Plan on canceling then.

I hear that they save some money for superstars that show up late in the game...but if you aren't in that category, probably not.

I had an admissions counselor speak to a group on campus on Monday about this very issue and the whole process.

His words were that they don't do scholarship money until after xmas break.

Part of it is that the pool of applicants is too small early in the process to determine who will get money. He said once they fill about half of the class and a majority of apps are in that they start sending out the dough. Part of this is those who sit on the admissions committee also sit on the scholarship committee.

You're not going to get a ton of money either way if you're in the middle of the pack. If you're near the 75th or higher you're likely to get some cash money homie.

Edit: Also in his words, (this is a tier admissions officer), the amount of scholarship money you get is almost entirely determined by your LSAT score. They can get lots of kids with high gpa's, it's hard to compete for kids with higher lsat scores. Every school cares about their US News ranking though.
