If I'm getting no where with UA, I at least was to see you get your dream school.

Thanks!! Hahaha. Yep pretty much, as a FL resident and someone with public interest goals, the FL schools are my best & top options. Hopefully you get UA soon!

Thanks

UF Law School applications are down 30% so far this year and Law Schools applications around the country are down drastically. Honestly, for us who are applying this cycle-we are in a good position due to its not as competitive with the application volume being down. Sad part- please don't raise tuition anymore....(i.e. UF!!!)

That happened to me when I was registered for a future LSAT. Didn't update until after I got my score back. Did you retake in February?

The next step is typically Final Review, no decision reached. Then it sits there for awhile

+1.

Also, I called admissions and asked when those of us who have been NDR for a long time can expect a decision. They told me the vast majority of decisions are sent out in March and into April. -__-

didn't retake in Feb. I did the extra app as soon as they emailed it to me. It hasn't updated since 1/30 so I assume once it updates it will be okay. At least I hope.

April? Please no. In order to keep some of my scholarships I need to make a decision before then :|

Yep, that's what I was told by admissions. Of all of the schools I applied to, UF has the most excruciating process. I'm in the same boat with making seat deposits at other schools.

Likewise! It's frustrating having been admitted to higher and similarly ranked schools already, but I guess that's how they do things at UF.

Hello everyone...new to the board.

aklam19...Have you figured out what documents you are missing yet?

If there are any C & F issues, you may need to submit extra docs with them. For example, for traffic violations, some schools want you to submit copies of tickets and that they were paid.
