Do law schools give out scholarships after the deposit deadline? I know money will probably be freed up after the 30th from declines, but why would they give it to someone else who already committed with a deposit?
From what I gather scholarship money at UVA has mostly dried up this cycle. If you are not prepared to go there without a scholarship, I would not recommend double depositing as that would essentially prevent you from going anywhere else and it is unlikely you will receive any money afterwards.
Also, you can still hustle for money after a deposit deadline. That's when a lot of money has freed up, and deposit does NOT equal commitment. But you will still need some leverage in a competing offer or there's no point
