Your numbers are near the median for both. If you really want UF over FSU, I don't think you should just give up now. When is FSU's seat deposit due?
Its due mid April, the 17th I think and UF is saying theyll let everybody know hopefully by end of April
I got 65% to got to FSU so I thought Id definitely at least get in to UF but now Im thinking not so much. I could see a couple months but this is just crazy.
Yeah, I would definitely wait until you absolutely have to put the seat deposit down for FSU. You still have 6+ weeks, which is an eternity in the admissions world. A lot of the cycles for all schools seem to be volatile this year--- people with above average numbers who applied in Oct haven't even gone under review, while people with lesser numbers who applied in late Jan have gotten in with $$. So I would just stay the course for now, as frustrating as it is, but keep a number in mind that you'd need from UF for negotiating purposes and/or to be able to make a quick decision if needed. Good luck!
ugh I know its just so frustrating I applied early so Id hear back earlier and plan and make decisions right away. Im trying to be patient but its hard to stay positive this long. Thank you!!
I feel your pain. I have not just myself to move, but a wife, daughter, and pets, so we pretty much have to buy a house. That's a fairly long process and I'd love to have my decisions soon.
Just try to take comfort in the fact that since you haven't gotten a rejection, they're still considering you. I got two rejections relatively quickly from other schools, so at least you're not in that "not a chance" pile.
