Not sure yet JJ, I am really considering flying down there for a visit next week to make that determination. I was also accepted to KU today, so you can imagine my mind racing to create pro/con lists.

I am really jealous of all the people that just got $$ offers with their acceptances! I have been politely asking, hinting, and poking for a while now and was told the money is gone!

I do not think I will be attending. The in state tuition and the 10k is very tempting, but I just do not think I can turn W&L down.

For those that were accepted off the WL:
did you send anything else in (LOCI or Additional LoR)?

Forman, I did not send anything in. Hell, I didn't even send in the waitlist request form (although to be fair, it wasn't due until May 15).

I got this email today:
At this time, we have not received the Notice of Intent form from you indicating whether you will accept your spot on our wait list. The deadline for accepting your spot on the wait list is next Saturday, May 15th. Acceptances can be made from our wait list at any point up until August 13th as seats become available. If you are offered admission off the wait list you will be notified by telephone and email and you will have 48 business hours to accept your seat in our fall class. Below is a link to the Notice of Intent form for your convenience.


I was waitlisted and April and didn't respond, since I was choosing between to other schools I've been accepted. The other waitlists I've been put on have been opt-in not opt-out.

Anyone else get this message?

In at FSU with $15K, in at UF with $4K ... FSU it is, right? (I wanna practise in FL, and don't care where I live for the next 3 years).

I'd take the money and go to UF personally. The alumni base is much larger, which will help in hiring. UF grads seem to have an easier time finding employment, especially in the bigger firms in Florida. Otherwise, I don't think there is much of a difference in the schools.

You didn't get the joke, but it didn't help that I accidentally left out the "i".

Is there any hope of another wave of off-the-WL invitations? or if any more acceptances come will they dribble out slowly over the summer?

I think you will probably see after May 21 when the current round of acceptees have to make their decision by.

Officially turned down FSU's offer today. Hopefully it will go to someone from the forum. Good luck guys.
