Any feeling on whether this batch will be acceptances or rejections?


Maybe both? Hopefully acceptances - didn't they just send out a round of rejections?

A batch went out this past Wednesday. No word yet on those.

Two Fridays ago they sent out a mixed batch, yet acceptances took about 2 days longer to arrive (did they mail them a little later?). My guess is that this time they split it into two pieces - Wednesday and Friday.

But what do I know? Just a wild guess. I might be getting my rejection come Monday....

I know, I'm part of the Wednesday batch. All of our numbers kind of overlap - there is no real indication over which "decision in transit" day will be getting the acceptances and which will be getting the rejections. If they even do it that way this time.

This waiting is beyond torture.

Looking at our profiles, all rejections and, perhaps, a few wailtlists is my guess.

164/3.2/OOS/non-URM

At this point in the game, I don't think there is anyone with superstar numbers still pending. Everybody is pretty much in the same boat and what it comes down to now is the soft factors IMO.

Does anybody know what UF has generally looked for in the past in terms of softs? Tough question, I know, but as far as what we do know--- they like high GPAs. If anyone has an insight it can at least be something to consider for what will probably be the one of the longest weekends ever for many of us!

To be honest, your odds had to have been way worse than 50/50. I don't mean to be disrespectful - really there's no way around it - but given the smaller class size a 150 at UF is much more than a surprise as many, many people with higher than that will be turned away this cycle.


What do I care - I have my acceptance. All it means to me is that that there could be a 150 in my section if I matriculate... goes from "beating a dead horse" to "I hope you're in my section."


If i decide to go to UF… actually, u probably wouldn't want me in your section...unless it was to be study partners. i'm confident that i'll make really good grades in law school. Standardized test are not my thing... i personally think there's little correlation between lsat scores and law school performance.

I think there is some correlation but Im sure UF took you for a reason. In general a 170 scorer would out perform a 150 in law school but that certainly isnt the rule.

Still at "reviewed by committee; decision pending" since 3/17. Trying to decide if that is a good or bad thing...

Same, but since 3/5. I have given up stressing about it - whatever happens, happens. I'm sure we'll hear something in the next few weeks.

You should browse TLS more often then.. That statement was child's play compared to some comments on this forum! People are freaks when it comes to law school!!!!

I take that first statement back after seeing you have over 5,000 something posts on this forum --- but I also use it as evidence to support the latter statement.... lol

Someone I've talked to got rejected with a 161/3.5, which makes me really nervous since in previous years that should be an in. I think they were in last week's batch though.

Agreed. Just a personal opinion...to me, an lsat score is just a means to the end of getting into the law school you want to go to. Just registered of tls to wish people with lower scores luck, gheesh! =)
