Thanks for the info. I just got something in the mail yesterday that I need to fill out regarding applying for need based scholarships.

I'm also planning a trip down likely for early June.  It would be nice to find a roomate to live with.  Someone who went there sent me some links to apartment complexes that looked nice.  It looks like 1br's are about $700 a month.  While that's a lot less than my current NYC rent, it would be nice to pay a lot less during school.

What are you guys thinking about living?

Interesting....when did you get it.  They told me on the phone yesterday it would come in the mail.  This came after they told me the first time I spoke with them it would come via email.

Have you been there to visit yet?

Would you mind posting your numbers please?

Yes, my deposit is due on the first.  I'm going to send it in today I think.  Sorry to respond when you were talking about hold list, but the posted did say anyone.

Good luck to you guys.  Hopefully we'll be classmates in the fall...

I was admitted this week on Monday via a phone call and letter came yesterday.  It looks like I'll be attending...

Thank you also for the advice, and it's a good point about Nova.  There's never a guarantee that one will make law review and the firm representation tells the story.  What does UM have while you're scoring?

Oh, and to answer one person's question, I did manage to send in the $500 Nova deposit last looks like Nova SE just became my favorite charity.

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.....
