What Students Are Saying

Apply early action.
Sal from Metairie, LA
Join clubs or organizations! It's such an easy and fun way to make new friends while doing something you enjoy.
Kelly from Coral Gables, FL
UM is not Harvard or MIT but it is a very competitive academically. The student body and staff hold themselves to very high standards. So first and foremost, you need to be about academics if you want to come to my school. Not only that but a robust student. Extracurricular activities are very important.
Jude from Miami, FL
The essay portion of the application is crucial. Write something that makes you unique and shows that you have potential as a student. Don't be afraid to make it personal, either.
Brittany from Miami, FL
Definitely apply early action if you know this is the school for you! Join the facebook groups, they actually help. Everyone is really friendly and I got to know a couple of people even before I set foot on campus!
Mashail from Boynton Beach, FL
The University of Miami...Welcome to the wonderful world of wildlife, sports, nightlife, sunshine, academics and cultural diversity. UM sets high standards for its students and is constantly challenging us. Another good point to mention is the diversity aspect; we come from all over the world...literally. We are represented by the one and only Sebastian Ibis who never fails to get the crowd hype. And once you're apart of this family, there is no doubt that you'll bleed orange and green for life. The pride at the University of Miami runs thick as we support our fellow Hurricanes in all endeavors. So take a dive on the wild side and make sunny Coral Gables, FL and the University of Miami your college destination!
Jazzmyne @ UM
Study hard, play hard. That expression is so easy to accomplish here. On the one hand, you have numerous academic facilities just waiting to answer any question you might have. On the other hand, there's the nightlife of Miami, complete with 18+ clubs so that everyone can be legally included in the fun. Another tip: have fun. It's okay if you don't know what you want to study freshman year. That's what college is supposed to be for!! Explore your interests, figure out what you love and how to make a career out of it. Learn to love to learn.
Rachel from Coral Gables, FL
classes are small because the university wants its students to build relationships with professors, so do that. professors in your major will be excellent sources of research job opportunities, letters of recommendation, and mentoring.
use the on-campus amenities to the fullest. the wellness center is enormous and the perfect place to practice your sport or get in shape. sports games are free for students and a great way to spend an evening. shuttles are available for certain off-campus hotspots, and those are free with student id as well.

Make sure you explore all your options. While this is a great school, you need to make sure that the prospective major you are choosing is included at UM. Don't come here because you want to see warm weather - you have the rest of your life to see that. Come down to Miami because of the educational opportunities available here. Come down because you know you will receive the best undergraduate/graduate education here. Make your decisions after you visit all your chosen schools and make a decision based on financial need. It is very expensive to attend this school.
Bijal from Pembroke Pines, FL
Prospective students should know that the University of Miami takes the best subject score of the ACT. Should you take the ACT more than once it will take the highest composite score and break apart the subject scores from each test. It combines them all for your best possible scores.
