Hey now, that wasn't directed at you, just at those who would accuse me of "playing the race/ethnicity card." You're just as much Cuban as I am...nothing personal acere.

If you give me your $105k scholarships I promise not to consider any of you to be posers.

Anyway, I've been told more than once that I can't be Hispanic because I'm white (ignorant-Hispanic is not a race), and asked if I even speak Spanish.

Sorry if this has been asked here before, but what class percentile is 3.0? All I know is that it is a B from this: "B, less than 3.167 and greater than or equal to 2.833".


Thats wonderful, congrats! I havent recieved my packet yet but I am hoping for something similar


So I got my packet with no mention of Merit scholarship :(
GW just dropped significantly on my list.

Seriously! My mom read me the note and I was thinking "clearly you didnt think I was amazing enough to give me some money..." It makes sense now why ppl are withdrawing left and right on LSN

I don't think it's anything personal...people who don't get $$ usually don't have the numbers for it...There has only been a few people here who legitimately got gypped out of $$.

Should I be concerned if I haven't received my acceptance materials yet? I was told they were mailed out on the 18th.

if it makes you feel better, I didn't get any $ with a 169, 3.75. My boyfriend, with a 167 3.83 got 30k and the first year housing. I don't know what the magic formula, but while I fit it for other schools, I don't for gwu.

Don't sweat it

this kind of makes sense considering their medians. you're above in LSAT and below in GPA. He's on the LSAT median and above in GPA. might have been the difference maker for $.

Did you expect money from GW with a 163? Your use of 4 question marks makes me think you're surprised.

I sensed a bit of irony here...yep, i am definitely expecting money cuz it's one of my safe school. I know i have a miserable LSAT score. But i dont see a better chance for someone with a 2.5 gpa from a 60ish school?

Expecting money when you are pitfalls below a school's 25th LSAT is dumb.

....he wasn't saying "don't expect to get one but I deserve one" ...he was saying your LSAT score means you shouldn't get money from GW lol. No need to be a dick.

Thank you. This is correct. I doubt I even get off the waitlist. I think nakiko is just a little upset that GW doesn't see them as a special little snowflake. And saying a school is one of your safeties when you're sitting below their 25th LSAT is laughable at best.

Edit: my bad, I didn't notice said user was a URM. What an entitled douche.

Only way I would do sticker is with guaranteed max aid of $16k/yr. Even then, that's a lot of debt to swallow for the second best school in a market.
