If you send in a voided check and UM's form, you can have the funds direct deposited. Otherwise, i guess they print out a check for you to deposit. I have Washington Mutual for my bank, since they have branches all over the country, so you may want to set up an account with them or B of A (although they suck because they have fees for everything). My only concern is that we get our money the first day of classes so that means that we have to save enough to buy our books for those classes before we get our money. And does anyone know when we have to pay for the parking permit? It's $400 so I'd like to wait until after I receive my loan funds, but I read that there are a limited amount of passes avail, so I don't want to wait too long and not get one. And, I think I read that the 1st 2 weeks of school we can park for free and then we have to have the permit. Is this true?

It's funny, isn't it, how they give us our loans AFTER classes have started? I kind of wish they (the schools, the government, whoever) were a little more upfront about the loans in general. They should really point out that, regardless of the aid your recieve, you'll need to have several thousand dollars in the bank to begin law school and that the loans will really NOT cover the cost of attending- unless perhaps you live in a closet and eat beans everynight.

VeniceJazz, I feel the same way. Plus, when you figure in the disbursement fees we get a decent amount less than we're supposed to.

I had to leave Miami this weekend for a friend's wedding and I am missing every single pre-orientation event that I had any interest in attending.  I may try to go to the baseball game when I get back. 
Going to Miami
