Thanks everyone for writing back on how Nova contacted you. The waiting is killing me but i know i just sent it in. That is the need for instant gratification of our generation and society so you can't blame me for being inpatient :-)

Everyone, if you are accepted to FIU or Nova and are not attending WITHDRAW PLEASE!!!!!!!!! Thanks!!!!!

My Nova Status checker still says "incomplete" but they have everything!! Is this just that it is not in review yet? should i email and ask that they have everything? wouldnt they notify LSAC or me if something was missing? Please advise!! Thanks!!!

2.27.09 My status checker says "with committee"!! The waiting is killing me. Does anyone have any idea how long this takes once it is with the committee?

Please withdraw withdraw withdraw if you are not going to nova or FIU. !!!!!Thanks :-)

3/20/09 Finally i can breathe !!! I am going to law school no matter what. I will wait to see what FIU says, i have until 4/20/09 to put in seat deposit. I am so happy I am going to law school!!!!!!!!

4/1/09 - Have not heard from FIU yet. when i was complete they told me about 4 weeks and that was 4 weeks ago since 3/3/09. Who knows? If anyone has any insight to their process please share. I am afraid to call up and see status.

4/7/09 Called FIU to see status and the lady verified completion date at 2/27/09 and that it could take anywhere from 6 - 9 weeks to hear from them. She did not specify whether it is 6-9 weeks from the completion date or from today. But who knows. Im sticking it out, I will be going to Nova but if FIU accepts me im there. THis waiting is killing me, i thought there would be more decisions now that the deadline on the 1st was over with. Any insight on this please share!!!!


4/10/09 IN AT FIU!!!!! Whoo Hoo!!!! I am so happy!!!!

Good luck everyone and i hope those who are attending p/t get in touch with me!! Ill keep checking this blog!!!!

Good luck in this cycle. What is your first choice?

Tuesday, April 15 2008 at 08:00 PM

Hi! Thanks for the congrats. I found out through their status checker. It said "Decision Made" and you have to go on the website and sign on to the Decision Manager. You should definetly apply to more schools! Your LSAT will really open doors. Good Luck!!!

Sunday, November 09 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hey, thanks for the congrats! As for the Nova status checker, they should have sent you an email acknowledging your application along with a user name. Hope this helps! :)

Wednesday, December 03 2008 at 07:00 PM

thanks. they sent me an email. they don't send any hardcopy documents. good luck!

Saturday, July 12 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for your good wishes. I am having an ok cycle, a lot of waiting though. I would like to tell you that i will be withdrawing from Nova on Monday, hopefully, this will help Nova hopefuls like yourself get in much quicker. As of now i will be going to the University of Maine. Best Wishes and Good Luck! AM

thanks, Best of luck.
Friday, February 06 2009 at 07:00 PM

Thanks for the comment. I know, this wait is awful! First my status said "incomplete" then "in review" now its "with committee" I dont know what it means but I'm hoping to hear from them any day now too. Good luck with your app. let me know when you find out!

Friday, October 24 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thank you! I got an email saying a decision was made on the status checker. I'm still freaking out about it all haha but I'm going Full-Time. I'm sure your acceptance is right around the corner, good luck!

Tuesday, January 27 2009 at 07:00 PM

hey sorry i just got your message. i found out about a month after i applied (i applied very early though). best of luck on your apps!

Thursday, August 14 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks so much for your kind words! Looking at your stats, I don't know why they're taking so long, you should have an automatic acceptance! Good luck with your cycle! I'm sure you'll be hearing something positive from them very soon. They'd be crazy not to accept you. What do you know about Nova? I went to visit St. Thomas last year, but I was dumb and didn't think to stop by Nova. What's your first choice?

Thursday, July 17 2008 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the kind words. I was definitely considering Nova but I have spent just about every last cent I have on the apps and the whole preparation process.Right now I'm just keeping my fingers crossed. Good luck on your cycle.

Hello, on the 14th, FIU is holding a FALL 2009 ENTERING CLASS RECEPTION. The title makes it sound like the event is only for admitted students. If I were you, I would call them and ask if you are welcome to attend anyway. What do you have to lose? Also, if your file is complete, perhaps they will rush some decisions in before the event, for maximum attendance.

No Prob
Wednesday, December 03 2008 at 07:00 PM

Let me know what they say.

Friday, February 27 2009 at 07:00 PM

Thank you for the best wishes! It looks like we very well could be classmates! I'm hoping we both get into FIU and NOVA! See you in the Fall! We have to stay positive right?

Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

I am going to try to answer all of your questions. The open house went really well. The faculty and staff there are great and the campus/law building is equally impressive. We (open housees) went on a tour of the law center then had a sit-down chat with the Dean, Teacher of the year, Assistant Dean of Admissions, and Law panel (students). There were two part-time students on the panel and probably 10 out of 50 students in attendance were part-time. I was accepted to the full-time program, and I have worked all this year so I will not have to next year if that makes sense haha. I hope you hear soon. I know how bad the waiting game is. I still have not heard back from schools I applied to in December. Best of luck to you. Oh and I withdrawed from Nova. I will change it on my profile eventually. And on a good note, if people do not put there deposits donw within two weeks to Nova and FIU, their seats will be pulled... if that helps :)

Tuesday, January 27 2009 at 07:00 PM

They take so long because of people not withdrawing haha, basically I am on the waitlist without being told that I am. I do think people know that is the known etiquette, at least most people do. Thanks for the vibes, right back at ya.

Wednesday, December 10 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hey! Thanks so much on your comment! Goodluck to you for the schools you want! I may have applied early but I am still waiting for the schools I really want to go to. I hate this waiting game! Hope you get the schools you want :)

Saturday, December 13 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hey, thanks for the comment! I am actualy going to be full time. Hopefully I will see you there :)

Friday, February 27 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hi, how did you know you were complete at FIU? Thanks.

good LUCK!
Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

Did FIU you notify you of your status or did you have to call? I had to call them to find out that my application was even complete! lol Good luck on your cycle though :-)

Nova DVD
Friday, February 27 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hi, I just wanted to let you know that you can order a free DVD from Nova Law that gives you a tour of the campus, the law library, and lets you "sit-in" on actual law classes... I found the DVD very informative. The website to order the DVD is: Also, you already applied, but I ordered the DVD first, and Nova Law waived their application fee just because I ordered the DVD.

Thursday, December 04 2008 at 07:00 PM

THANKS SO MUCH! Great words of encouragement!!! :) Good luck!!!

Wednesday, December 03 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hey, sorry it took me so long to get back with you. I really enjoyed the FIU day. They made a strong case for themselves. I wish you the best of luck. Most likely I will withdraw from Nova on by WED if i dont hear any major money news.

Barry Nova and FIU
Thursday, November 20 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hi Lillian, Thanks for the encouragement! I hope you get accepted to Nova! I see that you also applied to Barry and I am 99% sure I'm going to attend there. I visited the campus last month and although it's a small and newly accredited school, I was impressed. If you do apply and get accepted to Barry, I hope to see you around! I decided to apply to FIU last minute, hoping to have another choice. Good luck to you...Nova Nova Nova!

Thursday, November 06 2008 at 07:00 PM

thanks! congrats on Nova :)

Friday, February 27 2009 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on Nova! You're going to Law School!!!!!!! I hope I am not too far behind you!

Good Luck!
Sunday, January 04 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hey thanks for the congrats! I'm still waiting on a lot of schools as you can see, so hopefully I hear some more good news shortly. I bet you will too!

Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

I withdrew from FIU...hope it helps! :-) Congrats on NOVA!!

Congrats on Nova!
Thursday, November 20 2008 at 07:00 PM

Hi, Just saw that you were accepted to Nova, Congrats!

Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! I know....keep in touch though...and facebook is a must... :-) Good luck and I wish you the best...K.I.T.

Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

Thanks so much for the encouraging words.I have been using both PowerScore books for the past 2 months and they are helping me immensely in the Logic Reasoning section ;-).Congrats, on NOVA and I hope you get good news from FIU..either way there is a good chance we'll be at the same school next year. Hopefully you wont mind helping a 1L out ;-).

Monday, October 27 2008 at 08:00 PM

Congrats on your acceptance to Nova. Good luck on the rest of your cycle and FIU! I hope my withdrawal helps you out. I don't know what school I'm going to attend yet, but I have it narrowed down to Stetson and Miami. Have to make a decision pretty soon though.

Thanks FIU
Tuesday, January 13 2009 at 07:00 PM

FIU called me, she said they normally dont call, but since they knew many schools have April 1 seat deposits they wanted me to make an informed decision. I thought that was very cool of them. Just waiting on FSU...thats the only school I would consider over FIU...Miami and Stetson are too expensive

Wednesday, March 25 2009 at 08:00 PM

Congrats to you too on your Nova acceptance!!

Tuesday, January 13 2009 at 07:00 PM

I am REALLY happy when I see someone who REALLY wants to go to law school get in...keep pursuing your dream...Wes

Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

I am a big fan of calling but I am not sure. I think it depends on how often/when the last time you called was. I think every two or three weeks shows that you really care, but it also does not come across as too annoying. I would think they would make a decision soon though. If you are applying PT your numbers should get you in... or I would think. I am sorry that you have to wait so long :(

FIU hold
Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

I have no idea what it means really! I read on the TLS board that it happened to a couple of other people too. Good luck on the rest of your cycle!!

Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

And no, I'm applying full time.

Wednesday, December 03 2008 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on NOVA!

Monday, March 30 2009 at 08:00 PM

Thanks for the comment. I know that my LSAT is pretty low but im hoping for a miracle. If I get accepted to the AAMPLE program I will work hard to gain my admission.

Hey, thanks for the congrats!
Monday, August 06 2007 at 08:00 PM

i have several apps still out there. so i'll let you know as soon as i know. thanks

Sunday, November 09 2008 at 07:00 PM

Well, I was actually put on hold rather than waitlisted (LSN needs a hold option, haha). They sent me the letter via snail mail. I am actually not too disappointed considering my numbers are almost at their 25th percentile range, but I am definitely hoping they come back with an admit. Good luck to you in hearing from them!

Thank you!
Monday, December 15 2008 at 07:00 PM

Thanks! Congrats on your acceptance as well. I'm not sure why FIU had such a short period, right now I am petitioning them for an extension until May 1 as I am still waiting on Nova and some other financial stuff to come through. Hopefully they'll grant the wishes on your pending apps! :)

Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

I am pretty sure I have already told several people this story, but I called FIU about a month after I sent in my application to ask current status. They told me the same "You will have a decision with in the next 6-8 weeks" that they told you. The good news is that I was accepted the following week. Keep your head up because I am sure you will be getting some good news in the mail very soon. Best of luck to you!

One more thought...
Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

It sounds like most of the people accepted to FIU are asking for an extension on their deposit date. This might be the reason a decision has yet to be made on your file, because the extended deadline is April 15th. I hope it is a little helpful.

Wednesday, December 03 2008 at 07:00 PM

I am happy for you. Unless i get pulled off W&L or richmonds waiting list i will be there.

Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

What did I tell you hahaha! Congrats!!!!! I also see that you have already checked off attending FIU. Well, maybe this means I will be seeing you around. Congrats once again though!

see you in year 1
Tuesday, December 30 2008 at 07:00 PM

hey, ill be in the part time, i am not sure how much interaction we will have wtih the FT's but shoot me an email. Good luck to you and i look foward to going to law school with you!!!! Yeah!!!

Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

Wow Im happy for you lady, you truly deserve it. Hopefully Ill be there next year with you if I dont get into UM's full-time program. By the way I got approved for a 35% discount on Kaplan so I will take the May class and it ends just before my test in June. PS I did my undergrad @ FIU...beautiful're gonna love it.

Friday, February 27 2009 at 07:00 PM

OMG!!!!! You got in to FIU!!! CONGRATS!!!!! I am praying I get in! I haven't heard from Nova or FIU, I'm getting kind of scared.... I applied later than you though... wish me luck! I really hope to see you in the fall!

good 4 U
Tuesday, January 13 2009 at 07:00 PM

congrats ...see you next year

Friday, February 27 2009 at 07:00 PM

Hi! I got into NOVA! Yay! I'm going to law school! Hopefully my FIU acceptance isn't too far behind! I want to be your classmate!

I have a quick question for you...
Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

I was looking at the FIU website and I could only find last years recommended reading... do you know where I can find the list for this year? Thanks

Congrats on FIU!!!
Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

Congrats on FIU!!! To top if off, I received an email from them stating that they received the highest bar passage rate in the state of FL!!! (81.5%). Stetson came next with 80% and surprisingly, U. of Miami, U. of Fl, and FSU had a 61-64% passage rate... go figure right? Anywho...I'm glad you got into the school that you wanted :-)

Thank you
Sunday, January 25 2009 at 07:00 PM

Ok hahah. I was getting angry at the computer last night because I wasn't figuring it out hahah. But I guess it wasn't me.

Monday, January 12 2009 at 07:00 PM

Yeah I got into FIU, but I am not going. I was kind of pissed with them. But anyways I see you got into FIU. Good luck, I am sure we will meet up out there in the lawyer world.

I know.....
Friday, February 27 2009 at 07:00 PM

I know, I'm starting to get really frustrated!!!! I really, really want to go to FIU!!!! I think I'll hear either next week or the first week of May... I just hope I get accepted and they let me know before May 11th, because I really don't want to waste money on a deposit at Nova. You were complete almost a month before me, so if I get my decision in about the same amount of time that you did, I should receive it early May. Wish me luck!

Tuesday, January 27 2009 at 07:00 PM

haha thanks congrats to you too, i'll be seeing ya!

Friday, February 27 2009 at 07:00 PM

I'M GOING TO FIU!!!!!! See you there!!!!!!!! YAY YAY YAY!!!! I'm so happy I have freakin' tears in my eyes!!!!!
