So scholarship offers come later from Miami? Maybe January?

I got mine two weeks after I was accepted.

Are you leaning towards Miami with the scholarship, or still hoping for UF?

The only reason I had almost ruled out Miami was because of its costs.  Now, my top four are Miami, FSU, UF and Tulane.  After I visit and get all my acceptances/aid packages I'll have a better idea of my top choice.

Miami really upset me yesterday, although it wasn't the law schools fault.  While going through my mail I saw a big envelope with the UM symbol printed in the upper lefthand corner.  I opened it up and found the letter inviting me to apply to some Miami semester for visiting students in the spring.  After thinking about it for a few minutes, I realized that I got this letter just about every year since I was accepted to their UG school, but for a minute I was really ticked off.

In today at UM.  Acceptance letter dated 11/28.  I didn't go complete until like 11/20 or so though because of a problem with my rec letters. 

But nonetheless, YAY   ;D

Job placement stuff aside, there's nowhere else I'd rather attend.


Does Miami have poor job placement? I would plan on staying in Miami so I don't know if that's as big of a concern?

To answer your question ... (a) I'm speaking in relation to other institutions that I think I'll get into, and (b) I really don't know!  UMiami does better than similarly ranked institutions, and I've heard so many times that Miami firms LOVE hiring UMiami grads.  That said, the class size is big (~1500), and I don't think a very high percentage of them are employed (about top 10-20% get "biglaw" jobs, from what I gather).

I'd like a little more certainty on this before I make up my mind, though.

Total number of students at the law school is ~1,100--each class size is about 400.
