I finally got my gator skin envelope too... 5.7 index here (3.94/158)

I had been bracing for a ding from UF the way this cycle with them has been going... so this was a nice surprise.

I'm at work, so I haven't seen my mail yet. But i was a 5.7er also, so I'm hoping for good news. Does FL give out scholarships? Or offer in-state tuition to those are not instate? does anybody do that?

   First, I want to say thank you to everyone on this board for getting me through this most difficult process. I got into FSU about three weeks ago and was going to withdraw my app from UF today (Monday), to send FSU my deposit. After seeing the posts about the 40% thing and that letters for those who applied by the priority deadline would be going out this week though, I decided to wait a little bit longer. However, today I finally got in, and it is honest to god a dream come true for me. My uncle and aunt who I grew up with, and who are both alumnusís and current state judges, have inspired me a lot throughout my life, and I have always, always, sought to follow in their footsteps and attend UF.

   I went through a lot to get to this point, and believe the other posters who said that UF looks for diversity in their classes. I got a 148 on my first LSAT attempt, and last year, after applying to 14 schools (mostly 3rd tier, but a couple 1st and 2nd including UF), I did not get into a single one. I almost gave up on my dreams. I thought that no matter my scores, I would not get in anywhere because of my history. I dropped out of high school at age 15 after a bad domestic situation with my parents through childhood, some poverty, and having to move from place to place living with different relatives and the such. I was bitter, thinking that my past had caught up with me, and that my early hardships and mistakes would dictate the rest of my life.
 
   However, I retook the LSAT and got a 157, and my UGPA is 3.57 (5.6 Index). I did most of this myself, but without following the discussions on this topic and the board over the past two years about multiple LSAT scores and UF, I probably would have given up on my dreams. So thank you, thank you so much.

Congrats!  Fellow 5.6 admit here.  Anyone else still waiting?
