Hey guys, have any of you that have gotten in heard about scholarship packages or anything? I got my acceptance call about a week ago, so I'm just wondering when I should expect the official snail mail package.

There are some who heard back in December who haven't heard about scholarship yet. It seems that they are now waiting to see the fasfa/need access information for most... but mostly, it just seems random on our end, since we obviously don't know the rhyme or reason (and understandably so). I'd just say don't freak out if you don't hear immediately.

Still at 12/6...not that this is at all surprising.

Also, did some investigation and all of us in the twelve 6 mafia have like the same LSAT score, but my GPA is wayyyy lower than the rest of y'all. So I've taken the liberty of nominating myself "token dumb blonde" of the twelve 6 mafia.

Its like our LSAT is just good enough that they think we are going to go somewhere else, but not good enough that they would try to entice us with a great scholarship

I feel like every school looks at my app and goes "Well her LSAT is alright, but her GPA sucksss. Buuuut her softs show that she's able to achieve at a fairly unique academic level. Do we follow her GPA or her softs?"

I'm a gamble haha.

Token dumb blonde is URM though, so you're good.

Woah this just reminded me that everything I know, all of my work in the Twelve 6, can be gone in an instant. Just yesterday thesandlot was one of us, and now he is no more. They say Twelve 6 4 life, but do they really mean it? When was the last time Eaper posted in here? Exactly. People change once they get in.

I dont think so. If i remember correctly, according to LSN, BU waitlisted some people in Feb. but the majority were in March.

Accepted over two months ago and still haven't heard a peep about a scholarship offer. Given I am by no means entitled to anything, but I figured I would hear something by now with my stats. Anyone else in a similar position?

Got in via call - super surprised, 163/3.70. I'm from cali...maybe they want geographic diversity? also got into BC (BU and BC were the only 2 east coast schools i applied to), best choice on the west coast thus far is hastings and loyola. boy this is going to be tough. I doubt i get into a higher ranked school than BU. I wonder how BU grads fare in the SoCal job market..
