As someone who went to UF for undergrad and then spent some time in College Park while living in DC for a few years after graduation, I can say with confidence that College Park does not hold a candle to Gainesville. Gainesville has a far superior campus, nightlife, quality of ass, bar scene, etc. There were tons of Maryland people at the bars in DC every weekend, and I think it's because there were so few bars in College Park. While DC does have a lot to offer, there was no shortage of quality bars to attend at night in Gainesville that would have required us to go somewhere else.
On the other hand, I'm 30 now and I think it would be tough to spend 3 years in Gainesville at this point of life after living in NYC for over six years. However, I still consider Gainesville to be my second home and try to make it back for a football game every year. Also, from a guy's persepective, the undergrad girls love the law students...and it is without question one of the best looking campuses you can ever hope to find.
I'm not sure if this means anything, but I live in NYC and had to take my first test in CT becuase I decided to take the test relatively late. I was consistently scoring 160-165 on practice tests. The conditions seemed very good for most of the test, until a cross country track meet started outside our building filled with screaming and noise during the last section. I thought I had it blocked out until I got my score back and got 14 wrong on LR...my worst ever.
I took it again in December and got a 163 at Fordham under more quiet conditions. I'm not one to make excuses, but I think taking the test at a center where conditions are more predictable can make a big difference.
That is interesting. I sent my app in on 12/22 and the report was sent by LSAC on 12/30. I got my postcard last week and am trying to figure out how long it will take.
Do you think the financial aid info had anything to do with your submitting an application, or do you think it was a general mailing list distribution?
