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?


Really hoping for some good news for all of us!

Visited yesterday, it's beautiful. I'll be at UM if FSU or Wake don't come through. Looked the the apartments close and wasn't impressed. Wanted to get a condo in Coral Gables (like 10-15 from campus) if anyone is interested in this too, shoot me a PM. I'm from FL my whole life but I don't know any UM students.

For those on hold, who then moved to "View Admissions Documents Needed", log into the website and then click on this link: https://myum.miami.edu/Admissions/Accep ... Letter.asp

I just got waitlisted, and it hasn't been updated on the 'Check Admission Status' page, but shows on the above link. I'm disappointed, I thought I would get into Miami and I was excited about going there. Maybe there will be more cancellations then expected.

Good luck to all!

Edit: For those on hold who then get waitlisted, would you/did you send another LOCI if you already sent one when you got put on hold? I assume that it's probably a good thing, but I just wanted to see what others are doing or have done.

+1. Better than a rejection I suppose.

Wait listed via link. I went ahead and filled out the form to remain on the list. Anyone familiar with the likelihood of people being pulled off the wait list? Based on what I've read on TLS and LSN, a ton of people withdrawal Miami acceptances. Therefore, it would seem as if we have a shot.

I submitted a LOCI immediately after my initial "hold" status. However, I am going to send another letter/supplemental essay asap. Can't hurt? Right?

This really sucks. My fiancées secured a nursing job in the area. If accepted to Miami, then I would immediately secure a deposit -hence it wouldn't be an acceptance followed by a withdrawal.

Waiting... all.. over... again.. Great!

Ugh! Why are they waitlisting everyone so early? I thought they'd at least wait until after April 15th to see how many seat deposits they get. Really disappointed. :cry:

You were wait listed I assume?

I wish I know how many of those "accepted" last year, according to LSAC, were off of the WL.

Yep, I was waitlisted too. Sent a LOCI, another letter of recommendation, attached an addendum, and even visited. Guess I could send another LOCI but I don't have much else to say.

Does Miami wait list a lot? My numbers are not great but I think some people with similar numbers are getting wait listed...

I think so. It sure does seem that way. Miami should have an infomercial instead. Only 2,000 people are eligible for admission! However, the first 500 who secure a deposit are in! Call and secure a deposit in the next 3 minutes and receive a free Lebron Jersey, beach towel, and spf 30 sunblock!* Shipping and handling is $100 dollars!

You have been selected as an alternate for admission to the University of Miami School of Law. We regret that the keen competition for seats in this fall's entering class makes it impossible for us to grant you admission at this time.
If you wish to be retained on our wait-list, please click here to complete the form. If you do not respond, we will assume that you do not wish to be retained on the wait-list.

As space becomes available and we are therefore able to offer you admission to the class, we will notify you promptly.

Sincerely,

Michael L. Goodnight
Assistant Dean of Admissions

hahaha! Love this! I really don't understand Miami's admission standards. I know someone who got in who did absolutely nothing in college but drink and smoke pot, made up half the stuff on his resume and personal statement, but he got in because his LSAT score was a few points higher than mine, even though I have a much higher GPA. But if that's the kind of people they are looking for, good for them. I guess working my ass off for four years to maintain an almost perfect gpa, graduating with honors and awards, and being involved in community service and extracurricular activities means nothing to Miami.

Add me to the new batch of people added to the WL, too.

I'm trying to figure out what I could write in an LOCI; also, to those that did the additional LOR, did you mail it in? I already asked my mentors for LORs though and submitted most of them to UM; I assume I need a brand new LOR as we're advised to sign the rights away from our LORs submitted through LSAC. I'm not quite sure where to start re: an additional LOR; any advice would be appreciated.

I actually emailed in an additional LOR, which is what I was told to do when I called. I wasn't able to submit any more through LSAC but fortunately, one of my recommenders had also sent me an email copy, and the lady I spoke with over the phone told me that it would be fine to email it. I also tried contacting LSAC to see if there was any way to send another letter and they said that they couldn't send another letter unless Miami requested it, so can maybe try calling Miami and asking them if there is a way to do that. Otherwise, if asking for new letters, maybe it would be better to just avoid going through LSAC, but again, might want to double check with Miami on that one because I feel like they say something different every time I talk to them.

Tomorrow I am going to call, ask to speak to admissions, and see if I can fly down for an interview or an open house.. I am not playing around.. however, this past August, for my birthday, was an amazing time in South Beach. Ha! Maybe I should have mentioned that in my PS.

Good idea. Please let me know what they say. Maybe we should all just show up at their law day with seat deposits :lol:

My best friend said I should mail them a $1,000 check titled, "seat deposit." That way, if they cash it, then I am in! If not, they sure as heck know I am not playing around! Ha

I wrote in my LOCI that they are my top choice and that I would immediately send in a seat deposit if accepted, but I guess they didn't care.

When did you submit your application? You should have received an email stating your application was complete, followed by an email containing a CaneID. Did you receive such email?
