Ok, now I'm a little nervous...got the Decision Rendered on 1/11 as I mentioned and this morning received my WaveNet link, but under Application Status it says "Complete" and not "Admitted" as some of you have said...is this a bad sign?? I guess I'll have to wait a couple days for the mailing, but hoping for good news and even a scholly if possible since I got one from Wake.

I'm pretty sure many people had "complete" first and then it went to "admitted" before or around when the letter arrived. What are your numbers?

I would be shocked if that didn't get you in. No reason to worry.

It is a huge scholarship that covers tuition for all three years, plus an annual stipend of $5k.

Pepperdine will combine this award with others that you may receive, so it is actually possible to pay for school and housing and have a little left over.

It is a tough offer to reject.

Considering he had a 170/4.0, I'm going to guess and say...yes.

Yes, I received that scholarship. If anyone is interested in the process and timeline, send me a PM for details.

Just got in! Very excited, but only a $20K to start...that leaves about $40K per year which is a bit out of my reach for now. Thinking of applying for the Diversity Scholarship, does anyone know how much that is for, or when they give out those awards?

From what I understand, the diversity scholarships come in different amounts.

I don't know when you'll hear about the award though.

The only way I can afford to consider Pepperdine is if i get the Faculty Scholar Award. Any idea on what kind of scores get it?

Got an email today about it - the deadline is 11:59 pm on Monday January 18th. On the application it says: "It is recommended that applicants have a minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.65 and an LSAT score in the 93rd percentile."

Here's the link for those of you who might be interested: http://law.pepperdine.edu/admissions/content/app2010facsch.pdf

Does anyone have info or a link that shows what numbers (lsat/gpa) are offered the faculty scholarship?

I really hope I get it but my numbers are just under there recommendations. Think I have a chance?

Good luck to everyone else who applied
