Negotiating Scholarships for Santa Clara

Postby irlaxgirl » Mon Mar 20, 2017 8:54 pm

Does anyone know how feasible negotiating with Santa Clara is? They gave me 27k not renewable (despite being well over 75th percentile) but I have other schools​ that are closely ranked to them offering much larger scholarships like Loyola Chicago for 30k a year renewable and Syracuse similarly. I really want into Santa Clara's​ IP program. Any help would be appreciated.

Don't bother negotiating, because you shouldn't go to Santa Clara if you want to be a lawyer. Over half their graduating class wasn't working as a lawyer after school, and most of that group was unemployed.

You should be focusing on a region based on the schools you're looking at, so focus on schools in the area you want to work. And don't go to any of these institutions for less than a full ride, because none of the places you listed offer you realistic chances at a salary that will help you pay off your debt.

Are you eligible to take the patent bar? If so, Santa Clara may be worth attending with a full ride and a desirable STEM degree.

Is the half of the class with a legal job after graduation the half which passed the patent bar?

There is no such thing as a bad school that's actually great for patent law.
