Tell us what's important to you
their seat deposit deadline is too soon
@Vinkevchi: thank you!
Anyone here actually have intent to enroll?
@Misskayesq: do u have intent to enroll?
Yes, I did.
i saw that if u enroll you gotta decline other offers and withdraw seat deposit from other schools
Yep but I knew FAMU was where I wanted to be bc it’s my alma mater & my goal was an HBCU for LS.
when is the deadline to enroll again?
deadline is too soon
still waiting on other schools
aren't u guys scared to go to this school?
bar rate and employment rate is so low
I am scared, you can't beat the price but the school does not seem very esteemed...
I’m afraid of going to a school where my skin has been historically unwelcome and unwanted. To me, it’s not the school, it’s you. This is just 1 of the many products of FAMU who have achieved great things. https://law.famu.edu/newsroom/news-releases/famu-law-valedictorian-shanice-cameron-achieves-multiple-accomplishments.php
But definitely go where you will feel confident that you will have success and be happy that you attended. Good luck to you all!
has anyone gotten any scholarships from FAMU yet, or are they not going to give any out?
I have 3.55, 147, 4 years of WE, and a hell of a story
will famu accept?
@ChiBamaLawyerbae: with a 147 I honestly think you have a really good chance of getting into FAMU, write strong essays and you should be good!
@Futurelawyer22: what are your stats?
i have a question
has anyone applied with a 155 and a 2.7?
i worked full time during undergrad and had to take care of my sick dad and sister
I was accepted with a 2.9 and a 155 lsat, I retook the lsat and got a 158 to attempt to get into a different school, but I was accepted with a 155 a few months ago
@Vinkevchi: did they offer you a scholarship?
@Lawchick27: no scholarship. FAMU law is not know for giving out any scholarships really, but they’re pretty cheap so even at full price for tuition it wouldn’t be over $50k max for the whole degree in tuition
