They have a full, official match program that includes all of the T14 except Northwestern.
Enjoy Berkeley with 25k/year
I read the same thing. It's in this thread: http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/v ... 5&t=111317
The post specifically said: Students admitted to Berkeley Law that have also received a scholarship offer from one of the 12 law schools listed below can apply for a Berkeley Law Matching Scholarship.
New York University
University of Chicago
University of Michigan
University of Pennsylvania
University of Virginia
I don't know the specifics, but according to this you should
be able to get at least $25K from Boalt
I guess they really know who their competitors are huh.
Error or anti-Northwestern trolling?
I heard it's because Northwestern gives away too much money. NU gives out a ton of half-rides, IIRC.
Also, be forewarned that Boalt doesn't automatically match most scholarships. As far as I can tell, the purpose of the program is to give Berkeley a way to prevent only the most desirable candidates from going elsewhere on account of money offers Berkeley would be willing to match. From what I heard from my classmates and from other TLSers last year, most of the people who get scholarships at other T14s will not get a matching offer at Berkeley. But if you get into HYSC and also get an offer at a peer school, you might luck out.
