Applied this weekend. Fairly high on my list, so we'll see. LSAT > 75th, GPA < 25th.

rejected at FSU via snail mail received today (Decision mailed on 12/04 according to status checker). LSAT is <25% and GPA > 75%, non-traditional (over 35 y.o.). I had a 50/50 chance of getting in according to LSAC, LSP had me at consider.

Anyone have thoughts on whether or not FSU is going to dip below the 160 mark anytime soon or at all?

Dip below the 160 mark?

Highly doubt it. With the flood of applications this year, LSAT medians are going to be going the other way at a lot of schools. I would think FSU would come in at 161, or at the very least, stay at 160.

Clarification: When are they going to begin accepting people who's LSAT scores are below 160. For example, my LSAT is a 158 and my GPA is north of 3.7. Am I going to be hearing back anytime soon, later, not at all?

Still incomplete, although it looks like I'm getting closer. Just my 18a/18b docs missing and those have been last for everyone (even if they didn't have them).

C'mon, FSU. I know I'm a 'Cane, but I think we can work something out (at least around our mutual UF-dislike ;)).

But if the median is 160 or 161, FSU would have to admit some below that...

If FSU wants my LSAT (above 75%), they'll need one of you reverse-splitters to balance out my GPA ;).

Gotcha -- I misunderstood. My apologies. I bet you'd have a pretty decent shot, with that GPA. I think FSU's 25th percentile is still around 156-157.

My guess is they'll wait on borderline candidates until they have a better sense of how the class is shaping up. I'm in the same spot for a number of my targets, hunkering down for a long wait..

Accepted today via phone call from the Dean of Admissions.

2.97, 165 (extreme extreme upward trend, military service, etc.)

This is my first acceptance, but FSU is probably either in my top 5 or very close to it, so I am excited!

So anyone get the email saying that Flor State's Christmas wish is for them to apply?
I already applied.
Maybe I should respond that my Christmas wish is for them to let me in, nowish.

Whoa how did you get a T-shirt?! I want one too!!!

Accepted a few weeks ago (my first one).... I'm so impressed by how friendly the admissions department is! I've love them even more if they sent me a lovely garnet and gold shirt...

Thanks FSU for asking me to apply. I have applied and have been complete since mid October. It'd be great for my holiday for you to review my application. Cross referencing would also be nice
