I'm really interested in Miami but I'm seriously thinking about withdrawing. I got accepted 2-3 weeks ago and no scholly info. If I don't get a scholly I don't' think I'm going. Temple gave me $$ and they're higher ranked...

Still very strongly considering accepting the Miami offer. Want to hear back from a few other schools first.

Email Therese Lambert in Admissions. She was very straightforward and helpful when I talked to her.

:( I really hope that's not true because UM is my top choice but I don't know how I feel about attending without a scholarship.

Ms. Lambert told me this. But this doesnt mean you wont recieve anything. They may have allocated the money (some to you) and dont have any more for new applications.

Got a weird letter today just reminding me of the little open house/tour thing they have in later March. Guess just reminding me to come by and take a tour of the school. Just seems like a waist of money to send this kind of thing out instead of just sending it in e-mail form when it isn't anything big. Anyone else get this?

I got the same letter in the mail today, just to remind us to stop by at their March thing. I'm going though, unless I have to work. I also visited UM, they have a recruiting office, I spoke with the lady in charge. She was nice but basically told me that if after your acceptance letter you don't receive any money within 2 weeks, then forget it (by the facial expression, I could tell that what she really meant was if you don't get any money by the time you actually got your letter of acceptance, then forget it.) I like UM, I really do, but at this point, Its hard seeing myself paying full price (its a hard pill to swallow, $160,000.) I am kinda losing sleep over this. Any else feel the same about paying full price?

I feel the same way. I got into LSU and Nebraska, schools with similar rank as UM, still waiting on some others. Miami would be a great place to live but the price...yikes.

Visited other schools in the state, and I am sorry, but I just don't have the money or the attitude for Miami, probably withdrawing in a week or so, just to be sure, good luck kiddos!

I do not want to pay full price. My mom works at UM and if I weren't married I could benefit from 75% off tuition. I really had my heart set on moving back to SoFlo to be closer to family and friends. North Florida has lost its charm, but no $$$ really only leaves FIU for me. But since I do not have Big Law aspirations (looking into public sector jobs), it may be for the best.

Unless FSU or UF have anything to say about it...they are taking their sweet time.

My parent also works at UM - however, it was my understanding that law students do not qualify for tuition remission. This is from the UM website:
COURSES EXCLUDED FOR TUITION REMISSION - Tuition remission is not available in the following:
- School of Law or School of Medicine
- Special programs including the Executive MBA....ect.

Please let me know if I am wrong, because that would very very likely guarantee that I would attend! :D

I just woke up to a nice message from Miami on Caneid. I've been accepted!!! Hopefully I either get a really good scholarship or accepted to the Miami Scholars Program. Either one would make me a very happy camper.
