ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

I went to Tulane and I was living down there when the hurricane hit. I am writing my personal statement about the experience. I have 2 pretty good LOR. I am also an in-state resident for both Florida schools. Graduated top 15% at Tulane.

I applied through LSAC so all were sent/recieved the same day.

I found it really difficult to put law schools in any particular rank so I did groups 1-6. (1 highest)

FSU said I was part of the "highly competitive" group of applicants but due to the large volume they could not make a decision at this time. I guess thats a defferal even though they dont have EA/ED.

$17,400 Scholarship at Syracuse

Maryland was expected but they were so bitchy about the recommendation despite the Hurricane. They were complete bastards. Good Riddance.

Going to my first choice, UF!

- partyguy708
  • Yeah you're probably right
  • Sunday, February 05 2006 at 03:46 PM

It really angers me with FSU especially since I'm in-state.

UF is a bitch about residency. They pulled that crap with me. I haven't responded yet and don't really know if I'm going to.

I probably overeacted a little but I honestly thought I would get more. That being said Syracuse is competitive but not compared to Pitt or Tulane.

Yes I have asked several times with the Law School and Registrar and no one will respond. So I honestly have no idea on whether I'm a resident or not.

  • good job on houston

sounds like you're having a difficult time w/ UF as far as residency too....I've been here since the middle of August and they sent me like 3 letters asking me 'what other ties' I have to Florida(?!?)....I sent them copies of EVERYTHING, but they still haven't notified me about my residency status. I've even tried emailing them again. Before I moved here, I called admissions and was transferred through about 5 people before I finally talked to someone who knew...they, at the time, said I would be considered a resident if I moved to FL by Aug 22, 2005. (apparently the cutoff date). But, who knows...they really are being difficult! Good Luck:)

Yeah I just kept emailing them and they never responded until recently that I was being treated as a resident. I always that I would eventually be declared one. My Mom has been a resident since the mid 70's. I was born in Florida. My parents own two properties in Florida (one from the early 80s). Despite all this they still gave me a hard time. Did they give you residency eventually?

When did you get off of the deferred part of fsu? You have listed 12-10, but that doesnt seem like much of a deferral. Im kinda wondering if they just recently admitted you. Thanks
