Did he give you any idea of what to expect?

I got the phone call from Darren this morning. Full ride plus an invitation to the scholars weekend Feb 26th. I'm really excited, and dreading my decision even more now. He said this round of scholarships are going out today, so be on the lookout.

I have Stetson and UF at 1 and 1A, I feel like it's really a choice between the two now. I'm waiting to see what FSU offers, but I don't think it will be enough to lure (sp?) me to Tallahassee. I applied to Duke, but I'm really just waiting for the ding. I know my numbers aren't strong enough for them. I will be withdrawing from UGA today or tomorrow.

I've got to say, this is exactly what I hoped for 4 years ago when I left a career and returned to school. There was a period some months back that I got caught up in TLS and felt like anything out of the top 14 was failure, but I feel great today knowing that I did exactly what I set out to do. I don't know how to put it into words, but it feels weird that law school is becoming something I'm doing in a few months, rather than "someday."

This gave me the chills! Way to go - with an attitude like that you deserve your full ride. I hope, if we both end up at Stetson, that I get to meet you.

I didn't get a phone call when I was accepted, only when they offered the scholarship. He is definitely the best admissions person I've talked to this cycle. I met him at their prospective student weekend and he's been very engaging ever since.

Congrats to those who have received the most recent full schollies. I guess I'll be seeing you all at the scholars retreat :)

I am very embarrassed and disappointed to report that I received a half scholarship. Darren really got my hopes up. Anyways, I cannot imagine this will help me in wishing to attend Stetson in the fall.

Oh well :oops: :cry:

When you said you were between Stetson and UF, it reminded me of one of my friends. She is currently a 1L at Stetson (full ride) and chose it over a scholarship to UF. She can not be happier. She absolutely loves Stetson, and feels like the school is much more personal. Let me know if you have any questions!

I understand that it sounds bratty, but I was lead to believe that I had a full ride in the bag, I would hand mine over to you if I could

It doesn't sound bratty at all. I'm really sorry to hear that you didn't get the full ride offer, especially after they told you to expect it. :(

Sorry, I missed this until today. Thank you for your kind words! If we both end up at Stetson we'll definitely meet. :)

Darren told me that they had overnighted my package on Thursday, but because I lived in (Far Northern Rural State), I shouldn't expect it until Saturday. I told him, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, that if any piece of mail reaches me within a 3-day window of when it is projected to, I considered it a miracle. Sadly, my words came true. I did not receive the package either Friday OR today :(. So, did everyone get their scholly info by FedEx? Or was it just Priority Express USPS for some?

5523 Glad to hear that your friend was happy with the decision UF is also one of my top choices so that's good to know. Have you heard anything yet?

So I got a half scholly. Does that mean I can't go to Scholar's retreat?

I am really glad to see the enthusiasm on here for Stetson. I am only looking at Florida schools and since I am well above the median age (will be 38 by the time I start school) I think Stetson seems like a great option since I live on and love the west coast of Florida. So congratulations to you all. Please keep posting about how it is once you get there.
