I have been under review since 11/26 as well. low lsat/high gpa. Though my lsat is above their 25% and my gpa is way above their 75%. I do not understand what is taking so long. According to the figures/probability predictors, I was above 75% likelihood of being admitted. It's not looking like it now though.

well anyone under the lsat median isn't an auto-admit, so it makes sense it would take you longer

I believe I got the status check log-in/password thing a few weeks after submitting. I didn't ever get the email to pay for my app/fill out residency forms, etc. I wouldn't start worrying just yet if I were you though. If a month goes by and you don't hear anything I would start getting concerned.

Same for me, under review since 11-26.

For those of you accepted: did you do the optional diversity statement? As a white middle-class male, I feel that it would be kind of inappropriate to write it. However, they allotted an entire page of the application to it and seems pretty important to them.

I'm just curious as to whether they would look on an application worse if the statement isn't done. Has anyone got an acceptance without doing the diversity statement?

Ditto, under review since 11-26. All of my numbers are above their median.

I was accepted right around Thanksgiving without a diversity statement. Numbers above 75% though.

Also, for all those wondering, my online status went blank a few days before I received my acceptance letter.

Anyone knows when will UF begin to send out scholarship information?

Is anyone else's status checker empty? I just checked mine and there is nothing there anymore. Does this mean anything? I really hope so because I submitted my application back in October and a decision would be nice.

Mine hasn't changed one bit. They're probably still partying over last week's BCS victory. I heard even the law library closes on game days.

On Thursday, my status checker changed to "Decision in transit." As of yesterday's mail, still nothing. I feel like everything is running slow, from the process to even the mail!

Mine still says "all required documents received". I applied on Dec 13 and received the payment/checker info on Dec 23rd. I imagine I am at the tail end due to when I applied.

Ditto... my status checker went to decision in transit Thursday the 8th but nothing yet and I literally live 3 blocks from the law school.

Oh man, if yours still hasn't gotten there and you are only three blocks away, mine is NEVER going to come - I'm in DC!

Good luck!

my status has been under review for about a month now.
I applied in November but they wanted to wait for my December LSAT even though my Oct was good enough for them.
Now I'm waaaaay above their 75% on LSAT and right near the 75% on GPA..
So, yeah.. being an auto-admit doesn't mean you'll hear back right away.
Oh, and I go to UF for undergrad, if that also plays into it.

Question.

I applied to UF, and the certification page just said "skip to the next step" -- it also did not accept a credit card payment.

How did everyone pay? Just take it upon yourself to mail a check? Do they contact you?

They'll send you an e-mail later on with info on how to pay online.

They send you ane e-mail asking you to fill out some more information and pay the app fee. It took about two weeks for my e-mail to come.

I have been in the status of All Required Documents received since the middle of November. I called the office today and some girl who said she does not really deal with the law school told me I needed to send my UG transcripts directly to Florida. Did anyone else do this? Has anyone else been in this status for an unbelievably long time? Please let me know as soon as possible.
