Has anyone heard from FIU for the 2012 starting class?

I'm serious... lol I've been under review for 4 weeks so I wanted to know if anyone had made it past this step.

Under review since late October. Florida resident, so I'm definitely interested in the cost factor for FIU.

For me, my status checker said, "decision rendered, in mail," or something to that effect, last Thursday. And then the next day, I received an email online asking me to fill out a form pertaining to my residency. However, I have yet to receive anything in the mail. I am hoping it is good news. It is a bit frustrating because I was planning on attending the open house at the school at 1 tomorrow, but doing so would be of no use if I was rejected. I spoke with Dean Acosta when he came to our school. He seems like the real deal, concerned mostly with getting students jobs and moving FIU up in the rankings. The school itself seems like an up-and-comer. I was definitely impressed with what I heard.

Got the letter today as well. Does anyone know when the scholarship applications come out? If you were eligible, were they supposed to be included in your acceptance envelope?

How long did it take any of you accepted to receive your letters once your Statuses changed to "decision rendered, letter mailed"?

My status changed December 5th and I'm on pins and needles. They have added a $200 fee under my application fee which I'm hoping is record of my seat deposit.

and Mrs.G I'm I'm sure your in if the seat deposit was posted!
Can I ask what your numbers were?


When did you apply? It's possible they are holding your application for acceptance/denial for later in the admissions cycle?

Thanks for the encouragement! I think I'm in too, but I'd rather be skeptical.

My numbers were 156/3.3. I have a couple bad semesters on my transcripts but a good start and finish to undergrad.

Good Luck!

Them setting aside your app for later in the cycle would be my best guess. You can always contact them.

My friend had similar numbers to you except ever so slightly higher and was waitlisted and eventually accepted a year ago. Good luck to you.

Ive been under review since October 13th! I was hoping to receive a response before the year ended, but it looks like they are going to wait til later in the cycle to make a decision :/

We'll see what happens. Good luck to everyone. I know this process is nerve wrecking :/

I sent in my app today at about 3pm and by 4:45pm it was under review? Did anyone else's go under review this quickly?

fiupike24, I am in basically the same position. In review since October with numbers around median. Really hoping to hear something soon. Great bargain for Florida residents. Probably my clear third choice behind UF and FSU.

I'm in. Florida resident, non-URM. It seems like a really great program, although I have never ventured down there. So pumped.

So stoked! Hoping and praying for a scholarship, but don't think my numbers are high enough.

Anyone have insight as to when they got scholarship information after getting word of acceptance?

Can anyone tell me what their fee section looked like prior to getting a decision? Did you all have the 0.00 below the application fee being paid?
