U. Miami Law c/o 2021 Applicants (2017-2018)

Postby QUIZ » Fri Dec 15, 2017 4:06 pm

I didn't see a thread up yet for this cycle so here you go.

I got admitted, and the process was painless. Will be planning a visit in the spring.

Anybody else apply/get accepted?

Yeah I got in with the Reid Scholarship (full + 2k stip) in September. Will be declining it once I deposit at another school

In, but I can't convince the wife to move down to Miami.... odd - also not sold on practicing only in Miami

I got in with a $25k a year scholarship on 1/9. I'm still waiting for my Philly schools to get back to me.

Just so you know, Miami will not get you a job Philly (if that's where you want to work)

I'm open to also practicing in Miami and South Florida. I have both family, friends, and I'm latina so it's always been one of the cities I'd be open to practice in; however, practicing in Philly is my top choice.

Ah ok. I'd also try to get more $ out of them. UM Law can be a pretty grim place on big loans

That's my biggest concern. I live in Philly now and the COL is SIGNIFICANTLY cheaper than Miami. Apparently, UM is notorious for not budging on scholarships but I'm definitely going to try my best. If anything it's a good negotiation tool for Philly schools if they do not give me money.
