just got into Michigan...

Postby luisatorres2010 » Thu Feb 02, 2012 10:14 pm

Hello friends,

Two days ago, I got my first law school acceptance letter in the mail. It commended me on my personal statement and included an addendum explaining the steps I needed to take to confirm acceptance of a spot in Michigan's incoming class. Nowhere on this letter did they mention anything about financial aid or grants or scholarships. Does this mean I definitely will not receive financial aid from Michigan and I will be limited loans and government grants through FAFSA? Do all students impressive enough to get scholarships learn of the scholarship offer specifics as soon as they are offered admission?

Sorry, I'm sure this seems like a painfully stupid question. I'm the first member of my family to go to school in the USA and have limited knowledge resources. Any help and information would be appreciated.

Thank you for your time.

I got the acceptance letter from Michigan before I heard anything about scholarships. Also check the page titled Money and Mail on the admitted students site.

It usually comes a couple of weeks after acceptance.

The Michigan class of 2015 or Michigan Applicants/Acceptances threads would be better places to ask this.
