So I've been killing time at work by tracking LSN a lot the past couple weeks to see how people are responding to schollies. http://cornell.lawschoolnumbers.com/app ... =3&type=jd
I shared the spreadsheet Ive been usinghttps://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... MQ3c#gid=0
Its always interesting to me to see what kind of yield the schools are getting after they invest in a scholarship offer.
I don't know what the yield for other T14 full tuition schollies is like, but 7 Dean's Scholarship recipients are reported on LSN. 10 are awarded each year, so that's a pretty good reporting rate (and I think lends credence to the idea that people with higher stats and more cycle success are more likely to report on LSN). Out of the 7, 6 have already withdrawn. The last one is deciding between the Dean's and ~$50-60k at CCN.
I'm also struck by the number of people that withdrew and took other offers from other schools without bothering to try to negotiate and get an increase.
So according to this around $2.6 million was left on the table (keeping in mind the huge caveat about self-reporting, under-reporting, etc, and that I left out anything under 60k)
Moral of the story, which I guess we already knew, a lot of money has been freed up and you should remain vigilant if you are looking for more...
