Tell us what's important to you
FIU Admissions told me they will do a clearing of unclaimed scholarship funds in April, so some who didn't get $ might get some after all. They also said they are working to find some housing option for law students.
Housing is currently a mess for FIU. You'll have to bite the bullet and pay higher rent. I'm looking at signing for 1600$ a month but that's mainly so I can live on my own in a tiny studio. For those who were asking, the seat deadline is April 1st, I just had to pay mine.
ojh shit that is massive
if i attend i found housing where its shared off campus with other graduate students around 800-900 for the bedroom. not ideal but better than studio pricing
i got a full ride to faulkner. its tempting but i dont think i can really habe the career i want if i go to a school ranked 155
@TeddyTy: Thank you for letting us know about the seat deposit deadline!
I am still unclear, what is the tuition at FIU for out of state residents?
anyone heard of WL movement since the seat deposit date passed?
Admissions told me any WL movement will likely happen in May, but can be up to the first day of class
Guys, is too late to apply ?
@FutureAttorney20: Very late, and with a 148 they're gonna reject you anyways, just retake and reapply
@SuaveCrouton: I am retaking this weekend
Has anyone gotten off of the waitlist?
I haven't heard of any movement on the WL and a friend of mine spoke to Admissions and was informed that WL movement would start in May after the April LSAT results
Admissions told me WL moment will be in May
Damn that’s scary
I got in but not going. No $ and miami CoL is fucking ridiculous. Hopefully one of you get my spot!
How long were people UR FOR
for **
decision rendered but no seat deposit :'(
will i get the email tomorrow?
@BrownAdaptableLiger: how long ago did u apply? what r ur stats? and what was the decision rendered? some people have said decision rendered with no seat deposit means waitlisted??
Hi all, I applied just a week ago. Admissions told that the 160 threshold would determine if we got scholarships and GPA would help determine how much
Anyone accepted off the WL yet?
nope. Have not heard anything from WL. Anybody else?
Me neither
