Tell us what's important to you
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
@Vinkevchi: oh wow thought they offer 10k scholarships if you score above 150.
I'm at 153 and they did not offer me anything @lawchick27
@Lawchick27: Yeah I have a 158 and I was not offered a scholarship. the only person i seen offered money scored in the 170's and with those scores they can go anywhere lol
I got a 149 this cycle and a 3.0GPA. Do you guys think I have a chance at FAMU?
I scored a 162, 3.3 gpa and they just accepted me and gave me 11k a year
But honestly, with the bar passage rate and the career prospects idk if it is a good choice to go to
@QuietUnknownChihuahua: I don’t have a choice but to go there. I cannot uproot my family.
How bad is this school
Anyone know when I’ll get my status checker info? I applied on 12/2 and I haven’t even gotten an application received email
When does FAMU usually render decisions?
Y'all if you haven't already, subscribe to law hub advantage! I just found out I got accepted a week ago, never got an email or anything
FAMU just updated my status tracker, but they never sent me log in info lol
I was admitted 12/25/23 through the portal. I still don't have an acceptance email or scholarship email. Nothing from them! Like i don't even know when seat deposits are due.
do you guys think I could get in? i am tryna go south for school
@DifficultEatableElf: Reach out to admissions and find that information out.
Did anyone apply between January through April and have you received a decision yet? I submitted my application this month so I know it'll take time to hear back
