162/3.5

Thanks for giving me hope! How early did you apply and are you a Florida resident?




I applied dec 3 or so, and I'm a Florida resident/UF undergrad. Good luck :)

My application went complete yesterday, under initial review today. Hoping to go NDR quickly, as that seems to have been a good sign for past applicants!

Yeah but Fragrock's LSAT puts them in a good place. I would bet that you'll hear back sooner rather than later, especially considering Chomp got their decision yesterday and has similar numbers. Good luck!

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed. I have a long legacy of UF in my blood (both parents, aunts, uncles, cousins all went for undergrad). I think if I chose FSU my dad might have a mental breakdown =)

I was reading through some past threads, and some applicants were NDR all the way until March/April. I don't know if I could handle a wait like that haha

I knowww I was reading through last years thread and was getting anxiety seeing how late some people finally got their decisions! Just have to stay positive though I suppose... and NOT check ASO more than twice a day :wink:

Yep, this is so brutal! For me, the hard part isn't not checking ASO, it's not checking TLS incessantly.

I made the same mistake last year. It's tempting to bookmark TLS on your phone and constantly check up to see who goes NDR or gets dinged/accepted, but you'd probably be better off only checking once or twice a week. The letter that comes in the mail is out of your control, as is any scholarship money. Enjoy your last semester (go out and have a drink with friends as often as possible), because there will be plenty of time to obsess over law school once you're actually in law school.

Completely agree with this. Unfortunately, I already graduated, so I don't have that to keep me occupied. I also just finished an internship, so I'm currently unemployed. Deadly combo -_-

No Movement here. I'm starting to get the feeling I'll be one of those people that doesn't hear back until March/April.

Don't say that!!! I'm starting to think your earlier prediction of mid-Feb. is more accurate though...

Sure hope so, I'm doubtful now, though! I thought even with my GPA, my 162 would have gotten me in already, for sure. Especially since their median dropped.

When you called them, were they really vague about when NDR's can expect decisions?

I forgot what your GPA is... would you mind posting or PMing?

They said that its on a constant review basis, blah blah, but she looked at my info and said she doesn't expect it to be too long, like into March or April.

Loved the GPA drop too, got me inside that 25th percentile.

I never noticed that, since my GPA is low I've only followed LSAT trends, but that is definitely re-assuring. What was the GPA range before?

I believe it was 3.43/3.82 for 25th/75th, now it's 3.33/3.73.

Their website has the stats for the class of 2015, pretty much all other sources have the class of 2014's #s.

Status changed 1/17/2013: File Reviewed, No decision reached... Does this mean they are throwing me on the waitlist?

Not at all. It just means they looked at your file and haven't made up their mind of you yet. Basically, they want to wait and see what else comes their way before they make a decision on your file. Definitely not a wait list... more like purgatory.

And ps, Slawww and I have been in NDR hell for about 2 months now. Welcome to the party :p
