They fortunately sent the letter to my permanent address (dad's house) where I have been spending my winter break.

I'm afraid of the GPA contingency. If the scholarship was without strings, I would be very, very tempted. It's not my first choice right now, however.

Agreed, I'm hoping to get something. 3.8x/163, so definitely nothing near your 38,000. But without anything at all this one will be withdrawn pretty quickly.

Hey maybe a top 1/3 contingency would be a pretty damn good motivator, lord knows it would be a pain to maintain.

I heard back about the same 38K scholarship contingent on GPA in a letter that was mailed to my house, dated 12/16 (arrived a few days later if I recall). Awesome scholarship and a great motivator, but somewhat scary to attempt to maintain!

good luck to everyone else! Hope you guys hear info soon!

If you guys are in the SD area, I recommend visiting the campus. My app went complete 11/18, the same day I visited the school and talked with an admission counselor, and I was accepted the next day.

Complete since 11/15. Pretty sure that they wait to see what more of the applicant pool looks like (Jan applicants waiting on Dec. LSAT scores) before making decisions on borderline or splitter applicants. I may be wrong, but most people admitted through regular decision so far have been at least median GPA and 75%ile LSAT.

I could possibly answer this if you provide your numbers. If you check out lawschoolnumbers.com you can see that they haven't been doing a lot of rejecting. Mostly, they have been accepting the auto-admits and everyone else is waiting... unless you are auto-deny.

numbers: 161/3.0, URM, decent softs, a rejection doesn't seem likely but it wouldn't surprise me

Anyone applying around now? Or have any idea of my chances... will be finishing up next week, 3.7/164... do you think applying this late will negatively affect scholarship amounts?

I would say you're probably admitted with 161 and URM. GPA doesn't seem to weigh as heavily with them.
It does seem like an unusually quick response to me, but I really doubt it is a rejection.

You'll be admitted. Your numbers are around their 75% on both. You'll probably be offered scholarship, but the longer you wait, the less money they'll still have to give. However, if you get your application sent in soon, it probably will be about what it would have been earlier.

I got in with a 161 about 3 weeks ago and I'm not a URM. For reference, I went complete in Mid-November.

You'll definitely be admitted. I don't think I'm getting a scholly with a 161, but considering your URM status, you might, from what I gather from these forums...

She didn't say. I didn't press. I realize my info kind of sucks. Sorry.
