Miami Law c/o 2020 Applicants (2016-2017)

Postby smashbash » Wed Nov 23, 2016 4:32 pm

Submitted my app 11/18, went complete 11/21 and received my acceptance 11/21 (by email titled, 'Miami Law: Acceptance Notification' and in status checker). I was hoping for a call from the Dean with scholly $$, but I haven't heard anything yet, so I'm thinking I may be out of luck. GPA 3.3 LSAT 161

What has been anyone else's experience?

Wait you got your acceptance in 3 days? That's amazing!

When does scholarship information come out...that seems like too quick of a turnaround time for them to have $$ info..

Right?! And the 2 days in between were Saturday and Sunday... I was so surprised. It does seem quick for $$ notification, however, I saw on LSN that some people received a call from the dean the next day with a scholarship offer. Of course I've also read that some people never received the call and got the info in the mail a few weeks later, but it seems as if the norm is getting a call. I also saw people on LSN who got $$ with about the same scores (or significantly below me in LSAT and above me in GPA). Who knows! Definitely can't even consider UM at sticker price though.

Congrats on the full ride! That's awesome for UM. Are you seriously considering it?

That's insane! I'm pretty sure you'll get scholarship information in the mail, there's no way you should have to pay sticker for UM with your numbers. I would hang tight and enjoy the holidays, knowing that your $$$ is coming in the mail.

Congrats again on the acceptance!

I submitted the Friday it opened and Monday morning had an acceptance call from Dean with hefty scholarship. You'll most definitely get $$$ as your stats were higher than mine. I did just get in to UGA and given their low tuition, even with scholarship at UM they are still more expensive. So I may go back to Miami to try and negotiate.

Fingers crossed that things were hectic because of the holiday and they'll call me this week, haha. Congrats on your offers! I'm sure you can negotiate with UM a little later in the cycle.

Same here. I got in last Monday and haven't heard anything in the way of scholarships. I also figured they might do phone calls this week.

So, I finally got the acceptance packet in the mail... nothing in terms of $$ mentioned in it. Did anyone who got the call about $$ have it mentioned in the packet? I got into FIU after UM and they already told me I have a 74% scholly.. what's up UM?!

My packet from UM didn't say anything either. Did you notice on one of the sheets it said scholarship info should come in like 3-4 weeks?? Like why can't they just make some calls.

I just saw that on the back of that one sheet.. I had just glanced over it before. Seriously! It's frustrating that some people get a call the day of or day after being admitted. What's the consensus on calling them about it tomorrow? Lol

Mine was a phone call and he told me scholly in the call, as per the physical letter, it said nothing about scholly, then I received another separate letter solely about Scholarship info.
