Anyone going to FSU's Scholars Day?

Postby mango26 » Sun Jan 24, 2010 8:56 pm

I've been accepted to FSU and it is one of my first choices so I feel like I need to visit. Plane tickets are really expensive to Tally though so I am waiting to hear back from a couple other Florida schools because if I am accepted elsewhere in the state I might just wait and do a week long spring break trip to FL.
Do you think I would miss out on much by not going to the Scholar's Day and just visiting on another normal day??

As someone that's had to travel to and from Tallahassee quite a few times, my advice would be to consider flying into Jacksonville and renting a car. It's a pretty easy two-hour drive to Tallahassee from there, and flights to Jacksonville tend to be a lot cheaper because the airport is so much bigger.

Just something to consider if you haven't already....

thank you iowagirl for the advice about flying into jax. i will look up those ticket prices.

headybrah, i got an invite to the scholars day via email a few days ago. i just got accepted the end of last week via phone call and just got the acceptance letter in the mail today. it did not mention $ in it, but i'm not expecting any. (163, 3.3, non-URM). even though i am out of state, fsu is one of my first choices for family reasons, so any $ would be extremely helpful.

I'm thinking of going. I'm in Gainesville, so the trip isn't a major haul for me.

By biggest concern is Dave Matthews Band tickets go on sale that morning at 10 am. Those concerts are a big part of my graduation celebration plans...

Seeing this thread reminded me that I should go ahead and RSVP. Does anyone know if getting the invite is an indicator of a likely scholarship offer in the near future 8)

did any of you receive additional information about scholars day...besides what is in the invitation? what are you wearing? i'm assuming it's casual-ish? i don't know, haha

I think we'll get all the information next week since the event is at the end of the week. Perhaps they'll mention the proper attire as well.
