Disappointed is the wrong word...The fit wasn't right.

It seemed like a great time, filled with honestly enthusiastic students and faculty, but I found it TOO enthusiastic. I'm a little older, and it seemed like the K-JD paradise. I know tons of students will love this place; faculty softball team that plays students, weekly mixers, barely any gunning that I sensed, and a truly collegiate atmosphere were on display.

I guess, I just felt like I wanted something more "serious", but not in the detrimental sense that FSU is "not serious". They are (look at LST), just not the type of serious I'm looking for in my older years. The school seems like it follows a great balance of work/play, but I just don't enjoy FSU's version of fun. Whoever does, will have an awesome time, and most likely leave with a decent job.

Every professor I met was very approachable, and the mock class (tax class, lol) was engaging, in large part due to the excellent professor.

I hope so. My status reflects a decision made today also. I'm at >75th LSAT and <25th GPA FWIW. Some of the other posters here have strong numbers from what I've seen in their other posts. Plus, I would think denials wouldn't be issued until after Feb LSAT scores next week.

Of course, I could be wrong. Guess we'll see... Good luck guys!

Feeling optimistic. UF sends rejections only in e-mail and, judging by last years thread, waitlist notifications weren't issued until April.

Unless UF drastically changed their admissions system and is going with the bold move of waitlisting people in February, I would say this is a batch of acceptances.

Good luck everyone.


Just thought I would bump this for those of us who are reflecting "Decision Reached-Notice Issued" as of yesterday.

Looks like what SterlingArcher said has held up. Good news for us!

Also, this is a quick way to check if you are admitted (once your status checker says decision reached, notice issued). If they have you on file and you have a UFID, you're in.



Congrats to all the new admits. I thought I'd repost this from the last page so all you new "Decision Reached" peeps can check. If you have a UFID you are in. Just call the #.

How sure are we about this? I've seen other schools, like Ohio state, who issue ID #'s to all applicants.

EDIT: Also, my brother(who would know) says all UF undergrad applicants receive ID #'s. Though I never received one as a law applicant, the info doesn't exactly breed confidence.

I'm going to wait for the letter to come this week. Would hate to get my hopes up because I have a UFID and then find out it means nothing :?

You guys received a UF ID# with your application?

I don't recall receiving one. Also, I just looked through my emails from them, and don't see any mention there either.

Just received new, credible information that no denials have been issued, and waitlisting has not yet begun. Pretty much the same situation as last year.

So, if your decision was rendered Monday, you're in! Hopefully, scholarship info accompanies our letters.

Congratulations, fellow admits! :D

Hope you guys are all as pumped as I am!

I never got one before I was admitted.

On the acceptance letter, it says to accept your seat you need to create a Gatorlink account and to do that you need your UFID #. It then gives you the number I listed before as the way to find out your UFID so you can set up your Gatorlink. Worry not... if your status is "Decision Made" as of Monday, you are in. I've looked through years of threads and can tell you that admission decisions come in batches on Monday and waitlist and rejections don't happen until later in the cycle. Congrats!!!

Agree with all of the above. Congrats to you as well!

It seems like only a handful of admits have received scholarship info. Considering you've received your letter, and have waded through previous threads, do you know when the majority of scholarship decisions are reached?

This is complete speculation (based only on what I've read in UF TLS threads over many years so I can NOT guarantee the accuracy): UF is very stingy with scholarships because they believe and I agree that they are the undisputed best law school in FL and a great value. They usually (again... speculation) use major scholarships to pull people with both #s >75% (see the UF v. Emory thread) that would otherwise attend a T14+Vandy at sticker or an Emory with a little money.

It also seems that acceptances come out in order based on the LSAT. I wouldn't be surprised if everyone accepted yesterday had the exact same LSAT score.

I think the letter said all scholarship decisions are made by March 15.

Interesting, thanks for the info. It seems a few in the last batch had offers so hopefully that holds true for this one as well!

Maybe not. Their 25th percentile is a 156. Your GPA might save you.

That's a great GPA. Why don't you retake? Another 5-7 points would make a world of difference for you. Each school you applied to would likely offer you a substantial scholarship with a 160-162+.

You both are right-- I really should retake. I did an academic addendum for all the schools I applied to, but I will seriously contemplate a re-take. I, along with most of you I'm sure, absolutely dread the thought of the LSAT :cry:

OH, ANDDDD: congrats to all those getting their letters, I really am happy for you & really hope to be in your position eventually haha
