They do still teach Contracts in your law schools, right? Does anyone remember the mirror-image rule? What happens when an offeree attempts to negotiate an offer? Doesn't that constitute a rejection and counter-offer?
Obviously a flame, but...
This is nonsense. You're discouraging prospectives from negotiating scholarship stipulations because JMLS could maybe
respond by rescinding their shitty offer. I don't think they would do that, even if they can, because it's not in their self-interest. They offered you the scholarship in the first place as an incentive to attend. Why revoke the only reason you have for attending, and virtually ensure that you withdraw? Even if they can do it, they probably won't.
For the sake of argument, however, let's assume that they do rescind your offer. What have you lost? A full-ride to a TTTT where you scarcely have a chance at ever practicing law. Is that really worse than going, losing your scholly, and paying for a shit school?
Really, if you can't meet those sTTTTips (or more realistically crack top 5-10%) you should probably drop out anyways.
