    Save your money.

    Why would anyone want to go to a humid, sweltering, sometimes swampy, always insect-infested hole-in-the-wall? It's not like any of the schools there are highly ranked or even in the Top 40 for that matter.

    Eeeek. Florida for four years? :eek:

    You're better off without...

    I called the admissions office because I've had mine's for over 2-3 weeks also. They said that they still accept it later than that. I guess the deadline is just to get ppl to submit things earlier.

    Hello, guys, I was stupid enough to submit my amcas appl. pretty late - 3rd of Sept., so I did not get a secondary from Miami yet, although I am expecting it. Do you mind sharing the essay questions from it or some format, so I will be prepared for when it comes. I hope it does not come off arrogant, I would love to share as much info as possible. Hopefully this year we will have the same kind of support from each other as the last year Florida schools applicants?!!! Love, Val.:love:

    sure val...spacing is a bit off, but there is enough room to handwrite about 10 lines on the computer..around 100 words per short, and the two narratives have plenty of space. 1/2 page each.

    Personally, I think FL's weather is great after living in NY and Boston for 14 years....I don't have to worry about freezing rain and snow and slush and gray skies everyday. I just put on shorts and a tank top and go to class. :) I LOVE it here :D

    Blitz, you should still send it in since you're a FL resident (You have a good shot) :)

    I just wanted to thank Blitkrieg for the info. The site was down, so I could not thanks you earlier, but it is well appretiated. It looks like they want very short essays , which is great.
    And I too love the Florida weather!!!!:love: I will catch up with the fellow Florida applicants if any new developments present themselves.

    Are you a complete moron or do you just impersonate one on SDN? First off, you can't possibly live here since your decription is one of Louisiana and not South Florida. Yesterday, for example you ignoramous, it was 88 with a 10mph breeze and partly cloudy.

    Its not like we actually need people like YOU here anyway. We have enough stupid people who can't vote. Don't come here. You'll just make rush hour worse. Moron.
