That will not matter. It's a numbers game, plain and simple. If you've got a higher LSAT or GPA than the next guy on the list, you're in. If not, well then at least you dress well.

Thanks so much! I was looking at http://www.law.ufl.edu/student-affairs/ ... s-expenses .... glad they have updated tuition under new student but not under current students, Thanks a lot UF! Not thrilled tuition is going up but glad it's only $25/hr not the typical 15%.

Congrats law students -
If anyone is looking for a place to live, my condo which we had previously rented out to grad/med students is available for the fall!

Write a killer PS and you'll be fine. But if you can get your score to 160 you are a lock

What's the difference between $$ and grants?

yeah, you keep asking if you have a chance to get off the WL but you never shared your numbers. How could we know if you have a chance?

What should I wear to ILSP (orientation)? The schedule says business casual for the first day, but I'm not sure what this means in law school (i.e. I don't want to be over dressed, but still want to make a good impression).

Any suggestions (especially from 2&3 L's) would be much appreciated :) !

Unless you are a girl, then I really have no idea.


Never, ever, ever show up with a tie and no jacket.

That is what 90% of guys wore at ILSP. If you wear a suit, you will stand out.

Really? (I don't mean at orientation, just generally) It seems it is a somewhat common thing.


If you're going to your 8th grade graduation.


The only acceptable option is jacket/no tie.

I emailed the coordinator of UF's ILSP just to clarify what was expected of incoming 1L's for the business casual dress days of ILSP and she told me that any of these options are acceptable: slacks, dress shirt and a jacket; slacks, dress shirt and tie and no jacket; or khakis and a polo shirt.

Good God people, it's an orientation not a job interview. Just wear whatever the fuck you think will make you look professional while not sweating like crazy. Fashion advice re: shirt and tie/no tie =/= whether it would be acceptable to do either.

I don't know, but I feel like most of us 1Ls are pretty nervous for orientation. Many of us have probably also never been asked to dress business casual before. So for me at least, it was a question worth asking.

Don't be nervous. Everyone is in the same boat. Try to relax and meet people the first couple days. No reason to stress yet.
