Why don't we go crazy like the Georgetown thread about no letters in a week?

Went under review by committee today.... Any idea how long it takes for them to reach a decision typically?

In the interim, FSU will tempt people with scholarships with early commit deadlines.

Damn it! I had no idea FSU scholarships came with early commit deadlines. That can really mess up thing for me.

Congrats! Felicidades! I'm glad that people are hearing back from Florida. I'm hoping for some good news soon, but I'm still under review so in the mean time I'll try to find some patience.

They're usually pretty quick with scholarship offers that state you have to accept by March 15 or something ridiculous, but I've heard they're more than happy to extend into May.

Just a bush-league tactic pushing people to make a decision tbf.

"Reviewed by committee; decision pending"

My status just changed to this today. Did anyone who had this as their status previously hear any good news?

Yes, the admissions office seems to be ill-informed. My decision letter was "in transit" as of last Monday - when I spoke to an admissions representative last Wednesday, she said that the letters had not yet been sent and may not be until the following week (this week). When I spoke to an admissions representative today, she informed me that the letters were sent last Tuesday.

I live in South FL...no letter. Who KNOWS when they were/will be sent. I'm not impressed.

My status changed to this on 12/3 right around the time when the first wave of auto admits started rolling out. It appears that we have just been kind of bumbed to the next wave because of lower numbers. So, for now I would say it's better than a WL or rejection but obviously not as good as an acceptance.

I have the identical situation. This is pissing me off. I don't mind if they couldn't get the letters out until now....but don't say "decision in transit".

Btw, stats if you don't mind? I've heard some people say the early ones are auto-admits: my numbers would seem to fit the bill, but I can't help but be anxious (171/3.75).

You are right, it does say it will come by march, I didn't pay much atention to the letter. By the way we are number twins (I hate that twin stuff) but we are.

Yes, it seems that we're auto-admits. 168/3.84, although I retook last Saturday.

Are you kidding?! Those are definitely auto admit numbers at UF. I hope you applied to most of the T14 as well.

Thanks. It's mostly the now 10-day wait that is making me nervous. I'm also going to stay with my fiancee, who is going to dental school, and UF is one of the schools she got into. So, I certainly hope that it's trivial; however, this decision is very important to me.
