I haven't heard anything about scholarships yet. I'm OOS.

From what I've read, I don't think it is possible. I think you have to be in the state a year before going to school. It's too bad, Kansians are getting a hell of a deal.

I was deciding between KU and Pittsburgh but am from the DC area so I'd pay out of state both ways. When it came down to look at both financial packages and scholarship offers, it was hard to choose Pitt over KU when the other school would involve me taking out at 50k per year in comparison to KU where I would need about 20k. When I was looking at possibly having 150k of debt after 3 years of schooling, its very hard to justify. Although I imagined myself in a city atmosphere, the idea of being locked into an amount so substantial that would require me to work crazy hours at a big law firm to make the debt tolerable was not something I wanted. Whats good about KU is that its education at a great value and should maybe 10 years down the road, if I wanted to pursue a different career path, the weight of debt wouldn't be so substantial.

I'm on the scholly waitlist, mind asking them to send it my way? Did they tell you via e-mail/snail mail?
