Wait List / Re: FIU and St. Thomas Wait List

Good luck.  I hope you get into FIU...especially since I'm on the waitlist at SLU!  :)  I'm in at Nova too and waitlisted at Miami as well.

I would recommend responding immediately saying you're interested in staying on the waitlist, then send them an email or letter within a week.  You want to make sure to accept but don't want to risk rushing your first chance to impress the committee into accepting you off the waitlist.

Wait List / Alternate at Miami
« on: April 19, 2007, 02:59:08 PM »
I was recently notified of being an "alternate" at the University of Miami.  Looks like another person on this board (cascagrossa) experienced this once before too and got in.  I know my LSAT is low at 150 but I have a 3.8 UGPA and a very impressive resume.  Not bragging at all, just saying it may help cushion my crappy LSAT. :)  I applied last year to Miami and was placed in a "hold" category.  After emailing the admissions dept recently, I found out that an alternate is a lot better status.  I've already written a letter of continued interest, and sent an additional letter of rec.  Does anyone else have any ideas or insight into my chances or steps I should take?  I visited the campus last year and may write them mentioning that again.  I can't afford to go visit again though.

thanks!!!
