wait...i'm confused...i knew the curve effected the class...i didnt realize that each section had a separate curve...so grade distrubution is curved by section and not just through the whole class?

I'm right with you Vagator on the scholly stacking. I'll be down there for ASD as well and planned on asking the same question. Making a small mini-vacation out of it. Good way to get a break from work.

Anyone hear any news about the named full-tuition scholarships?
I really want one of those and I think my stats are competitive...

Yeah, I don't think they read my letters or personal statement due to how quickly I received a decision.

Why doesnt Miami allow bargaining for scholarships?
Apparently I didnt qualify for one of their 15 fully schollys, so its either 23k a year or bust.

Yea, they give out 15 full, and they said that I wasnt one of them. I asked for more money, they said no.

Hey kbigs, I believe we have very similar numbers. You would think we could get more being that we are way above their 75% lsat and their median GPA. It kinda sucks.

Obviously, but getting full tuition from similarly ranked or better schools makes it difficult to choose miami.
Also, a lot of schools allow negotiation, Miami doesnt.

That's too bad. If I could even get a little more than 10K/yr Miami would be higher on my list.

I should have done that to begin with. Therese is super helpful. I don't feel like bugging them again, plus the odds of me getting one of the schollies is like .1%
