Initial offer. I don't have much leverage to be honest.
I'm OK merit wise
Also I'm a poor international

Not much leverage because your stats aren't amazing or because you don't have better offers from peer schools or both?

Just got my financial aid package via email. Live in the States.

Submitted paperwork April 7th (like 3 weeks after acceptance) and submit competing offer PDFs via email on the 18th.

I think they email all the decisions and also snail mail. They realize they don't have much time.

Got mine as well via email. Submitted mid-March and sent follow up document earlier this week.

Pretty good stuff; can't complain about the offer at all.

Just paid my deposit.

I also went to the bookstore yesterday and they had three different law school t-shirts available, fwiw, but none of them seem to be available online.

i read through last year's thread and it seems the answer is no, but they'll send everyone a welcome email after the May 1 deposit deadline.
