does anything know if there is a group on facebook for accepted students?

I believe she said she will send out invites once class is filled for the Facebook page!

Depends on where you are driving from, if it’s agaisnt traffic or with traffic. Miami traffic can be pretty bad. There are new apartment buildings near the campus area  in Fountainbleau/Doral which is close to Campus.

When did they notify you that you were on the wait list? I'm #1 on the waitlist right now. I just my email an hour ago.

Where would you be commuting from? I’m looking in the pembroke pines area and am thinking mine would be about 45-1 hr too

I’ve been looking mainly in Doral and up near pembrooke. Pembrooke pines is just a little far. It’s like 45-1 hr without traffic which is scary lol.

I know I’m nervous too about it!! Doral is a nice area. My fiancé is starting to apply for jobs in both Fort Lauderdale and Miami so our thought process is Pembroke Pines is essentially half way if he works in Fort Lauderdale but I’m hoping he finds a job in Miami 🤞🏻

Hey guys! I went to FIU for undergrad. I lived some years in west kendall and to make it to my 8/9 am class it would take me 45 minutes.  Without traffic, it was 15 minutes. 

My last year I moved to the west miramar area (literally 5 minutes south from pines/1 exit down on I-75) and for my 8 am/ 9 am classes it would take me 40 minutes and without traffic 25 minutes. 

Realistically speaking,  no matter where you live in Miami you're going to get a lot of traffic. My best advise would be to arrive to school early and study before your day starts. After class, go to the gym or study some more and then go home so you don't waste so much time in traffic

Nothing yet “/ Does anyone know when the deposits were/are due for the individuals who were accepted? 

Thanks! 

Good Luck for everyone on the waitlist *crossing fingers* 🙂

I believe deposits were due March 29. Could be different date for those offered acceptance off the waitlist though.
