Thanks! I'm just applying to the University of Miami because it is the only other Tax LLM program in Florida besides the University of Florida(which I'm pretty sure that I can not get into).

Thanks for your response! I'm hoping to stay in Florida due to my husband's job.  But you are right in that a wider net may be appropriate.
