I called and it's for real. I will give it some thought this week and I will let you know what i do.
I was just looking at schools and people that apply to them and I saw we had similar numbers and a few similar schools. I also received the same email from Coastal. I just thought it was kinda funny. Did you get put on a waitlist or a hold list at Miami? Good luck with the rest of your apps.
Hi there, and congrats so far on your cycle! Just an FYI: Faulkner is listed as Jones Law School on LSN. This is peculiar since Samford is referred to as Samford and not Cumberland, but nonetheless, I thought this info might be helpful. Good luck!
I received the same letter. I called the admissions office and asked them what the letter meant, and I was told the following: 25% of applicants are turned down at this point 25% of applicants are accepted 50% are put on hold for further review. The lady I spoke to (very nice lady) told me that the main difference between hold and waitlist is, the waitlist people will not hear from the University until June-ish, when the class is basically finalized, but hold students will heard in April when all of the applications are turned in. So I guess (if I heard right) it is better to be put on hold, because: Hold hears back when everyone has been excepted and Waitlist hears back when everyone has decided if they are attending or not. I am not sure if what I wrote made sense. I tried to re-read it but it is still a bit confusing. If you have any questions let me know. Best of luck to you!
Like I said in my earlier posting, so far, when I consider all factors, Ave Maria is the front. 1st, they are only 45 minutes from where I currently live. 2nd, they have offered me a fair scholarship. And 3rd, I like conservative schools. That said, however, I will withdraw from all schools, as soon as I know for sure, I will not be attending. If I receive a good finical package from Campbell, most likely, I will withdraw from Ave Maria. All that said, I dont think it would be in my best interest to do so at this moment. I am sorry if that is not the answer you are looking for.
Yes, I live in Fort Myers. No, I was not at the open house: I was out of town. Hopefully I will make the next one. I will keep you informed as to if I will attend or not. I wish you the best of luck and I hope you get in to your school of choice.
Congrats on FIU. I applied about a week after you so hopefully I will hear something soon. Just currious, did you go to a big name school(like a top 50 school)? I am just trying to see where I stand at FIU because instate tuition sounds really nice haha.
I just read that you went to Campbell. But still, congrats on FIU!
congrats on your acceptances so far. We are pretty similar in numbers. I was wondering, since you are Arab, were you considered a URM? I'm arab too but unfortunately not counted as a URM. I'm applying to nova as a safety, but I've been looking at LSN and it may be where i might end up going...if they accept me. but good luck on the rest of your apps!
The day after I asked you about FIU and undergrad I received I large packet in the mail from FIU. I was excited because I knew you had recently received your acceptance letter, but when I opened it, it was financial aid information and a view book... I was kinda bummed out hahaha
I checked my online status checker today and it said that a decision has been mailed. Most peoples profiles say that their status checker had an actual decision (as in yes or no) so do you know what it means that my decision is in the mail (besides the obvious haha)?
Hahaha... yeah I wasnt very specific about the school. It was really just a general question. I found out that because it did not say accecpted or denied, it means waitlisted. Thanks for the congrats. It was really bringing me down knowing that I only had one acceptance letter out of nearly 20 schools haha.
Hey, I was accapted to FIU today. Have you heard anything new from schools?
Sorry about DePaul man!
I read as of now FIU is your top choice. I think it is my first choice as of today also. Are you going to their open house on the 14th? What school is your top choice if you could go anywhere? I just thought I would ask because I noticed the trend the other day that I write you more than anyone else and I thought I would learn a little about you haha. As always, good luck in the next few weeks!
Hey, what is happening on the 14th? I completed my app at FIU and want to go to any prospective student events. Thanks!! Congrats on all your accepteances btw, you are kicking!!
I heard from them in what I guess people are calling "snail mail". It was a nice letter about how my numbers were strong but this years class is so impressive... you know the deal. But the strange thing was that they asked me to consider transfering in as a soph? Not sure about that one. Are you going to be at FIU next week?
I know exactly what you mean. I had 3 waitlists and 3 rejections in a row before hearing any new good news. I finally got my scholarship info from Dayton today and I was also accepted to Nova today. I most likely will not end up at Nova, but it was nice to finally get some good news. I am going to attatch my email. Maybe we could meet up at FIU this weekend.
Congrats on your acceptances! Our numbers are about the same and I see you got into FIU, so I hope that means I'm getting in too! Did you apply full-time or part-time? Thanks!
I tried to call you today during the open house. Where you there? If so, what did you think? Good luck with everything.
make that "were" you there
How did it go today? Did alot of people show up? What is your take on the part timers?? Thanks!!! :-) I called them and i am in review and it could take up to 4 weeks or more. this waiting is killing me.
I am sorry about LSU. Keep your head up!
FIU will be a regional school for employment so if you plan on living here in florida you are good to go. that is my observation. But campbell has a very good reputation and program too. Some other person who attended the open house told me that they pull seats if those accepted do not put down deposits. did they give any more details on that or on the part time program? I wish i was able to go, i have so many questions but i am afraid to call and piss someone off!!!
Yeah I was a little surprised to find out that I was flat-out turned down also. A waitlist allows you to keep more dignity haha. About the Campbell/FIU thing. I think no matter how you look at it, both schools are regional schools. I went to undergrad and grad school in North Carolina, so I have a pretty good feel for Campbell (not as good as you of course). I have a friend who goes to law school at Campbell and she seems to like it. In my research and expierences, I would say both schools are each others equal just in different states. All of my friends from NC with 3.0-3.4 and 152-156 go to Campbell, just like those from Florida go to FIU. Wake, UNC, and Duke are like Miami, FSU, and UF. And Central is like Nova or Barry I ran track and cross country in college and I visited the school for an XC meet of two and I thought the campus was really nice. Outside the Univ, Buies doesnt have a lot going on. Then again, I went to school in a town with something like 10,000 people. I am looking at it the same way you are though. I am hoping to get in Elon and get a scholarship there. If it happens, I will be just as confused as you haha. For me I know it will come down to where I want to live and what the diploma will look like on my wall. I still say go with your heart because in the end some things mean more than money, scholarships and where you are working. Plus with as much money as you will be spending no matter where you go, you might as well get as much bang for your buck as you can! In conclusion get into UF and pay $11,000 a year for a T50 school haha Sorry I wrote so much again
Thanks, I knew it had to be something simple like that.
haha i will not. maybe i'll see ya next year!
I see we ware the only two with "A's" by our names haha. Congrats!
Thank you for the well wishes... I have absolutely no patience.... I really hate waiting... I can't imagine how I would have been had I applied earlier. Well I see that you are attending FIU, hopefully I will see you there!!!
I hope i see you there. Im on the part time program!! Whoo Hoo!!!!
Did you get the same lovely postcard that I received hahah? But for some good news (if you are a sports fan)... FIU just hired Isiah Thomas as the head basket ball coach! I am excited... although it really has nothing to do with law school. http://sports.espn.go.com/ncb/news/story?id=4065658 and... http://www.fiusports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?SPSID=49079&SPID=4764&DB_OEM_ID=11700&ATCLID=3719465
Yeah I am not sure if the one they gave me is renewable... but I'll take it!
Hey - W&L emailed me on Thursday asking me if I was still interested in attending, then emailed me on Friday to let me know I was in. I never sent in any LOCI's or anything like that.
Good luck to you as well!
Hey I just saw on here you were going to attend FIU and I wanted to know why you chose it over all your other schools. I am really trying to decide between FIU and Michigan State and I would like to hear any info about the school I can. Did you visit, how was the faculty, do you know alumni, just any info that would be great! Thanks
Thats pretty funny. I don't think I have ever heard of anyone getting accepted without applying. I am still waiting for my decision as they told me Its in the mail. If you can get more money I would definetely consider it over Nova.
