I was accepted on 2/14. I just checked and no info on scholarship.

Hopefully they are doing by first admits.

Has any 2/14 or later admits received a scholarship?

if you get Hawkins for Contracts, it's like winning the lottery for a TLS-er.

he's funny, super smart, you learn a shit ton, and his exams are tailored for those people who prep hard and smart (LEEWS style issue spotting + 1 or 2 small policy questions).

that class is awesome

They're stingy on scholarships. I had schollys from schools ranked higher (low 20's-mid 40's ranging from 20k-60k) and it did nothing in terms of negotiation. Hope y'all have better luck this year :)

They haven't started doing scholarships yet, I believe.

They sent out the first round of scholarships in the past few days. I don't know how they chose those that were selected in this round or whether there will be more going out later though.

Not sure what you mean but it looks like they did them by snail mail and they were also mailed out around the same time. I don't think they did them all in one bunch though.
Heres this if you want to have a look....

Was accepted about 2/1 and received a modest scholarship offer (with non-resident tuition waiver) via email today.

I got the same thing today in an e-mail, with the out of state waiver...makes it seem a little better. Admitted 1/13 if anyone's wondering.

I am pretty sure they give the stingiest scholarships in the country I got 2,500 a year haha. I will also be trying to negotiate just to see if it goes anywhere

Do they not give more than that? I would think someone with your numbers would get more than me if that was possible.
