How does one learn about any scholarship offer? Is it supposed to be in the admittance packet??

Look on your Admitted Students site under the "mail and money" tab

I did and it says nothing. Does that mean I am not getting anything?

Edit: I just got my admissions packet in the mail today. It was mailed 2/3.

Wait a week or two, then check again.

Haha should I be worried? I know everything is tiered there. I have a XXX, FWIW.

Hi everyone, longtime lurker, first-time poster here. I received my admissions packet on December 17. My stats are 169/3.67, so Michigan was a reach for me. However, it looks like people with similar stats have been offered $30,000 in scholarships. I have constantly been checking my Mail & Money page, but nothing has appeared related to financial aid. Did I miss the boat for scholarships? Money from Michigan would probably end my cycle.

I haven't done FAFSA yet either, does that effect what they put under the money tab?

They give you either need or merit, so it could.

The scholarship letter is usually generated a week later. You should be in line for $45000.

All you need is bout 169/3.8+ I think. If you get a 171 you get $67500.

No I'm pretty sure you need a 172/173+ for the $67,500. A lot of the $45,000's are 170+ with high GPA or 171+ with a 3.5+.

I implied 171(/3.8+) for the 67500. All I know is if I got 1 point extra on the LSAT I would have gotten the 67500. Check out the 171/3.9's.

Retake? :mrgreen:

I need to dig through the past years' threads. If we can get extra $ by taking June LSAT, maybe we should. Nothing to lose and all to gain.

seems like michigan has given $ to people with my numbers before. Maybe me being Cuban coupled with luck will land me with a similar deal.

anyone know scholarship situations for splitters with 25th percentile GPAs and above 75th percentile LSATs (like me)? for me as well, money from michigan would have a good chance at ending my cycle.

3.49/173 w/54 k. Another poster here got a Darrow with a 3.5/177. So definitely a good shot.

I don't think it word hurt to send your new grades if they boost your LSDAS GPA. Maybe there's a way to subtly suggest that they should consider them when thinking about scholarship awards, but I can't suggest how you should go about that.

Also, I got $54k with 174/sub-3.6 GPA. Kinda pissed off I didn't get the $67.5k, but I know my GPA is ugly.

I think I was the one r6 was referring too with the above comment--$67.5K with a 171/3.9.
