What are the best LLC's at Miami??

iluvurmomiluvurmom 0 replies1 threads New Member
In general, what are the LLC's that students tend to enjoy and that have a good reputation on campus? I know that the bigger LLC's usually get nicer dorms so it would be nice to know which ones are more popular.

    @iluvurmom My S19 and his roommate aren't doing a LLC, but they're rather confident they'll land okay. FWIW:These two are the neat, nerdy, and highly organized types who tend to be the ones you'd think would be concerned about something like which dorm they're living in. They're satisfied that as dorms go, Miami's are rather nice, so they feel like there's really no way to go wrong.

    If there are those out there who know otherwise, please chime in.

    I thought when they filled out the housing contract they were required to pick three LLC's. Is that not right?

    @jjct2019 LLCs aren't required; they're optional.

    Our daughter has found a roommate via social media. Are the 2 of them required to agree upon and select the same llc or they can't be roommates?

    @lexluther5 Yes, that's my understanding after speaking with housing. The students must login to the website and select each other and also select the exact same llc requests.

    @buckeyeinbama -- I don't think that's accurate for class of 2023. We were told by the housing folks at Miami that incoming freshman are required to choose a minimum of 3 LLCs. (And yes, we were also told that roommates had to select the same LLCs in the same priority order.)

    @kiminohio Below is what's posted on the Miami website in the Housing section, so if there's a mandatory change for class of 2023, it isn't readily available on their website. I guess we'll be calling them because my son and his roommate have already put in for housing. They listed one another's info., but neither one is interested in an LLC, particularly since they're both in the UHP and UASP. Although they're in different UASPs, they feel they already have built-in communities. Goodness knows they're going to be busy enough with those without adding an LLC on top. That seems like overkill to me. Am I crazy? (lol)

    "Living-Learning Communities
    First-year students have the option to live in living-learning communities. In these communities, an advisory council made up of students, staff, and faculty develop programs that support a particular theme, allowing you to live with other students who share some of your interests or field of study."
