The University of Miami School of Law is offering incentives to its incoming Fall 2009 students, to defer starting at the school until Fall 2010.
The school says a higher than usual number of accepted offers has created a “larger than optimal” first year class.
Those who accept the deferral will get a $5,000 scholarship upon completing 120 hours of public interest work; increased likelihood of selection for a $75,000 Miami Scholars Scholarship; and a better shot at getting 2010 scholarships.
The University of Miami School of Law, founded in 1926, is located in Coral Gables, Florida. According to US News & World Report, the school is ranked 71st among all law schools, with its tax law program ranked 6th in the nation. The law school was ranked 26th overall in the annual 2009 Judging the Law Schools rankings.
