I just created my CaneID and found out I'm in! I got a call from the FSU Director of Admissions today, so I got into FSU and UM on the same day!!!

because I evidently was.

opened up my myUM account, which i created the other day cause i was bored, and had the big congratulations page. but my second LOR isn't in yet, and according to the miami website, they require two...interesting.


I have no way of knowing if I was accepted before it was complete, but as of Wednesday I was on the phone w/them and they just then found my 2nd LOR, at the time I sent in my app, I only had 1.. is your letter showing up on the LSAC site? Because if so, they probably have it.

i actually just spoke to the prof who is writing it, and he said he's going to do it this weekend but his wife just had twins and evidently that keeps people pretty busy...

excuses excuses. i have to assume he knew about these 'twins' for a while, could written my damn letter while they were still...contained ;)


most likely :wink: I had that problem with a prof too.. took FOREVER ..

Congrats on the acceptance, btw !

go to "My UMlogin" -> when that screen pops up, on the bottom, click on "first time using CaneID".. it will be pretty self-explanatory from there

No mention of it in my letter or online status checker. I have heard (somewhere, I forgot where) that UM sends that stuff out later, sometime after the new year.

Good luck to everyone.

Yeah first acceptance too! I just tried to login to the admitted students website and it says my social and bday don't match their records. :shock: I called and they said they're going to get right on the problem so that was nice to hear!

Can you guys post how you were notified of your acceptances?

Also is the admitted student website different from the My UM site? Is everyone given access to My UM or only admitted students?

Thanks.

Same here but when I tried to login the admitted website it says my social and bday don't match. So, there may be some other login we don't have yet but they are different websites.

For you all who applied to Miami or were recently accepted...

I find Miami's application annoying...it asks you to list all of your writing/papers from undergrad or your writing/articles if you were a journalist or whatever. I'm a journalism major, so I guess I'm going to list some of the stories I've written with a brief explanation, it's just kinda annoying because I don't remember every writing assignment from my other classes in college. Also, it gives a huge space to write about adversity...do you all think a diversity statement would suffice in its place? What did you guys do?

Congrats to everyone who was recently accepted by the way :)
