Ahhhh my status tonight changed to pending decision…. Scared!
Got waitlisted. Does anyone know if there is a high likelihood of getting off the WL and accepted?
mine still says pending verification.. its been over a month
Anyone have luck negotiating scholarships? Raised my LSAT by several points but was denied a raise in scholarship amount
@Semi: why did you not apply FIU and UF? also stetson is qway too expensive even with a 1/3rd scholarship. looks like if thats what you got, i can cross it off my list
@FlutteringSqueamishPuffin: Honeslty it came down to location. UF was too far out of my stats range, and growing up down in south Florida I hated it and never want to go back lol
Considered both FIU and Miami, but just the location was enough to make me look elsewhere
@Semi: that is hilarious. good luck with FSU!!! im touring FIU in 2 weeks. ANy thursday now i should hear back form FSu, hopefully ill see you there
You as well! Good luck!
This is absolutely insane how long this is taking. Look at the list of applicants. They are still on november.
i finally got the email that my application was ready and sent to the admissions office, up to 6 more weeks now
just got the A! do we know if the scholarship amount listed in the status checker is for 3 years or 1?
It’s per year
@Semi: yo! what was your FSU interview like? What kind of questions did they ask? did it go well???
They never actually invited me to do it, you sign up for when you’re waitlisted but it doesn’t guarantee you’ll get it 😔
@Semi: damn man fingers crossed for you. I only got 5k to stetson this is 100 percent off the table. FIU or my T4 full ride for now. Praying one of my reaches lets me in
seeing people with 3 or 4 point lower lsats getting quintuple my scholarship because they majored in marketing is so infuriating
Feel exactly the same! Seems to be all gpa based their scholarships
has anyone else's application status been received and not complete for like a month
Mine finally got verified recently. It takes forever honestly.
@Semi: Congrats on South Carolina!!! Good luck!!!!
How long did it take for your applications to get marked as complete/verified?
@FlutteringSqueamishPuffin: thank you!
@LegalBlondie: exactly 3 weeks. i was being dramatic when i said its been a month. but it was definitely the longest it took for any school
@Filthadelphia: I'm under review! Took 14 days to be marked complete
@LegalBlondie: LOL i'm back because i didn't even see mine in the review period--it just says pending decision now. sent 1/18, complete 2/8. today is 2/20
