U of Miami is the first school I was admitted to back in December. I kind of wrote it off because most of me wants to stay on the west coast, but I can't get the idea of going there out of my head.

I'm seriously considering a visit.

Interesting. I'm not counting on any money but I applied and got in around the same time you did. Congrads on the money!

Apparently they've been telling people they're out of money so you may be part of the last round. Guess we'll see.

A friend of mine visited and said Coral Gables is about as close to Paradise as he thinks he will ever see. If Miami wasn't asking 30,000 sticker I'd probably have already decided to go. As it stands I am still considering it but waiting to hear from other schools that cost less. If the school threw me a few scraps I'd likely sign up for admission the next day.

Yeah. They gave me 20k per year. This site has so many bad things to say about the school though it makes me hesitant. :|

I'm really deciding between Tulane, Miami, and San Diego.

Im also between Miami and San Diego. You hear about $$ from USD?

Also, Despite all the negatives on TLS, my searching through nlj 250 firms and speaking to some Miami residents says that Miami places very well, and has a strong rep.

Yeah. I would imagine that it does place well and have a strong rep. I guess I can't buy into all of the pessimism regarding the school on this site.

As for USD, I just got accepted a few days ago. I am expecting some scholarship money though. Looks like we might be future classmates haha.
