Just got the acceptance letter today and it included a bit on establishing residency. Between that and the conversations I've had with the admissions folks, it seems like as long as you do what they tell you to do, you'll have residency granted.

Were you ever on "HOLD" with FSU?

Congrats on your acceptance!
Ya, the paper in the acceptance packet about obtaining residency makes it seem relatively simple. I am out of state and FSU is also one of my first choices right now.
I saw earlier in the thread that you are also out of state. Is FSU your first choice?

Yeah I think so. I am waiting till I visit to make a decision, so we'll see how that goes. It seems like everyone that visits really enjoys themselves though, so I think it's pretty likely that I'll end up there.

ya visiting definitely made me go from kind of liking fsu to loving fsu. i thought it might have just been because it was the first school i visited. but since then i have visited three other schools, and so far fsu has been my favorite.

Is there anything you did that you'd recommend while I'm in Tallahassee? I've got a visit with the school set up, but other than that I don't really have any plans.

i grew up in south florida, and only went to tallahassee a couple times while i lived there, so i don't know it very well. when i visited i stayed with a friend that is in undergrad there. she just drove me around the city, which didn't take too long since it's not that big of a place, and i looked a few different apartment options.

I asked FSU to hold off on reviewing my app until Feb lsat score was reported. Literally a day or two after the scores were in, I was accepted...if your new score is a substantial improvement, definitely get in touch with them to make sure they have it on record, as FSU always takes the highest score.

For those who are reasonable certain that they will attend FSU in the fall, there's a class of 2013 thread.

OMG 3 months of waiting and I am placed in the hold category!!!!!! So more waiting?! Well, at least I am not outright rejected, is it appropriate to send my LOCI now?

Held as well today. Any help from anybody who was once held then accepted would be appreciated. FSU is one of my top choices and I would love to get accepted.

Held as well (they told me via my e-mail). I'm guessing it's because they reviewed my app without my Feb. score. It should make a difference.
