I don't think you can :( I haven't navigated away from it yet though; however, I think the consensus is that once you click away, you can't get back to it.

What happens when you click the: "Okay, now what?" button? Does it just take you back to the original blank UM portal page? Or does it provide information about scholarships and whatnot?

Also, I found the "Okay, now what?" button to be pretty funny! :lol:

Even if you got scholarship, would you attend UM over FSU?? If so, why? (just curious to hear other people's pros and cons).

I mean, realistically if Miami were to give me enough $ to drop to 10k a year for tuition, while FSU is @ 16k per year, it would be an option. Also, my long term boyfriend (4 years, probably future fiance) is applying to business schools including in Miami and at FSU, and since he went to undergrad here FOR me, I do want him to be able to come to where I go... (hopefully he will get into both though).

Yup. Then I went ahead and took a screen capture of it! I want to be able to remember my FIRST (and possibly only?) law school acceptance!
And to answer about the "Now what" button.. it takes you to information about paying the seat deposit and some stuff you can read.

Does anyone know if Miami is typically generous with scholarship offers? Any idea how much $ I can expect with a 3.7 and 165 from a top20 undergrad?

For those of you who are in, when did you submit your app??

I'm worried. Numbers-wise I am fine, but I haven't received anything. But I also didn't submit my app until October 29th, and up until Wednesday my app was on hold because they were waiting on my second LOR, which they now have.

For those curious about scholarships:

You wont hear anything until February at the earliest.

UMiami is generous when it comes to money. However, because of this they tend to "run out" quickly. If you fall near their medians, you could probably get $25,000 total. If youre near their 75th, over $60,000. Anything above that, go to a better school. :D

Congratulations to everyone.
