Same, UF is currently my number one, however I eagerly await the scholarship offer, W&M gave me in state so I'd need something similar to choose Florida over W&M.

Has anyone seen this?

Do you think going to this will be beneficial? Also it says diverse students, and it lists who it is partnered with, I don't want to feel out of place or anything.

Quote from the event description: "This collaborative outreach event is designed to identify resources and help provide students with skills early in their college career that will assist with successfully navigating the law school admissions process."

I feel like this is intended more for younger students. I go to FSU and I personally wouldn't make the trip down for the event. But if you live in Gainsville or are going to be in the area then maybe give it a shot. You can always call admissions and ask if they think it's a good idea for you to attend.

I do live in Gainesville. I have of gotten an official tour of the campus or anything related to that. I don't have anything else going on that weekend. I think I might go since it won't hurt my chances

Total crapshoot. Could be as long as it takes for the letter to arrive; could be NDR for a very long time. Enjoy your spring semester.

I wonder if the drop in applications will mean that those of us that aren't auto-admits can expect to remain NDR for longer than past cycles. Got pretty bored and did some research:

2011-2012 cycle acceptance info: http://www.lsac.org/officialguide-2013/lsac_5812.asp

2010-2011 cycle acceptance info: http://www.lsac.org/lsacresources/publi ... ac5812.pdf

I noticed that in the 2011-2012 cycle UF received about 350 less applications, but accepted more students than in 2010-2011. Hopefully the trend continues 8)

lets hope they ease up a bit for the 2013-2014 cycle, then become the toughest school to get to for 2014-2015

It shouldn't have, but this made a difference during my cycle. They are the absolute best at these little touches.

Yeah!! I was really surprised. I was like, "Yay! My personal statement wasn't crap after all! They liked it!"

Just got the "Final Decision Reached, Notice Issued" update!! I went NDR on January 17. Keeping my fingers crossed. Sounds like it takes a few days for the mail.

This seems like it would be a difficult statistic to ascertain, but does anyone know how UF does in comparison to Miami as far as job placement in southern Florida?

Do they send an e-mail notification when the status changes to FDR?

I didn't get one either, so my guess is no.
