Im out of state and have been accepted with the merit scholarship that brings my tuition closer to instate- the letter approximates the scholly will be no less than 18,800/year bringing tuition to around 23k/year. There are no stipulations and I receive the scholly until Im able to become a resident at which point I receive the cheaper instate tuition. Do you think its worth it to email and ask for more money? Ive been accepted at some comparably ranked schools and offered money. I have a 160/3.4. Im super interested in USC and will probably go there anyway, but more money is always better.
Im interested in public interest law and it seems that most schools offer public interest scholarships opportunities but I havent been able to find anything on USCs website. Am i missing something? Are there any other scholarships for which I can apply? My biggest concern is hearing that people who are not from SC cant get a job. Im from FL but Im not interested in going into private practice. How do graduates from out of state fare for govt/public jobs?
I am curious to see if you get any additional money but my best guess is unlikely. Someone was unsuccessful earlier in the thread using Alabama as a bargaining chip (it was actually cheaper to go there too). The school and state, in general, appear to be having budget problems as well. As far as being an out-of-stater, I know someone from Texas who graduated from USC and clerked after graduation for a district judge, so it is possible.
