Does anyone know if UMiami is still awarding scholarships?  I got accepted a little over two weeks ago and haven't heard anything.  163/3.33

You might get the standard 23k scholarship they give away to people with 160+ LSAT.  Some people around here with similar LSAT has said that they write to UM and then get scholarship.  I tried but seems like my 156 got me nowhere even when I brought to their attention that higher ranked school gave me full tuition.  But it's ok.  I got better offers from other schools anyways.  I do hope you get a scholarship, though.

Has anyone heard yet about the scholarship weekend?  Since it's so soon I would have guessed someone would have heard by now.

I've got very similar numbers (3.1/161) and got no scholarship either.  I think they start scholarships with 3.2+/160+ students, so we just missed the cut.  You could probably send them an email and try and negotiate a scholarship, but I don't know how successful that would be.

I (160, 3.08) sent an email to them about a week ago asking if I could have some of my scholarship offers from other (higher ranked) schools matched, but have yet to get a response.
2L and counting...

They usually let you know within a few weeks I think.  From what a lot of people are saying it seems like 160+ and above a 3.0 gets you $69,000.  Maybe you should contact them to make sure they have your new Feb score and see if they will take that into account to offer you some money!
