Just got my acceptance notice yesterday! It's cool that UM is so fast with the decisions.

Any idea of the chances I have at getting into UF or FSU?

156 LSAT, 3.21 UGPA (3.39 LSDAS GPA)

Congrats to everyone accepted! One of my best friends is a 2L at Miami, and she loves it.

MYUM and the admitted students website are two different things. Myum allows you to check your status (the one you're able to ste up an account with) and the admitted students website doesn't recognize your SS/Bday combo b/c it won't be up until Feb is what the assistant admin director said.

That MYUM link takes me to a website: "CaneID Authentication Service" where it asks me to log-in using my Cane ID and pw, which I don't have. When I try to set up an account and input my SS number (with and w/o hyphens) and DOB, it gets me an error page.

When I set up the myum I don't remember it asking for my ss and dob. I remember that when I tried to set up an acount on the Admitted Students Website :?

The link you posted above takes me here: https://caneid.miami.edu/cas/login?serv ... dcheck.asp

When I click on first-time user, it asks for my SS or CaneID and my DOB.

I got an email 2 days ago explaining how to check my application status, and when to the site. When I logged in, I saw that I had been accepted.

Miami is not my first choice, but I wouldn't mind attending there. I live in the Miami area, so it would be very convinient to go to UM Law, but I want go to a school out of state.

I'm waiting to see if they offer me money. Without it, I probably won't be attending...

It's tempting, but I don't really want to move back to south FL for personal reasons..
