My LSAT was not that great, but my GPA is high, my softs are strong, and I am a UM. I really want to go to UF and I think this is a good offer. Does anybody think I should try to negotiate for more, or is this probably the max I would get?
Is anybody else willing to share what they received? I'm curious to see how I compare.
What do you plan on saying that would not be dishonest and insulting to the law school kind enough to both accept you and offer you a scholarship that you yourself think fair or even generous?
I really want to go to your law school, and I'm pleased with the offer of admission and scholarship that you have given me, but I want more money. You know as well as I do that I don't actually need it, but see, there's this great new 2011 Toyota Prius I saw sitting on the lot having escaped recall a couple days ago, and I really want to set myself up for a lengthy suit that will both put what I learn at UF to good use and make me mint.
You're going to be paying something like $20,000 total for the best law degree a Florida school can offer. Be happy, and allow some other poor souls who might otherwise be paying sticker to share in your scholarship joy without having to worry about you digging into their small piece of the pie.
