I'm betting I don't. If you win, you'll owe a dollar less than sticker at Stetson!

:P

--edit-- Not more than 5 people can bet against me since I'll be paying sticker if accepted!


I'm not sure I can actually spare a dollar (yay, sticker! :D) but I'm going to go against you just because I'm hoping you finally hear something!

GL!!!


Glad I'm not the only one paying sticker!

It would help to know your numbers & the award amount & whether or not it contained stipulations to maintain the scholarship. Thanks !

Did you receive the information via email, mail, or Fed-Ex?

Please share when you were accepted, too.

lawschoolnumbers.com shows applicants with LSAT scores as low as 152 & 157 receiving scholarship awards from Stetson. Stetson needs more applicants & more matriculants as shown by their application extension to July 1st.

Almost end of the work day on the second Friday of "you should hear something by Friday". WL at UF via the mail today. No Stetson decision in sight. Hetherlys, I know you feel my pain. This is getting ridiculous. Congrats to all those who got accepted, esp those with $$!!

With a LSAT score of 167, the expectation is that you will be attending a highly ranked law school = my best guess. Plus, you qualify for a very large scholarship award from Indiana.

I'm thinking a pitcher of sangria will make me feel better...too bad you're not closer!

But, what if my baby mama lived in St Pete ? And what if I wasnt on TLS and wasnt aware you could negotiate scholarships ? And what if I thought Stetson's international opportunities were for me ? I could have been seriously considering Stetson and their no offer would have sent me elsewhere.

lol.

Just got the IN call from FSU. Unless Stetson gave me a full or near full I would go with FSU for my Florida option. I guess I have nothing to lose so I might as well tell them that. Then they could say thanks but good luck at wherever you go and I could free up a spot on their board.

I'm in the same boat at this point. Would like to go to Stetson, but just can't justify the sticker now.

I did not submit any evaluations and didn't complete my application until like the middle of March.

The calendar showed they were open, but maybe they didn't do a typical workload with it being Good Friday?

Good vibes to you for next week!!!

Sorry, I am new to the website (that was actually my very first post) and was unaware of the customary stipulations that go along with announcing a scholarship award....I was just so excited I felt I had to tell the world! I applied in December and received an LSAT score below their 75%ile. I received by FedEx along with a phone call, it is for 10K. I have not read the stips but I think I just have to remain in good academic standing.

Thanks for the congrats everyone, this truly gives me an addt'l boost of confidence to begin my legal education! :D
Good luck to you all!
