Good job congrats!

I wonder how many people they are going to lure with that 90k. It's hard to just think about turning it down.


yeah this was a game changer offer! I have to think about it.....

I made a spreadsheet last night. The difference in present value between Berkeley sticker and this offer is 120000+

Game changer is right!

90k is awesome! But don't fret about being in a tough spot. You can really do no wrong at this point.

I've gotten no word about money from UVa and recently found out about 105k to GW, and my first reaction was "Crap, that's a ton of money to turn down." But even if you don't want the money you can always use it as a bargaining chip for $ elsewhere. I'd personally take 90k to UVa and never look back, but that's me :wink: What are your other options though?

How does Berkeley give money? -- Is it need based? Merit? Both?

it's mostly personality based so you should send in your app. quick. based on your previous claims, you'll get full tuition + $20 or $30 K/year stipend

I know but I love Berkeley as well :(. This choosing a law school thing is hard. I guess I can feel for adcomms that have to choose between 5-6000 closely qualified students!

Is anyone going to the last ASW (UVA)?

I don't know if you are trolling or what, but the biggest scholarship I've seen is + $10k stipend.

didn't you get into NYU? why you worried about UVA. I think NYU just decided not to even look at my application anymore! Have fun in Manhatten!
