The Email today with the subject "Financial Aid - Scholarship Awards" got me very excited thinking it was reward news... but unfortunately just a notification that awards will be made available "soon"... Come on Richmond, give me some money so I can attend!

I liked that email...it was ok if you know you don't want to come here let us give money to someone who does - makes sense

I liked the thought behind the email... completely agree that it makes sense... just slightly disappointed that I wasn't an awards email as I really want to go to Richmond.

I've been following the WM and the UR threads, so you're not sure what you want to do yet?



Im about 99.9 percent decided. I was jsut saying that The new dean is impressive and only helps the school. I see how it looks though.

My hopes were dashed too. I'm torn. I almost wanted to write an email back saying, "I REALLY WANT TO GO! Pleeeeease, send me money."

*sigh* I hope so.

Am I the only one who is totally freaking out about this?

I wouldn't say freaking out but waiting. The earlier I know scholarship, the earlier I can make a decision. Then I can actually start to get my life together for next year.

Are you the one who's reported it on LSN? (177/3.35)

Are you going to accept it?

Yeah, that's me. I don't know. I love the idea of having little or no debt after law school, I'm not at all interested in a big firm job. If UVA gives me no money, I probably won't go there. I have a couple weeks to decide.

Well, Congratulations again. It will be a difficult decision! Did you visit UR? It's absolutely lovely! I personally have never liked UVA for any of it's schools, lol, but I see from LSN it's your fav.

Interesting that calls are already going out for the JM- the deadline on my letter for it wasn't until March 16.... I already submitted the essay, but I just think that's interesting.

Pretty sure the JM essay deadline was a moving target, they gave people who applied later more time. I think they told me Feb 25th or so. Dean Rahm to me they were giving 12 invitations and that applications at UR were up 27% (not positive on those numbers).

Gooood Lord! If it's going to take a 177 to land a JMS, I might as well send in my deposit to Wake.

Congrats, by the way.

Missed a call this afternoon. Judging from this thread it must have been about the JM. I will report back soon.
