UF held off on making a decision on my application until my June LSAT score came in (I know, late in the cycle). Dean called and offered me a full-tuition scholarship on 6/28
Withdrawn 7/5

I ultimately decided FSU is better for my professional interests (PI) and my family life. Although I received more scholarship money from UF, my total COA would be less at FSU, and there are more opportunities in Tallahassee. It's finally over!

With your stats you should apply to more schools and try to get more from FSU!!

Thanks :) I did try to negotiate with FSU... once before my UF offer, and once after. I plan on practicing in Florida, so I am happy with my decision to attend FSU. I could wait a year and apply to better ranked schools with the possibility of getting in, but my personal career interests can be achieved through attending Florida State.
