Try 5.5 months


That's rough. I went complete on 1/28, and I am currently UR. I wonder what their process has been for you guys to have been waiting so long.

I'm guessing it's just that applications with the highest numbers get reviewed first.



I don't think so, I know someone with my same LSAT/gpa that is still waiting to go UR and I applied 3 months after them and have already heard back

Maybe we won't be hearing back today. Looking at past threads, they've usually started calling people by this point, right?

Does anyone know if FSU sends denial via snail mail? Status checker changed to "decision made will arrive by mail". Can't possibly fathom why they won't alert me with the handy STATUS CHECKER they use.

I'll likely be withdrawing soon with a full scholarship. I hope it goes to one of you hopefuls!!

Same boat. Figured it was a denial though from reading previous threads.

Add one more to the "Decision made and will arrive by mail" club. So we're thinking it's likely a denial? What an odd thing to do if that is the case. I would be fine with a simple email if my application is denied. And it makes more sense economically to deny by email and accept by mail. Oh well, someone gets paid a lot of money to make these decisions, they must have reasons... right? lol

Update: I did see a few posts from previous years where people claimed they received a status update indicating a mailing and did not receive and acceptance call but were still admitted through the mail. Still hope.

I don't know if this means anything, but the paragraph at the top of my status checker is gone. It used to have the paragraph saying all apps complete by March 15 will get a decision by the end of March. Still stuck at complete though :roll:

Edit: I'm pretty sure there was a date next to current status date and now that's gone too.

I just got very excited because I saw an email from FSU Law Admissions in my inbox!

It was just an invitation to follow them on facebook. :roll:

for those of you freaking out,

I had the same thing, "Decision made and will arrive by mail."

I received an email that evevning saying the following:
Congratulations on your acceptance to Florida State University College of Law! Your acceptance packet is on the way to you by mail. As a member of our Scholarship Committee here at the College of Law, I am pleased to invite you to apply for one of our 1L Law Scholarships on the basis of your outstanding credentials.

I was relieved after that. Good luck to you all.

"Shit on?" Really. lol UF is not a T13....or even a top 30...These are the 40's were talking about...There's hardly a difference between #40 and #49.
The legal market in Florida is really going to come to a halt for FSU grads because UF went up 4 spots. Lol. :roll:
