Wow! I can't believe I received an acceptance so early~~~
I swore I'd be an "In at NOWHERE" person for quite some time.... if not forever. 

THERE'S HOPE FOR US MEDIOCRE FOLK! Yippppeeee!   ;D

Congratulations!  Is that your first choice school?

I would like to receive an acceptance from a Cali school, but I dunno if luck will be on my side when it comes to the schools that I applied to.  (Hastings, USD, and Santa Clara)  :-\

Congrats... do anything special to luck out (i.e. witchcraft, pagan rituals, good-luck diet, alcohol binging, prostitute-calling, texas hold-em fanaticism, etc.)?   If so, let me know...

Hmm... maybe my secret to acceptance is that this is the second time I'm applying to Miami?  :-X  Hehehe.

Gosh... Last year was rejection city.  Not a very fun time.  :'(  I'm glad I have one school under the belt this year...  :)

Congrats! I have your exact same stats and applied to Miami last year. I was waitlisted but ultimately rejected. It's good to know they let our kind in though. Good luck.

Congrats!

Not to sound dumb, is getting in with a 56% from chiashu considered a big reach?

I'm a little more conservative than most on this site, but yes, I would say that 40-60% constitutes a reach.  Getting in somewhere with less than a 40% chance (like 20% for me at a few of my schools) is next to impossible, in my opinion.
