Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
if you go below that ranking after the first year, then you aren't eligible for the scholarship anymore
if that is wrong someone please correct me! I just know for sure that it's a very strict condition in the scholarship
i got offfer from one school which tells me top 50%
i guess 70 is better than 50% right?
@Futurelawyer22: noo i think 50% is better
may be wrong tho
top 50% is a harder scholarship to maintain. It is better to be top 50% in terms of grades, but easier to stay in the top 70%
@TenseParchedHyena: thank you for clarifying!
@TenseParchedHyena: thank you!
any acceptance this week?
@Futurelawyer22: haven't heard anything yet, fingers crossed I hear back relatively soon with an Acceptance lol!

@GrubbyUnbecomingPrawn: how long were on the waitlist for and did they offer you any scholarship after being moved off the waitlist?
How long does it take to get off FIU's Waitlist? It says a decision was rendered, but there's nothing indicating one was on the Status Checker and I never received an email or call
check fees section. If seat deposit of $200 is visible, then admitted
