Well, if you're willing to consider University of Miami, you might also consider Stetson since Stetson's scores are a tiny bit lower than UM's (median for Stetson: 156, median for Miami: 158-9). Stetson is also private but it costs ~5,000 less a year than UM.
Although, you mentioned that UM was a "strech school" for you, and Stetson wouldn't be quite such a steretch. One thing you should remember though about both Stetson and UM is that both are in SUPER EXPENSIVE South FL so your cost of living needs to be taken into account. Also, UM helps you find "affordable" housing while Stetson does not.
I'm sorry, I don't know much about the other schools you mention but I do know quite a bit about Stetson and UM if you're interested.
i think i will definitely give Stetson a close look then. my scores were named as on the bottom margin of Miami and i was told to consider it my stretch school but if Stetson is a decent school with similarities running through it compared to Miami i'll definitely give it a look. can you give me a brief overview of what the school is like?
