What stats do you guys have? Any money? Also, when are applications out for 06? Sorry for the questions but I'm excited to have found a small little network even before starting :)

i dont think applications change much from year to year, so you could just get a hold of the 05 one if you wanted to start working on it over the summer.  i think the 06 application will be available in september.

as for stats, i have a really low gpa and really high lsat.  check out www.lawschoolnumbers.com for a decent picture of what miami's decision process looks like.

Over twenty people with less than a 157 were accepted on LSN.

although i cannot say for sure, i believe that timing has a lot to do with "border" admits to the university of miami, as with any other school, of course.  those that were getting accepted in the beginning of the cycle with indexes of around 3 maybe would have been waitlisted or even denied a few months after.  for anyone seeking admission to miami, GET YOUR APPLICATION IN EARLY!!!

i said my piece,

Wondering what everyone thought about the job market in Miami - not only firm jobs but also consulting and in-house positions?  I know the tourist/entertainment industry is fairly large for the miami area, but what about other business areas?  I have only heard bad things about Miami's Career Center, so finding a job will be tough.  And not everyone will graduate at the top of the class, so this is a possibility for many.

I personally am interested in i-banking and was planning on getting the MBA as well and Miami seems to be well situated for this business area (see excerpt). I am not looking for a typical firm job.  I would be happy to accept an exec/mgt position.

Does anyone have any perspective/personal experiences on this?



Excerpt from a website:

Situated on a 260-acre tropical campus in the community of Coral Gables, the University of Miami School of Business Administration has been called the "Ivy League School of the South." Located at the gateway to Latin America, the University of Miami provides unique educational opportunities in a global community, serving as a major center for Latin American and Caribbean business studies. America's Network ranks Miami as number 5 among the world's top 20 telecom hubs, and as second in the nation, behind New York City, in international banking. Peterson's recently ranked Miami among the top five cities in America for pursuing education. With a diverse educational program and an international community, the University of Miami School of Business provides a unique opportunity to earn an MBA degree. Upon graduation, University of Miami students become a part of the sixth-largest alumni network in the country. The School of Business recently erected a $23 million facility complete with computer access at every seat, a "paperless" library with a full-time librarian, a computer lab exclusive to MBA students, and high-tech classrooms. As a "wireless" campus, the University of Miami provides remote online access.

hey! I'm also considering the JD/MBA option..i think Linzy started a thread about this somewhere else

i'm taking the GMAT this summer, not stressing cause i hear its way easier than the LSAT...

but anyhow I think its an awesome idea.. you'll be working with two career services offices from the school upon graduation.. if you decide to do corporate law, most big law firms will start you off as a second year associate if you have the dual degree.. so thats a bonus...and there are sooo many international banks on brickell, I'm sure internships are plentiful there.. you'll have three summers to do cool things with, internships, summer associateship jobs, etc... so you're resume will seem more impressive too...its only an extra year or semester, depending on how many summers you do.. so its worth it..

I'm stressed about the GMAT. I haven't had a math class since high school algebra. I bought the Princeton Review GMAT study book and have been looking it over. You must complete it all on computer, with NO calculator and NO scratch papar. How the heck am I supposed to figure all the algebra and geometry out in my head?? I'm just really not a math person.

Has anyone found an apartment yet?
