Sounds like she doesn't know what she's doing.

You don't have to send your transcripts separately from your LSAC report. It sounds like you didn't speak with the most knowledgeable person.

Thanks, I emailed the admissions office and found out I was fine. I guess the girl just wanted to make me freak out for about half an hour.

I sent my app in last Tuesday, Jan. 6. I have yet to receive an email telling me I am complete or how to pay the app fee. I know the priority deadline is Jan. 15. Since I have already sent in my app but have not yet gone complete, am I considered as a priority applicant?

Aaaaahhh...today I checked my status and it went blank so my heart skipped a beat and I thought I would be getting my decision soon. Now I checked it and it said that I'm still under review. This is so frustrating...I applied in October.

I really just want them to let me know if I got in or not (preferably that I got in). :(

i wonder if they are going to give each application the intense examination they usually do since they are so far behind or will there be more than usual auto rejects coming....

So, I'm annoyed. I tried to login with the username and password that UF sent me and it won't work.
:x
None of my interactions with this school have gone as planned. Despite being a huge Gator fan, I'm not thrilled with UF Law so far.

I don't think you're alone in this. I've seen more gripes on this board about UF than any other school. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the state of Florida spends less on education per resident than any other state in the country. Or maybe it's just coincidence.

That stat doesn't say too much though. They have a large number of old people that move to the state late in their lives.

Mine works. You should call them.

I have more beef with Florida State than UF. Florida State, you SUCK. I applied before Christmas...and have heard jacksh** from them. I called this week and the lady told me that I'd "hopefully be complete in two weeks." What the hell...so slow...

Being undergrad at UF, I didn't have high expectations for my interactions with them and so far they're pretty much meeting that, but nothing too terrible.

I've actually had a much more pleasant experience with Florida State. I went complete almost immediately but it was about two months until I heard anything back from them. Maybe the volume of apps have gone up after Christmas? I've heard that they are generally pretty slow with the reviewing process, but they've been much more helpful with information than UF.

Does anyone know if it is mandatory to fill out the supplemental information/residency info website before they can give you a decision? My status checker says all documents received, but I haven't filled out additional stuff on the site.

If I remember correctly, you must fill that out immediately (the residency form and the supplemental stuff mentioned in the email they send requesting your app fee). Your app won't be complete otherwise.

Well, Florida sent me an acceptance letter today. I guess the turnover wasn't that long, but it was annoying to not be able to log in. lol

When was your status updated with decision in transit?

I'm still "under review by committee". Went complete on 11/26, with LSAT just above median and GPA above median. I feel like they've forgotten me. There doesn't appear to be much rhyme or reason to the order in which they send decisions.
