I want to hang on to my admission for now to negotiate scholarships from other schools. Does anyone know if the lower T14 would care about USC enough to negotiate? If not, I should probably withdraw soon so I don't take up space for someone else who would really love to go to USC.
T-14 schools do not consider USC a peer school, so they won't care. The only schools that might raise your scholarship are perhaps USC peer schools like UCLA,Texas and Vandy. Whatever your initial offer will likely stay. Having said that, I'm suprised lower T-14s didn't give you 100K++ with a 175 LSAT.
I haven't heard back from very many schools since I submitted late so USC is one of my first and few acceptances. I have no idea what the field is going to look like this year so I didn't want to assume that I would get in/get money from other schools. It seems like this cycle has been very unpredictable so better safe than sorry.
On the other hand, I literally just found out I got $$ from a T6 so I think i'm bowing out. Hopefully, they can give my spot to some else now
Good luck to all of you!!
