Personally, I think this school is a steal in-state at $22k. For example, I was extremely fortunate to receive a quarter scholarship from UIUC, but that still adds up to over $30k/year in debt OOS. I'm at the 75% of Maryland's LSAT medium but well below the bottom 25% in GPA, should I try to negotiate something with them?
i called yesterday and asked about the admitted students day info. the lady said she would check into it, i will let you guys know when/if i hear back.
diego, i am similar to you numbers wise. i did not receive any scholarship, and so about a month ago, i sent an email asking to be reconsidered, stating maryland was my top choice (it is), and that several other schools had cheaper coa after i received scholarships from them. i have heard nothing back, and i'm not really expecting to. i did apply for the professional school scholarship, which was due in late feb, so hopefully i hear something good from that. luckily, i am instate, so even w/o a scholarship, coa isn't too awful.
