First seat deposit for me (my acceptance letter is dated 2/25) is 4/15 and that's a $250 deposit. The second is due 6/15 and that is $350. I would assume if you get accepted close to that date your deadline might be extended a bit. I'd wait to hear and then deal with it, but at least you have a ballpark.

YES!! I'm local and was offered a 90% scholarship, this offer and being able to stay where I live wiped out any other choices in my head.

Damn, I submitted my application in early January and have been "in review" since 2/14. It would be really nice to hear something soon . . . .

sent in last minute app. Will definitely consider Chapman if I get a decent scholly. Not sure how much I will get this late in the cycle.

Based on your very late application and the fact that your GPA and LSAT score is well below the median, I wouldn't bank on receiving a scholarship. My guess is that you will be placed on the waiting list simply because the school has likely already reached its admittance threshold (i.e., it has already admitted x number of students from x number of applications and doesn't want an over-matriculation or an increase in its admittance rate). However, this is pure conjecture. Cross your fingers, and best of luck!

No go on the scholly, but they were very, very nice about it. Told me straight up why I did not qualify and I believe they were very fair about it. Oh well.

If you are comfortable, can you share with us why you did not qualify? Just curious.

Basically told me that I would qualify based on LSAT, but not on GPA. Have to meet both thresholds in order to be able to get one.

Got 2500 in need based aid today in the mail. That should cover books and maybe a big mac extra value meal. Small, not large.

Officially declined my Chapman offer...I had a full scholarship, so hopefully one of you will get those funds if they redistribute! :)

Haha congrats! At least it's a little bit of extra cash. Didn't know they gave out need based aid!

Yep, I didn't know either. Apparently 2500/yr is the max. It is better than nothing though I guess. Most law schools don't even award need based aid.
