I got my acceptance letter from Iowa a couple weeks ago and my scholarship letter this week! - I got a Merit Scholarship of $24,682 per year which is $74,046 in total.
I was also accepted to Minnesota a few weeks ago and received a full-tuiton scholarship. I was surprised to receive a better scholarship from Minnesota than from Iowa, especially since I am an Iowa resident. My LSAT score is 168, GPA 3.8.
Is there any chance I could negotiate with Iowa about my scholarship to see if they will match Minnesota's full-tuition scholarship?...I would really rather stay in Iowa but would like to have as little debt as possible.
I've also been given a full-tuition scholarship at Drake which I am also considering...
Lol, I had the same problem with the scholarship. I was expecting it to say "Full Tuition" if they were to give me one, so when it said $74,046, I thought it was partial. Especially with the loan being thrown in, I was really confused. Thankfully TLS helped clear it up for me too. I think the fact that other people have gotten scholarships worth $130,000 made it more confusing for me initially.
Do you think this means you are responsible for any tuition increases?
