Reapplying to schools that you were previously accepted to?

Postby oak77 » Tue Jul 11, 2017 8:24 pm

If you got into a school with scholarship money but rejected them, will they take you again if you reapply?

I rejected a school that I want to attend now. I am planning to take the September LSAT and find a job for the upcoming year.

Will this particular school count it against me that I rejected them once already?

Will they accept me/and or give me $$ if I

1) don't get a higher score than what I applied with last cycle
2) do get a higher score

Entirely depends on the school and your numbers.

I assume Berkeley is the one you rejected (and are now considering reapplying to), because you're not likely to get Georgetown with a better scholarship.

If your score doesn't change, it's possible that you won't get the same scholarship offer, because those fluctuate, but unless you rejected the school by sending them dick pics, I think you're fine to reapply. Bear in mind that boosting your score a few points may still not get you more money at Berkeley (they're known for being a black box when it comes to scholarships), but it would certainly get you some other options that you could use to negotiate with Berkeley.

I envy you oak77. Why don't you just spare either one of your offers to me and I'll time travel to 2016. jk
