Yeah, I got the letter last month. It's basically a two week seminar that gets you ready and familiar with Miami's law classes. I'm slowly preparing the required essays. And no, I dont think everyone got this.
So is the summer institute a prereq. for enrollment in the fall...? Also how did it come about were you on hold before the summer program letter---etc.? Is it for those whose scores were slightly lower..? And just curious what essays does it entail that you said you are presently working on?
Just curious what it entails and if it offers another chance at hope...
No, it's not a prereq...you dont have to go if you dont want to. I wasnt on hold...I was accepted after 1 week going complete with $60k scholly, and weirdly enough I got the letter about the institute 2 days before I received the acceptance email...so I was confused for a second...but anyways, I think maybe its for those with diverse backgrounds because the essays are about how you've contributed to social change and your and economic background.
Actually, I think anyone accepted to UM can apply. You can download the application off the website. But maybe because I'm a URM and have contributed to my community is why they sent it to me. Just my thoughts. I really have no idea.
But as far as your chances at getting in, I'm hoping that after the April 15th seat dep deadline, seats will open up (I'm hoping this is true so I can get into other schools I still have yet to hear from!) Keep hope alive!!
