Mine is also currently under review- I really can't believe it. I sent it in Oct. 31st (complete). I am hoping for the best, but expecting a hold/wait-list. I guess we will see. GOOD LUCK TO ALL IN THE SAME POSITION. FSU is my #1, so an acceptance would be a dream.

155 and 3.62 URM and in-state; I have OK softs (VP of an honor society, involved, etc.), but I know softs only do so much.
I would've retaken my lsat, however, I didn't have sufficient enough time to study again (30 hours/week at my job and full courseload).
I'm just keeping my fingers crossed.

Sweet, does FSU know that they are your #1 school and an acceptance would be a dream? It might not hurt to send a formal written letter to them at this point stating just that, and why FSU specifically would be great for you and why you would be great for FSU.

I got accepted a few months ago and I can say that everyone I've contacted at FSU is very nice and willing to help. Maybe even a phone call or schedule an interview so you can tell them yourself!

Anyways, just advice from another 0L so it's possible I'm just clueless. But if I were in your shoes I'd definitely let them know that they are your #1!

I may call, I don't know how much good it will do since they said a decision would be in by the end of the week. I really appreciate the advice though. If I do decide to call/write I will let you know how it goes :mrgreen:

I thought there was a second Admitted Students Day? Wasn't there one in April as well?

Got the stipend for the 21st.
Sure it's not a blank check (has some stipulations) but still, it covers gas and up to 50 bucks for hotel/motel.

FSU is pretty cool.

bummer. i'm 165/3.66. sounds not good for me.


With those stats I don't think you have anything to worry about!


no phone call (5:30 now over there) is making me pessimistic :/


what time did you receive your phone call at? (eastern time)

Nope. Called them again this morning and they said I should hear back "soon". Getting kind of frustrated...

EDIT: Just got an email from them... inviting me to APPLY. You gotta be fucking kidding me.

I've looked at the previous posts and it looks like decisions usually come out on Fridays. So hopefully we receive calls within the hour

Less propaganda, more decisions, FSU! On a Friday afternoon, nonetheless... Ugh!

Edit: If an acceptance follows that email today, all is forgiven.
