I suppose that does not bode well for me. With tuition jumping to 41K, 10K will just not cut it for me personally.

Yea. GPA stipulation. 3.25---and I think they curve to 3.15? So I don't know what I feel about that.

I REALLY like washington & lee, but still need to visit. I'm considering it over Cornell. But I still haven't heard back from Georgetown, UCLA, Berkeley, or Michigan, nor Cornell's scholarship committee. So hard to say my friend, hard to say.

Saving $120 grand doesn't sound too shabby though.

just checked the mail in Chicago. Full ride 40,820. Stips 3.25.

Also I noticed it says full tution (not just 40,000 a year) so each year it'll be adjusted to account for tution increases. :lol:

Only $5K/year with an LSAT just under 170. Schools ranked 5-10 spots higher have offered me close to full-tuition. Weird.

Hahaha ... well let's just say that other people with my LSAT have got more than $25K. I'm an international applicant so I'm avoiding being more specific on the boards.

Does anyone know if they negotiate scholly stips?

I'm thrilled with the full tuition scholarship, but it seems like almost everyone else got a 3.15 stip instead of 3.25.

+1 to this. I also got the 10K/year, but I think i will be withdrawing tomorrow. Hopefully i'll free up a spot and some $ for those of you still waiting!

to be honest....I wasn't before this offer. The school's I am considering are vandy and W&M...but I am debating if a full scholly is worth it?

I'm with you. I didn't know if W&L was an option for me. If some of my reaches come through I still may not go but I'm definitely going to the asw. Cant beat full ride.
