Okay I am officially withdrawing on Monday. I was debating for a while between Case and Miami, but Case won me over. Only because they decided to give me money whereas Miami gave me nothing. Good luck to everyone. Seat deposit deadlines are only 12 days away... scary.

If you don't mind sharing--what were your numbers?


162 LSAT
and I did well at Wake (I don't disclose GPA info)

Just got admitted off the HOLD list too! I already put a seat deposit down elsewhere and had picked two waitlist schools, but Miami is really, really tempting. I may be taking a trip down shortly .

Congrats to all those who got in off the hold list!

---it appears a lot of people got off the hold list on 4/2--this makes me nervous i wonder if they already sent all their hold acceptances...

I withdrew yesterday. They offered no money, leaving me with a loan of 61k. I am going to Loyola-Chicago instead.

I have deferred my acceptance. Hopefully this will open up a spot for someone on the wait list. Good luck.

So is Miami a clown school? Has there anyone who has ever been rejected? This is getting scary. And will i get any money? Who could pay 36 thousand a year without room and board? Thats basically telling you we accepted you to reject you.

I hope i get into Cardozo , Wisconson or another schoolif Miami gives me no money.

so i went to miami's website and went to the ask um section and read how to get a status checker--so i contacted the individual who provides the status checker and she responded back via email

"your file is in review....you will hear from us soon"

and i don't know what to make of this....it makes me nervous becuase she didn't give me a status checker--i may be reading too much into this but....what do you think?

unless thats what they meant by status check...
