I'm a little confused by conflicting information I've received regarding grants and scholarships, etc. I spoke to someone in admissions recently, and explained that all things being equal I'd rather study and practice law in the West, as opposed to the East or Midwest. I've been offered very nearly a full tuition ride from IU Maurer, as well as better than 50% tuition from several other schools farther to the east, but higher-ranked than CU. So here's the rub: the admissions person told me that CU's policy is to not offer "full rides" to anyone, but the stats at US News say that 13 percent of admitted students are offered grants of full tuition, and 8% are offered grants of more than full tuition. Somebody's got to be giving false information. Hands-down I'd rather live in the West, and I'm willing to turn down offers from more prestigious schools. But, given the horrid legal job market, I can't just ignore such significant financial incentives based on a geographic preference. In the meantime, I'm still waiting for word on any financial aid from CU, which it seems will proably be smaller than what I've already been offered from other schools. Still, I'm hoping . . .
This is the part that bothers me. It comes across like the adcomms are conspiring against him.
