When did everyone apply?
i applied 2/22
I applied 2/27
I applied 2/17. Got verified 3/1
Anyone else status change to pending decision this morning?
Do many people come off waiting list? Thought I had a good shot but just another WL!!
I applied 2/13 completed 2/29, still waiting on decision and application is "in progress"
Just got a status update saying decision pending. (its 4/3 in the afternoon)
MrAdobo, did you get a decision within a few hours from the decision pending update?
I applied 2/22 and got email that app was under review on 3/5
@PrincessCupcake108: yeah so decision pending happened yesterday at 4 pm and then this morning it changed in my lawhub to admitted. Then like an hour later I got the email from them
When they say 6 weeks they really mean 6 weeks lol
Anyone know where to send a LOCI? They have an automated robot on their website for "updates", but I don't think thats very formal
Does Stetson negotiate? I would love to go since theyre super close to my aunt in Florida but could not afford it with their offer
waitlist people- did anyone send a LOCI?
Sent the LOCI to lawadmit@law.stetson.edu and the person who sent the WL email. They will also give you a survey to complete and schedule a meeting with admissions to go over WL process
@MrAdobo: yes they do :)
Hopefully we will see some movement on the waitlist soon
Anyone seen movement on waitlist yet? 6/6
I emailed them because I was accepted into a T50 with a scholarship and asked for an accelerated decision and they immediately rejected me
6/7 - I haven't seen or heard anything yet... stressed ~
I just want to know where I will be living these next 3+ years
I see a status changed from wl- accepted i hope its me soon
My application is still incomplete, as I wait for the June score release. So, I probably have zero chance to get in. I doubt I improved my LSAT the way the LG games went. Might test again without the games and apply very early next year
Just saw a Reddit post where someone said the waitlist is over 500 rn...Can anyone confirm? That seems pretty wild to me.
anybody applying as a transfer?
Any movement?
Yeah, 500+ people on the waitlist seems pretty crazy, especially since they just added me to it today. I believe that # though. I would think they'd be sending us rejections right away with that many already on the list. But people apply so broadly these days, they probably get many that have no intention of attending.
