Linzy: you're hot! I like that attitude! Why did you take your picture off? We're going to be great friends next year.

I got nervous because I watched a lifetime movie about a girl who gets cyberstalked and killed so I took my pic down, but thanks for the compliment! Yea, i'm not into sugercoating things but I try to be as polite as possible - I mean, I am not posting on other school specific boards so I think it's a little wierd that someone would be so interested in talking all about UM and Miami if they dont live there or plan to attend the school. By the way, today is my birthday! All my friends took me out to dinner and it was really fun but I got really sad because I wont be able to see them when I move, which is soon. I am leaving July 11 and I haven't even started to pack or set up my utilities or do anything so I feel really overwhelmed. I'm going to miss all my friends but after talking to you guys it seems like I have already met some great people - I cant wait to meet ya'll in person!
Hey all,I'm just finishing up the last week of the JWJ summer institute and I wanted to share my experiences. At the risk of sounding preachy, I'd like to give my thoughts.1. UM is a great school. I can't begin to tell you how much I have enjoyed my time here. The instructors are interesting, the campus beautiful and the city is amazing. I cannot begin to say how grateful I am to be coming here.2. Be prepared for the fact that law school is like high school. Although the majority of the people that I met here were great, there was some drama. There was a ton of gossip, people talked behind everyone's back and there was a great deal of immaturity. It is also amazing how some of the people actually were accepted to UM. 3. Be sure to take a break before law school. If you have a job, leave early. We only took 3 courses, but the work was intense. Multiply it by three and it is evident that we won't be having a break until Christmas. Be sure to take time off when you can.Just my thoughts. Hope everyone is having a great summer. Be sure to enjoy it.
Thanks for the update croquetdc, I really enjoyed reading about your observations and insights, and thanks for the advice. I'm going to go look up the differences between contracts and licenses today. However, what is the point of this summer program for 20 select students? I just don't get it, law school grading is so subjective to begin with, law school competition is so extremely fierce, why would Miami give 20 students an unfair edge?
