the way ur spreading that link is just sussy, under lsd and random reddit posts and tried to dm me lol
Listen man, I have seen a bunch of reddit posts with admitted students links to chats and discords. I am literally doing nothing different. How else are you supposed to get people to join your chat? If you think its "sussy", whatever, it doesn't make it any less legit
In fact, if anyone in here is an admitted student, I invite you once again to join the Whatsapp chat: https://chat.whatsapp.com/JmySKk00BSaHnGD4gIqFHM
Since there are updates on admitted student days and tours
does fiu have a status checker
Just got an A
Is Scholly info sent in the same email or later? They didnt mention anything about scholly in my A email
so i was waitlisted about a month ago, got my lsat results today and improved two points. should i send a loci via email?
I think you should if you are still interested
Got an A, toured it and really loved it. Only issue is cost of living. the tuition is dirt cheap in state. All rent even with roomate is like over 1200
@WorriedGuardedPorcupine: same here, decision rendered and no email.
anyone have an app update?
@MantaPandaManta: any update?? good luck!!!!
visited and loved it
^ same. Having a hard time picking. FSU is taking forever im assuming its a R. This vs UNH vs a full ride to Faulkner. Idk what to do. Cost of Attending here is so much. Housing in miami sucks
i just got a decision rendered update wtf does that mean!!!
Me too, decision rendered. I’m spiraling rn
i dont even have a login for the status checker wtf
For me it took 6 days for them to send the confirmation email which included the log in info
@LegalBlondie: apparently if theres a seat deposit amount or whatever that means A
I don’t have any sort of portal except for the application status checker. @badbitty777 would it be there?
@badbitty777: ^
@LegalBlondie: is it the lawhub one? or the one where it says fiu at the top
To check your FIU Status use the one found on their JD Admissions page. It takes forever for them to send your login. Once they do you can login and see. If you are admitted, you'll see a 200$ seat deposit. It took them about 3-5 days before I was sent an acceptance letter but the deposit means that you have been accepted
@TeddyTy: they havent sent me login info and it says a decision has been rendered so i cant even check
Any idea when the first seat deposit deadline is? Just got my WL :(
@LegalBlondie: wow how with your stats! I'm sorry. The amount of WL this year if absolutely ridiculous. Seems like all they care about this year is 160< lsat... wonder if their recent jump in us news ranking has anything to do w this. Anyways, I dont know the exact date as I was also WL but I have heard april 1. Could be wrong though
@Rockxtar: Thank you for your kind words. They have a clear 159/160 cut off with the exception of a few here or there, defo due to their new rankings. So unfortunate as I feel as though my numbers dont define me and I would be an asset to the class :(
Anyone admitted, what are you doing for housing? This school is great but the COA is INSANE.
