This is pretty much what I was thinking as well. Looking at last years thread, scholarship info was sent with the acceptance letter.

I actually got to see them win. Thanks for sucking PU! I did have the unfortunate experience of seeing them lose to the 'Cuse a few years ago.

Numbers? And did you write the "Why ND" essay?

Edit: Were you ED or RD?

I think all of your questions are answered in a previous thread by andythefir:

I don't think this will answer it. This is the first year that ND's ED application is binding. In previous years, it was non-binding with a response required by February or thereabouts. This will certainly impact how ND hands out money.

Edit: Didn't read everything. My bad. It answers some of it. I'm just curious as to how the new ED app will impact things.

Yeah---this does seem to give a hint of a new scholarship structure/amount---maybe bigger scholarships for some and smaller for others instead of the standard 18/22 from the past--looking at the other blog it seems this person may have lost out on a lot of schollly money by applying as a binding ED candidate...but congrats on the admit

I realize more and more that Notre Dame is a school that I would REALLY enjoy going to (considering my Catholic/Italian background). Am I late to apply and have a good shot? my numbers are 3.7/166. I have a strong PS/DS and am working on my Why Notre Dame essay. What do you guys think?

3.7 is above gpa median, and 166 is only 1 point below the lsat median. should have a decent shot.

thanks...working away at the why notre dame essay ...im focusing on the catholic stuff (i went to catholic schools my whole life except for college, etc) is this the typical approach? for those that wrote the why essay what were the main ideas?

thanks again!

I'm sure plenty of people incorporate Catholicism into their "Why Notre Dame?" essay. I find it highly unoriginal. There are "X" number of Catholic legal institutions, why don't you apply there instead? Answer that and you could still salvage a respectable essay.

Do you keep confusing ND with another school? The median GPA is 3.57. The poster with 166/3.7 is only one point below the median LSAT, comfortably above median GPA and only slightly below the 75th percentile GPA (3.73).
I agree, though, can't hurt. ;)

Notification came in a flat rate envelope with a few fliers and the rear-window sticker. My numbers are 3.94/162 native, did ED, wrote a why ND on being Catholic in an antagonistic state school, personal statement on my commitment to public service. Both letters of recommendation specifically mentioned ND, only school I applied to. Submitted on 10-4, complete at the end of the month. Couldn't be happier.
