Hi Guys I am new to this forum and excited. I have been accepted at miami as you can see and that's all for now. I applied to four about crazy.....but well, I did and I am waiting anxiously especially from SMU my alma mater and Howard University. Howard is cheaper tuitionwise and SMU is higher ranked. If I get into both I will be torn for sure...any recommendations? suugestions? words of encouragement???

Good luck

Your name means "you have given us (a special gift, I suppose)" in the language of my native country. Good luck!

THANKS- shona

I am from zimbabwe and yeah that's what my name means. I suspect u r from there too? thanks for the wishes I am anxious...hopefully something comes up soon

Howard is better than SMU in my opinion. Its ranked lower because of certain things that employers do not seem to care about. Look at their OCI and the average starting salaries and you will see that employers respect Howard more than US News would want us to believe.

Congrats on a good day - Howard and SMU in one day - way too much excitement!

Congrats on your recent acceptance to Howard! I just got an email from them myself yesterday so I'm pretty excited as well. Was there any mention of scholarship money or financial aid in your email? The email seemed pretty generic and I'm hoping they're saving that info for the actual letter I get in the mail. In the email, the dean said that a formal letter was mailed and that I should recieve it shortly. I live in Maryland so hopefully it comes today...On another note, I concur with the statements made by 'Howard' above. HUSL is a highly respected school both in the MD/DC/VA area and nationally in terms of other HBCU's. Because of their excellent connections their students benefit tremendously from OCI's, internship opportunities, and ultimately employment that nets some of the highest starting salaries in the nation.

Hi there, congrats on SMU! i was just wondering when you hear the scholarship info. did it comes with our acceptance package or later? Thanks..

Where you headed?

Have you decided which school you are going to attend? I\'ll be going to SMU in the fall and was wondering if we\'ll be seeing each other then.

How do you like Miami

Hello, I'm curious as to how Miami is going for you and if you are happy with your decision.
