Sep 05 2006Communications I graduated from the Newhouse school but was not originally admitted there-- instead they put me in arts and sciences. It worked out great. On your application put that you want to be in newhouse but as a second choice arts and sciences. THen you have 4 semesters to transfer in. And the credits are so easy to transfer between schools and get your core credits done early. and it doesn't put you behind at all.
Jan 04 2006Other When I originally applied, I was not focused on my UM application, since my family and I were under the misconception that it should be my "safety" school. Instead, I was focused on my Brown application. In the end, with an acceptance from both, I realized that Miami was more the place for me. However, I had exceptional numbers and resume. I have a 4.3 GPA (I'm the definition of an over-achiever) decent ACT (29), and enough extra-curriculars to kill someone. Plus, my teacher recommendations ( I sent in many more than needed) where mind-blowing. Therefore, my advice to getting in is not very good, however I know that every year UM is getting tougher and tougher. Plus, it is not cheap. My school costs $40,000, which can give many parents a heart-attach. Therefore, if you think you will have trouble financialy, definitly think about whether or not you want to apply. I recomment it, because of financial aid and scholarhsips, but scholarships can be difficult.
