Admitted late December

LSAT: 166
GPA: 3.6
Non-URM

Think I have any shot at merit aid or is that unrealistic?

I feel like you would have already gotten a letter about it if you did. But there's always a chance.

I fall under that category and I just saw movement today. It could be WL but it's something. 158, 3.96.


Good luck! I'm sure it's good news. Let me know when you get the letter!


Thanks slawww! I for sure will. And btw: I called UF and asked if they had put anyone on the WL yet and they said right now they're just doing admits & dings. Soo looks like we should be expecting either really good news or really bad news lol

Good luck! That cat always makes me laugh. Reminds me of the adcom of every school I have sincerely wanted to be admitted to that has denied me. Lol.


Thanks! lol <3 Grumpy Cat. And I feel the exact same way....

Nice! You're good then....

Also, this guy must've just been making stuff up if you called and said no one's been WL'ed then.

Grab something to drink and enjoy...could be a while.

BTW...i heard from a friend in admissions that they are moving really slow this year for some reason. If you are NDR vs waitlisted, you are in a better position.


Is this a credible source? Also, has UF even waitlisted people yet?



YES...and Oh Yes!

I hope! She said they do dings by mail too, but maybe she said that to throw me off lol. And I guess? Idk why anyone would want to spread false info... It didn't make sense that they would be WL-ing when the app deadline hasn't past yet. It's uncharacteristic for them; that's why prople are NDR for so long, in leu of going on a WL early.

You will probably receive a substantial scholarship, if last year is any indication.

I am 99% sure that I will be receiving a rejection letter. Is there anyone else who has tried to use the seat deposit website to test whether it works for anyone? I did my undergrad at UF, so I have my UFID and all of the information.

My stip also was changed to 2.0/good academic standing. I got my revised scholarship offer through e-mail. The original offer took about 2 weeks after i got my initial acceptance back in November. Good luck you guys!

I had my UFID from undergrad. I'm not sure if it was provided in advance to applicants who did not do their undergrad at UF.

Can anyone tell me a bit about housing in Gainsville for law students? I've been doing a little research but would love to hear the real reputation of different places in town. Plus I don't want to end up signing somewhere where mostly undergrads live. Any info would be most appreciated!

If you want to shoot me a PM with some of your preferred specifications I can help you find a place. It really depends on whether you want to be in the suburbs, mid, or down town, house or an apartment, cost, # of roommates, etc.
