Thanks for all the posts....I submitted my application on the deadline which I believe was 2/15. My college friend who is a lawyer in Florida basically forced me to apply at the last minute. Prior to that, I just couldn't imagine spending 3 years in Tali given that I went to Florida (all the Seminole *&^% is going to make me sick for sure).
I had a mediocre GPA of 3.0 at UF so I can understand why they negged me. My first LSAT was the first test I had taken in 8 years and I got a 153 and then I got a 163 second time out which was more in line with my practice tests. I believe FSU takes the highest, and probably weighed some good work experience in the application (even though I am convinced from this process that soft factors dont' count for much).
I have come to the conclusion that this is an opportunity that I probably can't pass up, but if I get into UM it will still be tough. I'm excited to save a tremendous amount in loans years two and three. It looks like I will be attending.....
