Got the same, don't think it means no scholarship.


The scholarship letter was included in my admit packet (I just received it on Friday)....are others getting their scholarship letters outside of their admit packets?



Noooooooooooooooo


If you look through the past few pages, some people have not received scholarship info for 2-3 weeks after their admit package. I got in 1/25, received my admit package a few days later, and still no scholarship info.

Just looked at LSN... actually surprised that they have dinged so many people. I guess that means those of us who have heard absolutely nothing weren't auto-ding... at the leaaaaassssttt.... /grasping for straws.

As I was browsing lsn I only saw two ppl that got in with below a 165 LSAT (1st pg only- sorted by most recently updated). Trend?

lol derr. I think they've only admitted auto-admits and rejected auto-dings. They need to get their median, and then they can fill the next 49% of the class with lower LSATs...
I'm sure I'll be dinged anyway, but thats what I'm thinking is going on.

I think you're right about that. It took me five days from going complete, and it took my roommate about a week, too. He's 170/3.3ish. We are both over the 75th percentile for LSAT score. Then again, another friend of mine already heard back (admitted) and she had a 163/3.6. We're all in state and went to UGA undergrad, so that might have something to do with it, too.

Probably. I'm OOS and have #s that are similar to people who have already been dinged, but I still have my fingers crossed. They haven't dinged me YET so theres something there I guess worth reading.

Got my packet today which was pretty much a letter and a decal for my car. No scholarship info. Does anybody know if so far people have gotten scholarship info in their original packet or in a later letter?

It appears as if some people are getting scholarship info with the initial admit letter, and some are getting it in a separate letter up to 3 weeks later. Haven't really found any rhyme or reason as to why.

So if you didn't get a scholarship with the acceptance letter you're not entirely doomed? Also, I was wondering if anyone had any insight on how easy it actually is to establish in-state classification for the 2nd and 3rd years. I know it says it is fairly easy to establish in-state residency but does anyone know if it actually is?

File taxes as a Georgia resident, have a driver's license, set up a bill of some kind (cable, water, etc.), register to vote. I don't think you need to register your car, but you might.

Has anyone stalked last years cycle to see when they actually start letting people knowwww who don't have clear cut #s?

edit: Nevermind. Pretty much bad news for anyone who applied early and hasn't already heard. A batch of rejections came out last year around 2/25 and then a HUGE batch of endless waitlists came out early March. Lame.

I saw the same thing. This is scary. Let's hope this year is (or we are, at least) the exception, not the norm...

You don't have to register a car in GA. However, don't have a car registered in your name in another state. If your parents currently have your car in their name in another state, you can keep it that way.
You will also need a georgia bank account.

Got my letter and sticker today with no mention of $$. Really hoping they send something out later although the language of the letter kind of made it seem that I wouldn't be getting any help.

Pleasseeeee UGA!
