Sent application on the 3rd. Let's see how this plays out. Local here too. It'll be between UM, FIU, FSU and UF for me depending on the schollys.

In today via snail mail. Hopefully a decent scholarship comes in the next 3 weeks to make attending a little more feasible.

I was emailed saying I received a scholarship, but I did not find out the amount until they sent a letter separate from my admissions packet in the mail.

Anyone else in the same situation as me with an LSAT at their 25% but a GPA above their 75%? I'm not going to call myself a reverse splitter on here because I know what reaction I'll get... (RETAKE!! lol) Looks like I'm not being considered for any scholarship money at all considering I received my acceptance Dec. 14 and have not received any information regarding a scholarship as others have. Is this completely normal? Seems as though LSAT doesn't rank supreme for schollys for other schools considering I was offered acceptance and $$ to peer schools. I plan on trying to negotiate w/ Miami because of this as well as my relatively high GPA. Just trying to see if anyone is in the same boat as me at Miami! Thanks!

I am. LSAT below 25th but GPA way above 75th. Tried to negotiate some money after getting a full ride offer from the local tier 4 but all they said was "your lsat isn't high enough. We're looking for 160s for scholarship consideration"

Depending on what you plan to do with your degree, it may be a bad idea to attend Miami at sticker. However, if you are committed to public service, take a look at their HOPE public interest program. There are plenty of public sector jobs to be had in South Florida but you have to demonstrate commitment early on. The Miami-Dade State Attorney Office hires 2 new classes of ASAs each year and most come from UM so there are opportunities there but you have to put in the work. Luckily, there are programs like pslf/ibr that can ease the burden of paying off your debt. But you have to be sure you want to work in public service or it's gonna be a real bad time.

I am not interested in public interest in the slightest. I guess I'm doomed :roll:

Scholarship info came the other day, $25,000 a year provided I stay in top 50% of my class. Makes it interesting now.

Scholarship info just came. $20,000 a year. Nice, but not enough. Hopefully this will give me some leverage in working with FSU on $$$.

Can you stack scholarships like that? I thought that you had to choose one or the other. Also, when did you find out about being interviewed for Miami Scholars? I got a letter yesterday with my scholarship amount...
