160/3.41 I got the 24k also and accepted the scholarship. I applied on 9/1. I was held last year and waitlisted in April or May. I'm looking forward to being a Cane and meeting the posters on this board. Well, most of you anyway. It should be a fun three years.

Best of luck to those on hold/waitlist. I have felt your pain and I know it's tough.

Who's going to to Admitted Students Day in March?

I just got in via website. 167, 3.0, Hispanic URM (from Chile). URM, Non - URM, does it matter at Miami?

Any chance at $$$?

Accepted today with a 162/3.49. Does anyone know when they will be done handing out money? Are they known for negotiating scholarships at all?

Awesome. How much?



24,000 per...with a 3.2 GPA stipulation. Has anyone asked about the attrition rates for this?

WHAAT?!


When did you apply? I can't believe you received so much money. I have similar numbers and I was expecting far less if any money at all. When did you apply? Did you put in a phone call to speak to someone with authority directly? I've called, only to be told that I simply have to wait to find out.


No, I just had solid softs and got a jump on the competition when they began accepting applications. FWIW, 160 seems to be the cutoff for scholarships from what i've seen. Good luck though.

Yeah, my acceptance and scholarship info came separately in the mail. Don't sweat it, with your numbers, you should be golden.

Good luck!

I'm pretty sure that non-URMs are the URMs at Miami haha. From what I've seen on LSN you should get some $$$

3.3/167
Just got in via Congratulations on the portal. No mention of Scholarship money, although I know you guys have been saying they send a package in the mail in a couple of weeks if your offered anything. Just odd that they don't mention it.

I have been on hold for almost 4 weeks as well. I doubt calling would help. All they will tell you is that they will review applications before April 30th. From what I've heard, they start re-reviewing held applications around the time of the first seat deposit so we shouldn't expect to hear anything before then. Have you sent a LOCI?

I have been on hold since November. I am a bit upset with their admissions office. I sent a couple of things to them since, and they have never acknowledged it. Recently, I updated my email address. The school email address I had was expiring, so I had to update. I hear not one peep out of them.

Can anyone help me out?

I got the acceptance packet today in the mail. The packet did not include any mention of $$$.

3.0, 167, Hispanic URM (I know, I know, Hispanic is not a URM, especially at Miami).

Does this mean I won't get any $? Any feedback would be appreciated.

Thanks.
