was on hold for several months then got in. no scholly in the horizon. will have to make decision based on this. do you think its reasonable to be in 114k in debt? I believe I may be able to get my books, room and board paid for by parental help. what would you do? and i agree, lets not trash this school. it is a viable option . indeed, despite what ive said in previous threads, fluctuating between paying or not paying, the truth is that ive lived in s fl all my life and still love it. so fsu/uf or not, is irrelevant since the only solid school in s fl is miami. so it has to be a viable option for anyone wishing to live here.

I have a connection higher up in the administration at the university that has ties to the law school, and I've been trying to get more money than the $24k/year they already gave me. My connection was told that they have used all their funds, and as people withdraw those with the best credentials will be considered for those awards.

Also, after the first year you can apply for a merit-based increase. Rising students can also apply for need and public interest based awards for the 2L year. So there is always potential for some/more money later on. I hope this info is helpful. :D

Yea I'm accepting the scholarship offer. 24k, hoping maybe I'll get luckier and get some more, but I can't complain, especially living at home. If not, I'm hopeful for a merit-based increase later on in school. It's all about the U!

I just logged into MyUM and instead of my hold letter I previously had, I get a link to see documents needed, which directs me to LSAC. I tried to use the link from a few pages ago and instead of seeing an acceptance letter, it says your admissions information is not available, please contact the office of admissions. Has anyone else gotten this pattern of messages!?

I got that a few weeks ago when they took me off hold. They're probably reviewing/re-reviewed your app and haven't posted the decision yet......keep checking next week though, that link from the other page usually lets you know before they actually tell you. Good Luck!

For what it's worth, IF I go to Miami, due to the debt I've accumulated during undergrad, I'd end up at a little over $200,000 in debt after law school. I'm praying I get in somewhere cheaper, but if worst comes worst, I'm not looking at a good situation.
That being said, I will bite the bullet and pay if I have to.. I know in the long run I should have some help to eventually pay it all off.

Same. Does it even matter now though? We will get no money at all if we get in.

I know last time before everyone on hold got admitted they were able to see the acceptance page. Does anyone have any idea what it means if we can't see it? Waitlist?

Wait can anyone see the letter congratulating them when hitting that link? I got a message saying my admission documents can't be viewed right now or a message to that effect.

That is what we have too. But a few weeks ago, right before a bunch of people were admitted off the hold list and also had their hold letters replaced by view admissions documents needed, they were able to see their acceptance letter online by clicking on this link --LinkRemoved-- ... Letter.asp

However, when I click on this link it brings me to a page that says "Your admissions information is not available at this time. Please contact the Office of Admissions at 305-284-2527 for additional information. Thank you." I'm not sure what this means.

Sorry I'm not sure why the link doesn't work when I copy and paste it, but it was back on page 36 or 37 I believe

My husband has been accepted to Miami. We will be picking up everything and moving there sometime in the next four months (whenever I can secure employment or school starts, whichever happens sooner). Anyone able to offer any information about Broward County? We have a "pit bull" so living in Miami-Dade is out. How far away is it from campus? Any neighborhoods to avoid? Is the metrorail pretty reliable and easy to use? Any other advice on the Miami area (beyond living arrangements)? We are from Texas so we don't even know where to begin!

Unfortunately, like so many others on this thread, no scholarship money so we will be paying sticker. At least the first year, then we can try again for further assistance. I ask that those who feel paying sticker for Miami is "stupid" to please refrain from responding to my inquiry. Yes, we know that we will acquire a large amount of debt, but we have made our decision based off what is best for us. Anyone who has any helpful information, your input is greatly appreciated!

Add me to that new status list, too. Here's to hoping we don't have to wait too terribly long to find out what it means.

I really hope we hear something soon. It's still early, so I'm hoping for some good news. Why would they reject us before the first seat deposit is even due?

Same status:

"View Admissions Documents Needed You can track your documents received at the LSAC website. The LSAC website is http://www.LSAC.org"

I hope this is a positive sign.
