I was recently notified of being an "alternate" at the University of Miami. Looks like another person on this board (cascagrossa) experienced this once before too and got in. I know my LSAT is low at 150 but I have a 3.8 UGPA and a very impressive resume. Not bragging at all, just saying it may help cushion my crappy LSAT. I applied last year to Miami and was placed in a "hold" category. After emailing the admissions dept recently, I found out that an alternate is a lot better status. I've already written a letter of continued interest, and sent an additional letter of rec. Does anyone else have any ideas or insight into my chances or steps I should take? I visited the campus last year and may write them mentioning that again. I can't afford to go visit again though.thanks!!!
