My question is, I received around $90 from Loyola Law School....Do you think it is reasonable to bring up Loyola Law School in my e-mail, or is it too far behind from Boston College in the rankings?

Any opinions would be GREATLY appreciated.


Um. Where do you want to practice? That should dictate where you attend, not the money. BC and Loyola are regional schools (both third in their markets). Also, it would be unethical for you to mention that LLS offered you 90k without mentioning the stipulations on retaining the scholarship past the first year.

I don't think it will impress them, but I don't see how it can hurt.

I see you are from CA. You would be a moron to go to BC hoping to come back to CA. Sorry.

I think the time has come and gone- but i would tell them about the 90k scholly. Worst case is they say no. But in reality you should figure out where you want to practice.

if you want NYC- the choice would be BC.
plenty of time to negotiate still- email it ( to financial aid dean, or dean of admissions) monday morning.

best of luck- worst that dcan happen is they say no

It is sleazy not to identify the school. It does not reflect well on your ethics. You are obviously hoping that they think you are sitting on a scholarship from UCLA or USC.

Don't think it will be convincing but it can't hurt you
