It means you've been accepted. You probably knew that though.


No, I didn't know because it doesn't say anything about being accepted or congratulations or anything about a seat deposit. Is that how yours worked?

As soon as I logged in for the first time I was greeted with a screen congratulating me on being accepted.

Well then you're probably not accepted, or at least not yet. You'll know in the next 2 weeks I'm sure.

+1 the adcoms are the nicest people. Even the financial aid office was great.

Would it be considered rude for me to call and inquire about any potential scholarships? Or is that ok?

Already did so I'll save you the trouble.

Merit based scholarships will come in the mail in a couple weeks. Need based will come late March with FAFSA results.

it doesn't mean anything. i logged in over the weekend. i think if you're an applicant, then you're in the system. i called them today and the lady told me that a decision has not been made, but i would hear "within a week or so." Considering that people who have gone complete around the time I did (mid january) have all been accepted, I think they rejected me. the "within week or so" means the time it takes for the letter to arrive.

Sadly it was the exact same DVD that they sent me with their packet that came in the mail offering me the fee waiver.

Err...
The first time I used the status checker, I swear I remember a welcome to miami you have been accepted screen. Never since then. I just go straight on to the system. I wrote to them asking about what the situation was and asked how long the letter took to go out... am I in or not? :oops:

Exactly, they will tell you over the phone if you've been accepted.
