I feel you on the poor standardized test-taking. I've had to fight that my entire life. You should email them about more of an offer once you've figured it all out. Best of luck



I still need to do the FAFSA, but this sucks.. I should be getting something with that GPA. My LSAT is slightly off for the bigger scholarships, but still.. I guess I just need to wait to know for sure.


Not to get anyone's hopes up but I had been told verbally by two different people in their office of admissions that I would NEVER be considered for ANY scholarship because my LSAT was too low. Surprisingly, they've offered me a full-tuition Trustee's scholarship.


By phone? I am not expecting a full one, but something at least. I got a bad feeling about this since I heard nothing on the phone. If my status checker does not update, I will just wait for the mail. :(

I did receive a phone call (voicemail) and they did say congratulations and that they were offering a full tuition scholarship. My status checker also reflected this but not until the day after.

I guess I have to be patient. I was hoping my GPA would count for something since my school is known to be tough. Maybe anyone under 157 is not eligible for anything?

Well, that's my point. I only have a 155.

Hah and a 154 doesn't mean shit? What is your GPA? URM? Some super soft or something? Congrats! I am happy they overlooked your LSAT. I got into Penn State which is awesome. I doubt I will get much if anything there. I got shutout at a local T3 with only 5k a year but another one with half tuition. It seems rather random. I still have schools to hear from as well as scholarships. I hope something good happens.

Congrats on Penn State. I got into Notre Dame. I'm nothing special. I'm chalking all this up to an admissions mistake. I applied super early and had everything ready to go in August. I'm a non-trad with 6 years paralegal experience. That's about it.

No mention of scholarship on the status checker. WTF. If I don't get a decent scholarship offer in my packet, I will not be attending. This was high on my list, but it might now be on the bottom.

Might as well get a tag in this topic too. I applied back around 12/20, but almost nothing has happened with my application since then, it has just been sitting at "complete."

Nevermind that last post.

I received a call today: accepted with a 75% scholarship

Honestly, kind of disappointed. I expected full tuition.

I received my acceptance today with a full tuition scholarship via phone call. Also, I am attending Michigan State currently for undergrad, so if anyone has any questions about the campus or area, feel free to ask!

For those of you who received a phone call today, when did you go complete on status checker? I've been stuck at complete since 1/11

Ah what the hell. How did I get no word of a scholly over the phone when the guy called me last week. For everyone that got the phone call recently: does your status checker say you got a scholarship?

your status checker will tell you - admitted with scholarship.

I got a 75% scholly, and no phone call. teh only phone call I got from an admissions officer was from a school that accepted me a day after i sent my withdrawl notice. Awkward for her, but I told her that my situtation changed, and the school was no longer a good fit for me. she said she understood. doesnt really matter to me though

I guess I really got nothing then. This totally sucks. I am waiting for my admission packet still, but the status checker just says admitted. How do I get into Penn State, but get no money from MSU? I'm not going to expect money at this point. If the packet has any, I will at least be somewhat surprised.

Edit: If I am annoying anyone, please ignore my whining. I am just having a rough go with money at schools so far even at a local T4 I would consider going to with money.

Stupid question but if the checker says admitted with full scholarship does that mean full tuition scholarship?

I thought it did but I didn't receive an email, phone call, or why msu essay so maybe it is something else

Still waiting on some options, but it might be a possibility.

LOL WTF. Still waiting for my packet to find out my case 100% for sure. I sweat this mail man just picks and chooses when he is going to deliver the mail. He never delivers anything on Mondays or Fridays.
