Congrats! Can you also let us know if you had an interview prior to your notification, or if it was just out of the blue?
Thx!

I went to UM for undergrad and had a class in the law school building. I can only speak of the facilities aesthetically, but I think they're good not great. The campus itself is gorgeous. The university has renovated and added to the campus gym which I hear is now top notch (not that it was bad before). Also, the student center has been renovated but I'm not sure if it's 100% complete (I hear the campus bar is not yet finished). Parking was a major hassel in undergrad and I presume it's the same for law students as they share a large parking lot with the rest of the campus.

Im not even bringing a vehicle down with me... so parking won't be a problem. Thanks for the info btowncane, I have heard the campus is gorgeous so im looking forward to seeing it. I am from Montana, where nice weather is scarce, so I am extremely excited about moving down.

Good luck to the rest of you.

No, they do not. I emailed and asked and they told me they do not offer travel stipends. Which is unfortunate, because I would love to at least see where im going to be living for the next 3 years before I arrive... but I suppose I understand, Miami is such a nice location that im sure a travel stipend program would be abused.

I guess I'll just meet everyone at orientation

Anybody interested in splitting a hotel there? I noticed that most of their discounted rates are all used up and I did get one.

Yeah so am I... but I doubt i'll be receiving one.

EDIT: Did you get an email saying you would be receiving an award package?

If anyone has any questions about the area or about the campus, PM me. I went to UM for undergrad and live 3 blocks away from the school.

Seems like they have given out the 25K/year with the 3.0 stip to quite a few people, myself included. Very classy... :roll: I'll be withdrawing soon.
