Anyone applying through secondary pool is, at best, a waitlist. That's according to UF's website-

"2. SECONDARY APPLICANT POOL
Secondary pool applicants, including those whose incomplete applications are carried forward from the priority pool, will not be considered until all applicants from the priority pool have been considered. Because it is possible that the fall 2010 entering class will be filled from the priority pool, it is possible that secondary pool applicants may only be considered for placement on the fall 2010 wait list.

Has there been anyone that went DLIT on 3/16 or 3/17 that was anything other than a WL?

Anybody besides FlowB and me still RCDP?

Anybody want to speculate what happened to our apps/what the hell UF is waiting for? We both went RCDP 2/16. We're both at 3.6, 163.

Last year there were a bunch of flat-out rejects with numbers higher than the waitlist set. Basically every decision after Mar. 20. Wonder if that's us.

Almost everyone will receive their decision tomorrow. Only a few got theirs on Friday.

We could go to the ASD and sabotage it. We'll pose as undergrad students and convince all the admitted students to withdraw!

In the end all, I have been told that you are supposed to go where you have gotten the most positive vibes from in the beginning. Because the fact of the matter is, whether your school is ranked 51, or 52, or any other number for that matter, you are the one that is going to have been to be dealing with the people and the environment at that school for the next three years.
The thing is, I got a personal phone call from FSU 2 weeks after applying letting me know they'd be more than happy to have me join them for the incoming class of 2010 and that a scholarship would be on it's way.
Since then I've had numerous amounts of phone calls and invitations from the law school and it's students. I guess it was always meant to be, and I'm totally content with that. I KNOW i've worked too hard to remain on any waitlist.
So, where will you be?



Well I only applied to six schools... three in early January - waitlisted at UGA and UF, held at Georgia State. Three more in mid-February - Tulane, Colorado-Boulder, LSU. Colorado is my new top choice, I would LOVE to move to Boulder. My fear is that, since I applied so late to Tulane and UC-Boulder, I should expect nothing but more waitlists. If UF and UGA have already filled their classes, I imagine that other 25-50 ranked schools are not far from doing the same.


Good luck at CU, I'm originally from Denver and I visited that campus last month, I was definately impressed. I told them to wait on considering my app until my Feb. score was released so now I'm waiting. LSU has offered me $ and they "re-submitted my application the scholarship committee," with my Feb score so I'm expecting more. I still cant figure out if UF has even considered my Feb. score which is crazy! Don't they want a 3.9/164!?

Thanks. I really don't think UF is considering your February score... apparently they are really strict about NO February LSATs. They seem to operate very slowly, and someone from the Boulder admissions office mentioned in an e-mail that March is their busiest month of the cycle because of processing February LSATs. I can't imagine how slow UF's process would have been if they chose to accept Feb. LSATs.

Good luck at CU to you too. Since they're considering your Feb. score you're clearly an auto-admit. I would even be alright with a WL from there as long as the decision came ASAP, so that I can squeeze a visit in before the end of the semester. I don't know that a visit really does you that much good in terms of getting off the waitlist, but I'll overanalyze the crap out of this stuff regardless.

I was in the secondary applicant pool and was accepted.

App submitted 1/21
App complete 2/4
Reviewed by committee, decision pending 3/2
Letter in transit (accepted) 3/5

160, 4.08 in-state.

It's undoubtedly harder to get in through the secondary pool, but not impossible.

(But then, this could just go to show that if you were complete in the secondary pool by 3/1, or the date that they could actually start considering you, and you had competitive numbers, you would hear relatively quickly.)

Welcome to the still RCDP club. I am holding out hope due to what I've heard about UF being behind in apps this year. And seeing as how at least some 3/16ers are wLs with better numbers than the previous batch, there may be no method to UF's madness. Other than driving us all crazy. At which they are succeeding.

was your acceptance this cycle? Congrats, but that would be contrary to UF stated policy. Unless all decisions were made on priority apps by 3/5.

So far all the 3/16's and 3/17's that got their letters in this thread have been in-state. All were waitlisted.
