Schools that offer Scholarships to Transfer Students

Postby sparty99 » Tue Aug 23, 2011 4:28 pm

Some schools do not provide scholarship money to transfer students. Do you know of any schools in the top 25 that provide scholarship money to transfer students? If yes, can you provide your ranking or amount of money that you received.

I don't know of one Top 25 school that offers merit scholarships. Some might give need-based, but by the time you're admitted as a transfer all of that money is usually gone.

Transfers don't get money. I have never heard of any exceptions, but that doesn't mean it never happens.

This. It's rare enough that I don't know anyone who's gotten any.

Some schools give need based grants to transfers. I know UC Davis offered a friend of mine a 13k need based grant as a transfer. Which means, other UC schools (UCLA/Berkeley/Hastings) might do the same as well. Don't know of any schools that offer scholarships to transfers.

I got need based money as a transfer at UCLA as a 3L, but not a 2L. Nevertheless, it was a very welcome surprise.

GULC gave me 30k in need-based aid.

GULC has a policy that any need-based aid that is freed-up by people transfering out is made available to people transfering in.

I thought Harvard made need-based aid available to transfers on the same terms as everyone else, same for Yale, but Van would seem to indicate that I am wrong about that...

You're right about that. I got 30k need based aid from Harvard as a transfer.

I apologize. When I answered this earlier I was thinking about scholarships and merit aid. The OP asked about scholarships and what rank you need to earn them, and nothing of that sort exists.

However, it's true that HLS (and from what I understand, possibly also Y and S) makes need-based grants available to transfer students on the same terms as other students. I know this is true because I received some need-based aid myself. This isn't "scholarship money", though; you have no way of knowing whether you're eligible for it until after you've matriculated, and it's completely unrelated to academic performance or recruiting.

Hope that clarifies.

I contacted a number of schools asking about scholarships and some stated that they do offer scholarships to transfer students. So, it exists.

None of the top schools (that I know of) offer merit scholarships to transfers. Any law student can apply for various scholarships while attending an ABA school but those are not school merit scholarships. Unless you are looking at lower ranked schools, I doubt any will offer you a scholarship. None of the T14 schools I applied to offered them and I applied to over half of them.

@Sparty99: Which law schools told you that they offer merit scholarships to transfer students ?

I don't want to comment on my due diligence as I don't want to increase the applicant pool.

Ignore Sparty, he's pretty much insane. Check out his posts in the "Illinois suspends Dean of Admissions" thread for proof.

In other words, we should accept that schools award merit scholarship money to transfers, based not even on a claim that you have proof such scholarships are awarded, but solely on your word that you were told they exist?

I think this is the correct answer:

You ask us to share scholarship info, but decline to share any info that you already have?

Providing proof that scholarship awards exist is none of my concern. I asked a question for my own benefit and based on the answers, I now know of several schools that offer need based assistance. Additionally, through my own initiative, I now know that some Top 25 programs provide scholarship assistance to transfers. Whether you believe me or not is none of my concern.
