold list within 4-6 weeks. I still have hope.
