Mine was In Review one day after I sent my application in.

$3,000 for first year. Nothing mentioned about renewable.

instate. I got 15,000 from Pacific and I might try to use this to get more from unlv, hopefully either 5,000 for yr 1, or 3,000 a year for all 3 years.

If not sure if I understand this. You pay nothing for the 1st year right? An then if it doesn't renew, you have to pay but still get in-state tuition?

First year is full tuition (still have to pay cost of living).

After that, they will give me a scholarship worth full in-state tuition. But that doesn't mean I would automatically be classified as in-state. I would have to try and take care of that my self. Either way, it will be a scholarship worth whatever the in-state tuition costs.

That is a monster scholarship! If I was offered that deal, I would probably choose UNLV.

Yeah dude, I am psyched.

I like UNLV but honestly, as an out of stater and it being a state school, I did not expect such a large scholarship. I understand it is a numbers game but anytime a school gives you more than you expect, it makes you feel like they might really want you so that moves the school up the list. :)

Well, since we are number twins, I am super anxious to see my packet! Maybe we will be classmates.

Packet came today and I got the same offer! It would be extremely difficult to turn this down. Unless something crazy happens during the rest of my cycle, I think I will be moving to Vegas!

Congrats :D

I might be there too, but who knows... my top 4 are Tulane 20k/yr, St johns full tuition, pitt 14k/yr or UNLV....... Each has positives and negatives!!!! I like being near casinos, but new orleans has that too ;D.

Which out of state are you coming from, and have you been to Vegas? I haven't, so I gotta visit soon. I also looked at apartments but people say the area around UNLV is dangerous, but I dunno. The nicer ones, according to people, are like 15-30 minutes away, which is a bit too far for my tastes.

Lots to think about.

I live in California and my sister-in-law and her husband live in Vegas. I have been there probably like 10 times, but the only part of UNLV I have seen was Sam Boyd Stadium for a motorcycle race. I hear the law campus is nice though. Are you going to try and negotiate your gpa requirement? I think I might take a stab at it. I'm going next week and having dinner with a graduate of the 09 class, (sister-in-law's close friend) so I'll take some pics and check out the housing.

congrats...wow, this makes me want to put in a last minute application. my gpa is less than yours, 3.3, but do you think i still have a chance a some $ with 3.3, 163 (out of state), even though it is late in the process??

I wasn't planning on the negotiating thing, but I dunno. The top 1/3rd is kinda iffy, but I am not sure if schools are even willing to negotiate this. If you get that, let me know so I can get it too ;D

Mango, about your question, I think you should look at lawschoolnumbers.com. Go to last years cycle and check out how people did that applied during a similar time in the cycle. The results should be pretty consistent to this year. That should give you a much better idea than I would be able to. Good luck!

I have a silly thought about UNLV

If you got a prostitute in Nevada would this be bad for being admitted to the bar even tho it is legal? :D

Call and ask for some money. They gave you a damn full tuition scholarship, I'm sure they would at least cover your flight. :wink:

Only prostitute I would nail is at the Bunny Ranch where it is legal. But considering how much they cost, I'll wait until after I graduate and take the bar before going to that place.
