Did you get scholarship information included in your email? I also was accepted via email today but no scholarship information. Not to sound entitled but I would be a bit upset if I was given nothing. My LSAT is >75th and GPA between 50th and 75th.


You might get the scholarship later in an acceptance box! In November, I had gotten an acceptance email then the box a few weeks later (maybe 2 weeks, I don't remember).

How did it go for you? I have narrowed down my choice between two schools, UF being one of them.


Yes the scholarship offer was with the acceptance email. My LSAT and GPA are both at their 75th percentile as well. Best of luck man!

Anyone who tried to negotiate scholarship offer up heard back? Maybe it's just me me but I didn't even get an acknowledgment after I sent a letter to them weeks ago.

Checking in, just submitted today. I know it's late, but I just decided to send in an app here for that sweet sweet in state tuition.

I'm also wondering about this. Was admitted last week with 90% scholarship, but interested to know if anyone has been successful in negotiating any higher than what they had initially been offered. 100% would be amazing.

Is the UF admissions office open on the weekend? My application went complete yesterday (Saturday) and under review today (Sunday).

I have been "review complete- no decision made" for over a month. I know they are waiting to see how my app compares to others. Am I just being impatient or is the fact I've been waiting this long effectively a waitlist?

I am in the same boat and I went to visit UF last week. The girl who gave me a tour said she was on the "no decision made" status until April. It is somewhere between being on the waitlist and under review. The difference is with no decision made, they are still reviewing your file and comparing it to other apps. On the waitlist, they won't look at your file again until they know how many more seats they have left over to give out.

It's not really comparable to being on the waitlist. I applied in october and was "no decision made" until December and got 90% scholly.

I'd like to hear about people successfully negotiating with UF because I'd consider going at full (I like Florida, wouldn't mind working there, and have relatives in Gainesville), but I just wonder if it it looks silly to try to nickle-and-dime them.

I applied in early december and was at "no decision made" for 4-5 weeks and then got accepted with 70% scholarship so not necessarily the waitlist. Just how they're doing it this year.

If your initial offer was 90% you have a shot a negotiating depending on your numbers and other offers. They can be convinced if you emphasize your ties/love of UF and Florida. If it looks silly it's because you're framing the negotiation in a silly way.

That's reasonable. I guess there's no reason not to take a stab at it.

Negotiate that. They'll bump you to over 50% if your stats are right.

If you look in last years thread Grant Keener (from UF) was posting during the cycle. Someone posted what he told them “Yes, we offer scholarships at the same time as admission. Students who are not offered an award may, of course, email a request for further consideration. It is especially helpful for us to receive information about offers received from our peer schools. To be clear, not everyone who requests a revision gets one, but there is absolutely no harm in asking!

It looks like Delphine Byrd may be the one to contact since she is now the Assistant Dean for Admissions. I'm sure others on here can tell you the right way to tell them how they're a top choice etc. There's probably a separate thread just on scholarship negotiations. Good Luck!
