27,500 per year, as long as I'm in the upper 2/3 of the class. If not, they say I will retain half of it regardless. Plus consideration for some other scholly that gives full tuition plus $2,000 stipend.

SOOO tempting.

Yep, I'm pretty sure everyone who gets a scholarship is "considered" for it (at least thats how I read that paragraph of the email)

Oo, 24k/year! This helps offset my TRAGIC, uncalled-for rejection from GW earlier today.

Congrats to all other recipients!

STILL INCOMPLETE. I am seriously flipping out here, I don't know what is going on. I've already sent them an email asking if there was anything I forgot to send in and they said I was fine and would go complete last week! Anyone have any idea what's going on??

So my cable & internet were out when I got scholarship the email on my phone. In my fit of joy I almost let it fly out of my hand during my victory dance.

20k a year/no mention of terms for renewal. it just says "The scholarship is renewable each year you are enrolled in the regular J.D. program." Hoping that means just what it says and that I don't have any other terms to meet.

165/3.10 URM with MBA and 2+ Yrs work experience.

So who's heading to the scholars day next Friday? I went ahead and confirmed about an hour ago.

Congrats to all the other scholarship recipients and admits today!!!

Yes, they will reimburse you but not until you enroll.

If we didn't get scholarship today yet were in the 12/10 acceptance batch are we just not getting any? People with similar stats to me got scholarship, yet I didn't and am dying to go to Wake. To make matters more frustrating, I've gotten scholarship from a better ranked school, but again, none from wake! I am so incredibly frustrated because I really want to go there, but I can't afford sticker.

Full tuition, looks like no stipulations. Did everyone else take the Fletcher Scholarship statement to mean that there were only 2 of them available?

mez, what are your stats? I noticed some people's stats below the supposed 163 magic LSAT getting scholarship, too. I'm wondering if it's worth holding out (a very slim) hope I may hear something tomorrow since it sounds like they were swamped today.

Full tuition as well. URM female. Afro, that's the way I understood it.

+1

I emailed the admissions office last Thursday, just to make sure they were using my December LSAT score, and to reiterate my desire for a decision, and I was told I should receive a decision shortly...AR since 12/21
