Not very good compared to your other offers?




22K p/y. Straight awful for the other offers I have.


Any stipulations?

From what I can tell, it is guaranteed.

Yeah, mine said nothing about stipulations in the email. Did other offers mention GPA requirements before they received it snail mail? I suppose no stipulations would make me feel a bit warmer.

I find it very..... disheartening... that a school that has had so many issues and on the verge of becoming a TTT, made me e-mail them for my scholarship. Suffice to say, it is pretty pathetic.

Is it really possible/practical to walk from the Radnor/Rosemont apartments?

Possible yes; practical? You decide. (the walk is a little long IMO - but I'm lazy).

The train goes from Rosemont station to Villanova station. Not sure of the cost but they might not even charge you because its only one stop. And like I said before the walk to the train station from Rosemont Plaza is literally 3 mins and from Radnor about 5.

It's more of a hybrid between a subway and a train. LoL. Most efficient way to go about you way if you don't have a car.

Oh and Genuardi's which is a grocery store DELIVERS groceries (thought this would be relevant for those who don't plan on bringing/owning a car).

Hey man, you seem to be overreacting a bit. If getting scholarship money from law schools stresses you out, maybe you should reconsider going to law school.

or take that distressed energy and channel it into a concise, compelling award reconsideration email. i hate to sound patronizing but one can't expect nova to hand over money easily even if one's numbers are above their medians (not saying that yours are or aren't since i dont know your numbers). in other words, be a tenacious son of a bitch.

I would think they need more than 2 days to finish your aid determination.

It's cool bro, you're probably gonna be a TTT quality law student anyway. It all matches up.
