Right...I stay in Jax. Thats only about an hour away so hopefully they actually mailed it out already.

Yeah, hopefully they actually mailed it out on Monday. I really just wish they sent the all decisions via e-mail.

I assume they are kicking them out soon! March 15th app deadline approaching. Good time to apply to law schools for us though. Apps seriously down this year- the last I heard was 30%. Competition for admissions now and jobs once we graduate should tip in our favor.

I live about 2 hours away from Gainesville and didn't get my decision until Saturday ..Not sure why it still takes so long :/ If you went to UF undergrad (which I did) you can check the seat deposit website (url is somewhere on this thread) Thursday night using your old UF ID and see if you can place a deposit if you can't stand to wait til Friday/Saturday afternoon. Good luck!

Damn, I don't want to wait that long :( I don't have a UF ID, unfortunately, so I'll have to wait it out. Hopefully this batch is quicker 8)

Actually, you probably do have one (I think). I seem to recall having a UF ID when I filled out the supplemental forms for residency and whatnot on UF's application. Check there and see if you have one!

Otherwise, it took about 10 days after a decision was reached for my letter to arrive in South Florida.

Hopefully :) I know how painful the waiting game can be, especially since they mail their decisions

Thanks so much meowllory! I was panicing because that trick wasn't working, but it did seem like other applicants had to wait a few days. Thanks for offering a timeline :)

You're right! I do have a UF ID on there, but I decided I'm just going to wait for the letter the old-fashioned way 8)

Nice! Well make sure to post back here!

Also, this might be premature, but for those already admitted, did scholly information come in the acceptance letter?

That's what I did too, lol.

As for scholly info - some people have reported getting scholly info after being admitted in this thread I believe.

It comes separately. I got my scholarship information about 2 weeks after. And I just heard about my need based grant last week.

My theory:

Final Decision Made 03/11/2013
Letter printed 03/12 or 03/13
Mailed out 03/14

3 to 7 days...depending on where you reside. I hope I'm waaaaay off!! lol

I hope not! My theory is printed out 3/11, and actually mailed out 3/12 :D

Just checked online through the seat deposit website because I live in Gainesville and have not received anything in the mail yet. This morning it would not let me log in, stating that my name did not match my LSAC number, but now it just let me through. I assume this means I'm in?

I couldn't help it and also tried this. It also didn't work for me early in the day. I just tried again and I can pay the deposit also!
