Thanks!
158/3.3 with very strong PS and Softs.
HTH!


What the hell!? I had a 158/3.95 and they only offered me 25k a year!


and i only got 10k with a 158/3.2. Go figure.


Hofstra seems to have a weird method of giving scholly. I had 158/3.65 and they only offered me $7,000/year... :?: Whatever, I withdrew anyway.

I have 160 and 3.3 and received no scholarship. I have no idea how to ask if it was a mistake without sounding like I'm money-grubbing.

Check this out viewtopic.php?f=22&t=79373. Either way you have nothing to lose because they can't go back on your admission offer and they didn't offer you any money yet.

Hello, for those who recently received noticed on their app status what day did you go complete, my file has been in review since 1/21. Is this a bad sign?

Just to clarify my statement above where I said I haven;t heard a thing since 1/18 - that was meant for Brooklyn thread and I accidently posted it here. There seems to be a bit of confusion in my other thread about this. Of course people like to jump to crazy conclusiions about this stuff.:roll:

I have similar numbers and got in with some $$$. However, I applied really early in the cycle.

My status checker doesn't say anything about a scholarship letter :(. I'm kind of surprised because my LSAT is above their 75th (although my GPA is god awful). Did anybody receive a scholarship without seeing it in their status checker?
