That's something! Is it need or merit? Did it come out of the blue or did you negotiate?

Congrats!

I got the same $5000 - out of the blue. Barely makes a dent in tuition but I didn't expect anything at all so I'm pleased!

No leveraging- they just emailed it out of the blue.
I hadn't bothered leveraging as it seems like they don't have a lot of $$ to give and I had all but forgotten about Fordham.
This makes me like them a whole lot more (even though shoteka right that it barely makes a dent-it's still nice!)!

Mine came by email as well. Really, totally random. I had sent in my fafsa but other than that I hadn't communicated with them since my acceptance.

My numbers are low for Fordham (3.4, 164) but I'm URM (kinda? I'm half mexican) and I have a masters and several years of somewhat impressive work experience throughout undergrad and masters (although not directly law related).

Can we expect any need based aid for law schools? Like grants?

Also do we get any state grants for law school?

Haha yeah I think you may have jumped the gun a bit. I was complete for about a month and a half before being accepted. And I'm pretty sure that is not proper etiquette. Maybe they'll appreciate your ballsiness though. :shock:

I've been complete since 1/14 as well and I know of a few others with that date too, IIRC their website says 4-6 weeks though right? Hopefully it's too early to start panicking.

I also sent an LOCI even though I only applied 1/7, but I didn't send info from other schools. Do you think the LOCI will hurt me?
