Hi guys. First time poster here - the past few pages of posts have been very informative.

I have a quick question for you all concerning the procedure of applying to UM. My apologies if this has been covered earlier, although I didn't see it in the preceding posts.

When I applied to UM a little over a week ago, I received an e-mail from them acknowledging receipt of the application and saying that they will be receiving a hard copy from LSAC 10-12 days after receipt of the electronic application.

I am a bit concerned that, on my LSAC application page, UM is shown simply as "transmitted", while other schools I applied to after UM are shown as completed. Was this normal for you all? Will the application status switch to "complete" once UM receives the hard copy?

I'm fairly anxious, as there is no indication on the site that my Law School report was sent to, or requested by, UM. Although, if this has been everyone's experience, I can breathe easier.

Thank you in advance for any clarification here.

While Miami was not one of them, I did have a few schools that it seemed took a little while for them to request my report. I would give it a couple more days and if the LSAC website does not show your report has been requested, contact the LSAC and the admissions office at Miami.

What is the story with the status checker?? When I try to sign up at Creat/Recover Cane ID page, I'm asked to give my maternal grandmother's first name, which they have no way of knowing because I've never signed up! Anyone else have this problem?

Thank you for the clarification. I'll do as you suggested.

Thanks again.

Is this when you are originally attempting to set up your ID? If so they ask the question so they have the answer if you forget your log-in information at a later point in time.

That would make sense, but it tells me my answer is incorrect! And don't you usually get to choose from a list of security questions?

Yes. From what we have gathered-- don't expect anything until January or so.

Does the mailed package provide additional information unavailable in the acceptance emails and related links. The email link stated scholarship information in December or 3-4 weeks after acceptance.

Congrats

Nope, I don't see any additional scholarship info. It's just a copy of the acceptance letter, information about seat deposits, request for housing info, an insert letting you know miami is ranked #20 in Super Lawyers, and a view book about the school's programs and the like..
