not a problem... I'm sure we'll revisit this topic in the very near future.

I got a rejection at Tulsa and then weeks later received emails about how I can now check my status online to 'see where in the process' my application was.

Yeah, what a dick. He put that "Unsubscribe here" link in the email for no good reason. You should file a restraining order against him.

Let the man do his job. If you don't want to hear it, unsubscribe, delete the email, and be done with it.

Steve Jones... from the Sex Pistols? What is he doing working at Florida Coastal?

I was kind of mad at first and I think he can do a lot better job of what he's trying to do, but the man's got a job and he's doing his best. I think the first thing he should do is target some more realistic numbers - there's just no way he's getting 165+ applicants. In reality, a 156 does as much for him as a 180. These are the people for whom Florida Coastal's scholarships might be a decent deal.....

I am not going to give him grief for recruiting, and he does give it that personal touch. The emails were annoying (especially today's guilt trip message about how i did not reply to last week's email), but my girl friend (who is pre-med of all things) suggested i check for a "unsubscribe button" and low and behold there was one. Then i felt like an ass for complaining about solicitation i could have stopped long ago.

Oh god, so it seems that I'm not the only one. I want to write back and say "No, I don't want to attend your shitty ass TTTT so that I can graduate with 150k debt and make no more than 35k upon graduation, so F*** off and have a nice day"


Every couple days, MTal reminds me why I can't stand him


Nescer just look on what he wrote, and then take into account his GPA (2.66). And then, just appreciate a biggest case of denial on TLS.

We should be nice to Steve Jones. You never know. This guy could be the gatekeeper at Harvard some day. We disrespect him now, he could disrespect our kids in the same fashion.

That would be a funny comeuppance. :mrgreen: 25 years from now, having to explain your kids that they cannot attend Havard because you weren't more civil to a guy working for a small for-profit law school in Florida.

I wrote him back a very polite email explaining why I was not considering FCL as an option. He replied late on a Friday night--like 1AM. As others have said, he's just doing his job. I think he deserves credit for personally (and exhaustively) contacting applicants. T4's are a hard sell and he's got a tough job recruiting students. I don't see a point in responding rudely to him, or ignoring his emails when I could just as easily send a polite one. I don't care if it's Steve Jones from FCL or TS from HLS, I believe in treating everyone respectfully.

I think TLS should give Steve Jones, the "Man of the Year" award.

TITCR. I did the same, politely explaining that I had been accepted into schools closer to the areas I wanted to live and practice.

A couple years later...

Steve Jones sent me many messages... Even said I was Pre-Approved for Florida Coastal... well, I am waitlisted.

who? Steve Jooones. I gave him a call, left a message, and he called me back during lunch. Our conversation was 30 seconds: "the admissions office will contact you if they need anything (to get you off the waitlist)"
