You see anything else??? All my docs are in. MyUM fail. I currently go to Umiami as an undergrad and am disappointed with this app process for law school.

it will always say that until a decision is made. it is not a traditional status checker. when a decision is made you will get and email saying check your myUM account.

I heard back about three weeks after my acceptance, got a full scholly, but I'll probably be withdrawing soon so it'll go back in the pot - hopefully one of you gets it!

Just got informed yesterday that I received the 25k / year Merit Scholly, definitely makes it attractive, even though they have the dreaded "must be in the top 1/3rd stipulation". Overall, I can say they made the decision and scholarship assignment pretty quickly.

How did you hear back? was it via email or snail mail... 3 weeks after acceptance, ok well that gives me a little while before i should start really worrying about it i suppose

I got an e-mail informing me that I had a scholarship, but that the info was sent through snail mail. But I called and told them I was in my hometown and would not be back to my apartment for a while so they let me know all the info over the phone.

I accepted early in the cycle and heard back this month, but that's really not an indication of how long it will take you because they didn't start releasing scholarship information until recently.

okay so I got an email on Friday 1/27 that I had received a scholarship and the information would be enclosed in a letter. I received the hardcopy letter on Saturday 1/28. Mind you I live 4 blocks from UM, so the letter transfer time was quick.

Hey guys,
In response to questions about acceptances and scholarships, here's my timeline:

Applied: Dec. 2
Accepted via MyUM: Dec. 21 (up until this point it just said something about checking LSAC for additional documents)
Scholarship via email: Jan 12.

I then called to find out my scholarhsip amount. It came in the mail a couple weeks later, if I remember correctly.

Hope this helps some of you! :)

Kinda sucks, I would love to attend Miami.. Given their employment statistics, COL, and tuition, there is absolutely no way I will be attending at full price. :(

Congratulations! Will you definitely be attending? How long did it take from your time of acceptance to receive this scholarship info?

I have not made a decision yet as I am still waiting to hear on some more schools. It took 5 days including the weekend to hear. I got in via notice from the website on 1/25
