In via phone call just now! So excited!!! I also got an email about applying for their merit scholarship. I went to FSU for undergrad, so if anyone has questions about Tallahassee, let me know.

could you let us know when you get that email regarding the scholarship?

So my status changed from Under Review to Decision made and will arrive by mail today. But I haven't received a phone call? Has this happened to anyone before? Should I prepare for a WL/Rejection?

LSAT - 162
GPA - 3.16

Oh good. That's what I'm hoping. I just hate waiting, thanks for the reassurance! Haha

Congrats to everyone who got in. I was accepted Thursday night as well. 3.74/156 non-URM. Went complete 11/19, went under review 3/5, and got the call 3/6. I think that puts me pretty high up the board for longest wait for an applicant during this admissions cycle. I am not complaining though, rather accepted than any of the other options. For all those people out there still waiting, 100 plus day lag time between complete and a decision is not impossible.

I'm assuming there won't be any movement this week since it's spring break? Or will admissions still review apps since it's getting late in the cycle?

In the UF thread, links posted show FSU dropped out of T50 for LSAT/GPA medians.

Everyone here will tell you to retake, but you really should consider retaking. I had a 152 from the October LSAT and upped my score 10 points in the February LSAT. Just realize, that you can totally change your LSAT and law schools take that into consideration. I would say you have a 20% of admittance. Your GPA is around median, but your LSAT is lower than the 25%. Check out lawschoolnumbers.com for more references on applicants.

Appears FSU has overtaken UF. Congrats guys. Hopefully means we get to stomp you in football next year though.

Ah man, I hate having to go through the application process again and having to ask silly paranoid questions, but it's almost 4 AM and I have nothing else to do while looking at my "Decision Made" status. So here goes... Def Ray made mention of this, but are most people getting phone calls a few days after their decision is rendered on the status checker? Annnnnnnd question number 2, does anyone who has had their decision made have missing check marks in the boxes next to some of the required documents?

My numbers reflect a fair amount of admits numbers but somethings on my application stand out in a frightening way, which is why I got scared when my application flew through the process so quickly.

My app went to decision made and I haven't received a phone call either. The other day all my required documents changed to seat deposit, decision statement, residency forms, etc. I'm not sure what to think at this point, but from the sounds of it...I think we were accepted. But I have no idea at this point.

So I didn't get a phone call at all. On Friday, my status changed to Decision made, and on Sunday or so, my requirements list changed. But, today I got an email saying congratulations on my acceptance and to apply for need-based scholarships.

Anndddd...I just got the call. lol

Tomorrow marks three months since my application went complete. It's still just complete. The tracker says we should have our response within three months. I'm getting slightly concerned. At this point, I'd just like to know either way.

The status checker says applications are reviewed on a rolling basis depending on strength of application. I only went complete on the 5th but haven't went under review yet. I contacted them Tuesday morning to see if applications would still be reviewed this week even though it was spring break and they said yes and I should hear back within 3 weeks. So maybe contact them and try to get a timetable? If your numbers are borderline acceptance then they might just be holding your app without putting you on the waitlist. Looking at LSN they've only rejected one user and put zero on waitlists.

My gpa is <25% and I have a 162 for LSAT so I'm either at or above their 75% depending on the new numbers. I'll post here when I go under review/get a decision and if your numbers are around that I would definitely contact them by then.
