My best friend from undergrad goes to MSU. I do not know whether it is true or not, but she told me that some students who had offers from other law schools basically went to the admissions office and asked for money/or more money. Please be advised that I cannot confirm the above. I have only heard stories. If I have to be honest, I do not think that people can just go to the admissions office and start bargaining for a better scholarship.
Wow, like you, I think that seems almost *too* easy, but nevertheless I hope I have similar luck. Does your bf from undergrad go to MSU for law? Would you be willing to pass along my contact info to him/her? I'd like to get in touch with a student to get their perspective on the school, etc.
I'm still debating whether I want to retake, but either way MSU is def on my list.
