Would you be willing to transfer? If you would be, then you might be able to get some money. If they know you are going to stay anyway, why would they offer you scholarship money? Expecting a full ride might be out of the question (because it might have the same financial impact to the school as transferring), but you might get something. As long as you don't alienate the staff, you probably would be no worse off by asking.

I'd be interested in how this goes for you. I have no idea who you should ask: admissions or dean's office. That's a good question.

I'm also interested, since I'm in a same situation. I got very little scholarship money, but pulled a 3.67. I was considering transferring, but many schools do not offer money to transfer students. I'm curious as to whether you can ask your current school for more money.

I'm not sure if this is applicable at law school, but I know in undergrad there was a one semester grace period. If you go below the required GPA requirement, you were on probation for a semester and if you got better grades the second semester you could retain your scholarship. If this is the case, it would mean there is no freed scholarship money for you.

This is just speculation but I think you probably won't be successful after only one semester. It's probably better to try at the end of the year since people who were offered scholarships upon entering usually get year-long, not semester-long scholarships. Also as others have said the only reason to give you a scholarship is to keep you at the school. Since they know you'll be staying around for the spring semester, it seems to me there's no point asking until you get all your grades at the end of the year.
