that's not too bad 65% off tuition.

In case you are admitted to UF, GULC and NYU which one would you attend ?

That is a complicated decision. Unless I receive a full scholarship at GULC, I'll go to UF. NYU and Florida are both my #1 option, and I'll make up mi mind once I receive NYU's confirmation...and a scholarship at NYU is also expected...but still do not know.

Did you apply for a scholarship or did they just grant it to you?

Sdevante and elnico86,

How long took UF to contact you after your application was complete?

And how did they contact you?Through e-mail?

I submitted my application on 10/29/08.

On 11/5/08 I received a letter via email stating that all my materials were received except for a letter of rec. and a class rank statement. The same day I emailed my professor to send my other LOR and had my registrar fax a class rank form.

On 11/7/08 I received a letter via email stating that my application was complete and decisions take 4 weeks from the date of completion, or maybe longer.

On 11/26/08 I received the acceptance letter via postal mail.

Turnaround was amazingly quick in all respects.

In my case, I sent all the material on November 3rd, and they received all the documents Nov 6th. November 13th they confirmed my acceptance and the day after I had a phone conference with the Director and he offered me a scholarship in case I accept their offer.
I think that they move fast if your profile and background interest them.
Where are you from? Are you considering applying to UF?

Actually, I have already sent my documents to Levin, with the exception of the TOEFL score (105), which I am expecting to be delivered by ETS very shortly. I got my results last Thursday and immediatly made the delivery order.

elnico86, did they reach you by e-mail to tell u about the admission? I am kind of worried, cause I'm not at home very often and my parents can't understand a word of english...

As you, I graduated from a T1 School in my country, but among top 25%. I have 3 years of work experience in a B4. What do you think??

Thanks a lot!

Hey,
They contacted me by e-mail one week after they received my papers, even before they received my official scores from ETS (I sent them a simple copy and then the official score report). We try to coordinate a phone conference and in the meanwhile, once we decided a date, they sent me the acceptance letter by e-mail one day before the phone chat.
My impression, according to your comments, is that you have good chances of being accepted, TOEFL is great, being a T1 university is excellent, as well as your work experience...25% is not an excellent but It's not a disaster either. Did you make an LLM in your country?
