so what would be the commute time from brickell to the university in the morning and from the university in the evening?
In terms of entertainment, are there other places other than South Beach to hang out at (places that are'nt so touristy) like bars and lounges.
Also whats the deal with the grade curve at Miami? I know it was mentioned somewhere before. I think at Miami, it is something like a B+ or B. What does it mean to have a B+/B grade curve?
I believe it is offically a B curve but a student I talked to said everybody thinks it is actually more like a C+.
OH MY GOSH I just got off hold and I'm in at UMaryland!!! I received the phone call 10 minutes ago, and I have a seat in the fall 2005 class. I can't believe it, UMaryland here I come!! Good Luck to everyone, and I'll be withdrawing my applications from UConn, Temple, Rutgers, Ohio State, Hofstra and Northeastern. To those on the UMaryland hold list - you can do it!!

good luck with job hunting in Boston and apt hunting in Miami!Hello all! So I'm officiall going to Miami in the fall. I can't wait! I never thought it would be the kind of city I would want to live in, but after visiting and reading about it, I stand corrected. I'm a little intimidated about finding an apartment, but I'm confident that it will work out. I'm 26, currently in Boston looking for a brief summer job. Spent the last few years in Japan. What else? I love books and music above all things, and wine just after. Proximity to the ocean is essential to me. Right now as I'm typing this I'm looking out at boats going by. My favorite foods are sushi, honest-to-G-d Italian food, and curry. Like a previous poster, I was a DJ during college, though I've lost any skills I might once have had. That's about it. Can't wait to meet you all. The prospective students I met while visiting were amazing, really nice and not at all arrogant. You all seem great too. Talk to you later.
