That seems crazy. I'd definitely try to negotiate, they have to give you something

168 3.8 got me a scholly, but I also had some need. If you have no demonstrated need, don't expect cash money.

Even. If I don't have need... I still feel like being at both 75ths should get me SOMETHING

I mean, on the one hand, yah. Did you negotiate with them at all? Inform them of your full ride at WUSTL etc? If they're obviously your best choice (which they are going to be) and you didn't bother to show them you at least have cheaper options, why should they offer you money?

I did inform them my wustl full ride / other awards. Disappointed, I really really want to choose Cornell.

You still got nothing? Damn. E-mailed them with a WUSTL offer yesterday, but now I seriously doubt I'll get anything.

75k

At median GPA, above 75% LSAT

After working out the cost of attending, the difference over three years between Michigan and Cornell (each with some $) is $7,050.

Would I pay 7 grand NOT to live in Ithaca? You betcha!

That was a really superb story. If you have time, you should definitely tell it again

I mean, on the one hand, that's a good choice.

On the other hand, lol@Ann Arbor being better.

Erg. Above both 75ths & I got 36k. Same stats as someone else who got 75k ITT. I guess that is merit + need since I wouldn't qualify for any need based? Or Cornell values me substantially less.

169 is the loneliest number.

Haha luxxe. I feel like you and I could write a book entitle "the sad plight of a 169". There is a cavernous, massive separation between a 169 and a 170.

Seems like you had to be above BOTH 75ths to get anything

If your profile stats are accurate, your LSAT is at the 50th percentile, not 75th. You might be able to still get money but will prolly have to leverage other scholarships from comparable schools (ie T14, Texas, UCLA).

I was wondering about this too...Looks like Collegetown is really over-priced for what you get. And living with roommates (to keep costs down) seems pretty risky for 1L. Any thoughts from people that are knowledgeable about Ithaca housing?
