Visits, Admit Days, and Open Houses / Re: My Visit to Miami
« on: February 21, 2005, 11:09:13 AM »
I am planning on checking out Miami in a couple of weeks (I currently live in Atlanta) and I was wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions on things to check out while I'm down there since I'm not from the area.  I've been to Miami only once before, so I have very little knowledge of the area.  I've already been accepted there so I am seriously considering it.  If anyone has any suggestions I would appreciate it very much.  (Where to look around at housing, shopping, things to check out on campus etc.)

Thanks in advance.

I'm so glad I read this thread...I checked my status online today and there was no date for the letter and I was freaking out.  But then I saw that they had removed it.  I can't believe I hadn't checked it in the past couple of I have no idea when it was mailed.  Argh...

You are so right...although it is from several different versions of Harpua (not just one).  I am very impressed, good job.  :o

I realize this.  But thanks for being a male private part about it.

You should apply to at least two schools that you would drop everything and go to immediately just because they were so great.  Especially if you have little to no chance of getting in there.  I mean...crazier things have happened.  But don't be like me and apply to like 10 schools that you have no chance at.  That is just a waste of money.

imtheantelope:  I named my cat Poster one ever gets the reference.  I'll be impressed if you do. 

In response to imtheantelope...thanks, i will definitely check out your thread as well.  And I am afraid to say that I ripped you off on your username idea...Phish is the greatest band ever though, so I guess it's okay.  Clever name.  Have you been to any shows?  (and yes I know this is off the topic of this thread)

I meant absolutely no disrespect to liberal arts schools in general.  It is just frustrating that all of the kids from the Ivies get like a 3.9 GPA and I'm stuck with a 3.2.  I understand that there are some liberal arts schools and probably even some Ivies that have grade deflation as well.  But if you go to an engineering school you know that vibe...all the teachers are trying to fail everyone, every A you get, you really earn.  So frustrating to be compared with schools that grade inflate. 

I think it depends on the grade inflation issue.  I'm coming from a top engineering school that actually has grade deflation and I think the law schools will take that into account when they look at my UGPA.  I know if I had gone to a liberal arts school my GPA would have been close to a 4.0, but I started out as an engineering major and everyone at my school (even the lib arts majors, who there aren't many of) have to take lots of science, calculus, and CS.  Our average GPA is below a 3.0, so I think my 3.26 will look better than a lib arts students 3.8 (or whatever).  Any thoughts?

Yay for hope!
