I requested to tour the campus about 3 weeks ago, but heard nothing back until yesterday. So I'm not sure if this is a good sign for me as they are considering admitting me, for everyone still waiting as there is some movements, or it's just no big deal as I'm thinking too much.


I would not consider this any indication. They are flooded with emails I know becaUse I sent in a change to my application and didn't hear back for three weeks, and only when I called did they reply to the email. In other news, last 4 nights I have had dreams about rejection from law school and I've gotten like no sleep. This process is taking a toll on me!

I hope it's earlier, but I think you might be really close.

Has anyone heard anything? Could they have possibly filled all of their c/o 2020 by now? Bugging out, this is the only decision I am waiting on. Just need an answer, regardless of what it is :?

Lsn says 310 matriculated so that has to be getting close comparing to previous years. Not sure how accurate or up to date that number is though.

LSN has said that for months so I do not believe it is accurate. Only a handful of people have switched their status to "attending" but that shouldn't really be considered accurate either for a number of reasons.

Has anyone received a response to their LOCI? I sent one after the hold email in mid-march and have yet to receive a reply. Thanks

I asked about whether I should send in a LOCI a few days ago to an admissions person, they told me those are only helpful if you were waitlisted, not put on hold, and they haven't yet waitlisted anyone ... so LOCI's are probably annoying them because they are irrelevant at this point in time.

They told you those are only helpful if waitlisted? They sent out that email a while back asking for them. This is aggravating.

Granted, this was a call from about 2 days ago.... the person on the phone also told me it was barely mid April yet (lol whaaaat) ... did I get trolled or is their admissions staff just this disorganized :shock:

I assume they'd discuss the semester in practice program.


They would definitely discuss the "Semester in Practice" program. I'm doing it right now in a large city in Florida. Basically, in your 3L spring you can spend your last semester working in any city of your choosing for credit. I know people in Miami, DC, New York, Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, etc. It's been really great! Plus, UF has a bunch of clinics. I did one earlier in my studies and had an awesome experience.

Tallahassee has more state government, but it's also practically in another state. I hated travelling from Gainesville for interviews and Tally would have been another 2.5 hours. Realistically, both schools are fine, but UF definitely has that "wow" factor, at least within Florida, and FSU, for better or worse, is the school people go to when they can't get into UF.

Trying to decide if I should just call and annoy them to see if I can get any info out of admissions. Think I'll just get the same "it's not mid-April yet" like they told brownellewoods?

I would advise against calling. Anybody that does is practically beating a head horse. I can only imagine how many calls they've gotten so far. I can also empathize with those of you waiting. I know it sucks but calling isn't going to do anything for you and more than likely just frustrate admissions.

its almost may and they gave zero rejections yet .... BOTH SIDES are frustrated. I still don't understand why they hold applicants with 130 lsat scores and 2.0s. Even if they cured cancer, they do not have the work ethic for law school.

I mean I can only imagine this is how the review process would go:

Admission member #1: Hmmm this candidate only has a 2.0 GPA and an abysmal 130 LSAT score ...
Admission member #2: But it says here, he cured cancer, maybe we should admit him anyways?
#1: But his GPA indicates he is a slacker and his LSAT score reveals he isn't fit to think like a lawyer
#2: BUT HE CURED CANCER
#1: Yes, that's outstanding but I don't think he is law school material
#2: BUT HE CURED CANCER!!!!
#1: But how about that person with a 159/3.5 we put on "no decision" back in September?
#2: THEY CAN WAIT... this guy cured cancer! Quick! Press the emergency scholly button.

You are hilarious! I hope the admission office is not having this conversation. It sure adds some humor to this endless frustrating waiting game.

So I called and you could tell that admissions was getting a little irritated by the calls/email. This is exactly what I said, "Hello, I received an email about month ago saying decisions would be out mid-April, but we're now near the end of April. So, I just wanted to know if decisions would be coming out soon or if there's a new timeline on those decisions?"

The lady actually agreed that we are in late April, but said the email probably said expect a decision in mid-to-late April (it doesn't but whatever). She just said keep checking ASO as that updates instantly whenever they make a change.

After I hung up, I went to check the email because I didn't remember it mentioning anything about late April. Lo and behold, it says, "We hope to release more definitive decisions (admit, waitlist, deny) no later than mid-April." Props to them for using the word "hope" to not really follow through on their own updates.

At this point I won't be attending UF, as I have accepted a generous scholarship offer elsewhere and signed a lease today for an apartment near that school in the fall. I don't want to withdraw my app just yet because I've waited too long to never really know what decision I would get.

Thanks for taking this one for the team. Where did you decide to go instead? I have one pretty steady offer at Emory and another T13 WL I will try to get off with every strength I have left in my body. But I'm really sad, because UF was one of my top choices, and I wish they would just say something...

Does the admissions staff work on the weekends? If not, I have a hard time believing they will somehow get back to every on hold priority deadline applicant within 6 days.........
