That's what I thought. That's why I'm asking.

They're notifying people already? Has anyone even gotten an update or receipt of confirmation as per the scholarship instructions?

I heard they are supposed to determine winners by the end of the week. I don't know if that means they will notify all applicants by then too.


A FB friend posted about receiving a $10,000 scholarship from the ABA today. Any idea how they're notifying everyone?


Isn't the scholarship for 15k?



Must be a different scholarship, the ABA LOS is 15K..5K per year for 3 years

I don't think anyone did. One of my friends called the office and was told they would select winners by the end of the week

Its 5K but if you go to one of the schools that matches, its 10K per year.

Still haven't heard a peep. I keep thinking maybe they just scrapped it this year. I know, sounds a bit extreme, but with no confirmation of receipt and no notification when some people have already started law school it just seems a bit odd.
