Hey guys! I sent my application December 23, but I guess because of the holidays it took awhile for them to check! I went under review Monday the 9th, got my status checker page the 10th, and just received the acceptance email today! Go Panthers! Hang in there everyone :)

Same thing, I got rejected in November and will redo the LSAT as well for them to reconsider, hopefully I can score above my 155 so they can take a second look lol! Good luck to all, especially those of redoing to LSAT just for FIU 🤣
I applied here in Oct, and followed up with admissions twice - never got a status checker, and never got a response from admissions. Its as if they took my CAS fee and I never applied? Any thoughts? Every other school went fine

@VictoriousObesePelican: if you haven't already, I would call the office

@VictoriousObesePelican: also check your spam and junk if you haven't already
Did anyone get a decision rendered on their status checker?
Is it true if you dont have a deposit amount then its an R or WL?
23:10
@NineKnowingSnail: it’s true unfortunately, when I got decision rendered I had no seat deposit amount and I was rejected, here’s to hoping my new LSAT score is higher than the 155 to give it another try lol! Best of luck to you!!
My status checker says decision rendered and shows a seat deposit fee for 4/1/23, so I'm assuming that I got in. Does anyone know if they do snail mail/e-mail/phone calls for decisions?
Same^ Does anyone know how long it usually takes for the actual decision after the application shows “decision rendered”?
14:10
they said an email! and it took max 24 hours to receive it once the application showed "decision rendered"

Okay, so January scores came out today and I was able to increase my score from a 155 to a 158, I'm going to ask FIU to re-evaluate me, do you guys think that a 158 gives me a fighting chance to get into FIU?
@Vinkevchi: Yes it absolutely does. It depends on your GPA as well but I think you have a good change. Good luck!
