Waitlisted at UM

Postby hous » Wed Mar 23, 2011 7:21 am

I was waitlisted at UM, the message said Im an alternate for admissions. Whats the likelyhood I will get off the waitlist? Im withing their margin, but I applied just 2 weeks ago so maybe that was a factor.

Im a 3.44/157

You know that 40/50 U.S. states have "M" as their first letter, right?

There's no way to know what your chances are. Just send in a letter of continued interest and go from there.

However, keep in mind that Miami is a poor choice because its very expensive and its local market, the market that it mainly places in, is oversaturated.

In any case, good luck.

I STRONGLY believe that at this point, FIU may be a better choice than UM if forced to pay sticker at both.

BAM.

Just like how getting shot in the foot is better than being shot in the balls.
