It took exactly a week from being able to access the ASW to award notice last year. I'd give it till Thursday to be sure.

Oh wow! I thought that wouldn't be active so I didn't click on it recently. So exciting. I got 22,500. Per year? Awesome.
Edit: Does this mean I won't get a Darrow invite?

Has Michigan historically given money to splitters? I'm surprised to see a few of us getting $$. I figured my GPA took me out of the running.

My decision was made 11/02 and my scholarship letter was sent 11/24, so I wouldn't assume anything yet!

My guess is that it is. 22.5k * 3 = 67.5k, or the maximum scholarship amount they give to non-Darrows.

I am pretty sure it is per year. last year a lot of people with our numbers got 67,500 total.

It is definitely, definitely per year. I posted on the last page of this thread that I verified the amount on ASW with the letter I got in snail mail and the amount listed on ASW is 100% definitely per year.

Which is awesome! Congrats everyone

Michigan refuses to negotiate schollys right?

Don't know about historically, I guess LSN is the best way to check that.
But they are this year. On my ASW, they sent me a Dean's Scholarship Award Letter (have yet to receive, but the amount is $15k on ASW, so $45k total).

3.52 LSAC reported GPA
171 LSAT

I would guess that the scholarship was awarded because I had leadership experience in undergrad. I would say I spent 20-30 hours any given week being president/coordinator/chair/coach etc. on my extracurriculars. I also continued after graduating with one of the roles (still in that role this year).

Their site states that the Dean's schollys are based on "academic achievement" and "demonstrated leadership," so don't lose hope if you're a splitter!

From the 2014 thread, not exactly. Someone quoted the Dean's blog, which advised (and repeated said advice) that students are welcome to show them their other offers from schools. It does not say they would match it.

Here's the link: http://www.law.umich.edu/connection/a2z/default.aspx on 3/24/10

FYI about keeping your scholarship from her blog:
If Michigan Law gives you a merit scholarship, you keep it so long as you have a full courseload and maintain a 2.0 GPA. If you don’t maintain that GPA, you have a larger problem than keeping your scholarship: you are on academic probation. (from 5/5/11).

Yeah, it took me like 10 tries to log on to ASW without it timing out.
I also got $18k/year - #s in profile if anyone is interested.

Wow, remarkably similar to me (3.53/171), I'll just be happy if I get accepted though :lol:

I'm sorry if this has been answered before, but I looked through this thread and am still confused. I was accepted as a UM Summer Starter and received the following offer:

Financial Aid Awards Award Year Award Status Offer Amount Accept Amount Decline Amount
2013 LAW SCHOOL DEAN'S SCHOLARSHIP Active 10000.00 10000.00 0.00


Is the total award 10k or 30k (10k/yr) or something else entirely? Thank you all and congrats!

Just got my snail-mailed 18k/yr offer! Mich was already inching above V/P in my mind... now it's miles ahead.

$10,000 per year. Like a couple other people in this thread, I called them and they confirmed that the amount on ASW was yearly, not total.
