The letter they sent with scholarship info said they would be selecting finalists for full ride scholarships, notify finalists mid-feb, and then fly candidates down at the University's expense to be interviewed. Hopefully we'll get some love.

They said they may not fly people down this year. I really want to go to Miami, but I cant see myself turning down an equal scholarship or a full ride at a better ranked school.
With the 23K/year, tuition is about 14k/year, right?

I thought tuition was around 34k so that would be 11k/year

I just went on the UM website, and there was a link to apply for Dean. Do they not have one?
Should I apply for that as well?

So if not flying people down does that mean they are skipping the intereview process and just selecting candidates?

The person said she was unsure, but yeah, they might just select candidates.

Check earlier in this thread. I think someone said something about no needs-based schollies offered at Miami.

Just spoke to Miami-in the past they gave need-based, but they said based on the economic climate it doesnt seem likely this year. :cry:

This answer to my question may be found somewhere earlier in this thread, but I can't search through 20 pages at this point. So here I go:

For those of you who received scholarship letters from Miami, about how long after your acceptance letter did the scholarship letter arrive?

And for those of you who did not get a scholarship offer from Miami, did you still receive some sort of letter talking about financial aid in general?

How long after the acceptance email/status checker did you get the acceptance packet/scholarship info in the mail?

It took 12 days for me, but people who found out on the same day as I did received it sooner.

Just got the acceptance packet. For those of you who received scholarships - did they come with the acceptance packet or in another separate envelope? I have no mention of scholarship in this packet and would really need one to strongly consider Miami as a viable option.

separate

This answers my question...but did it come on the same day or later?
