22k 1st year, 8k 2nd and 3rd years. Not sure if that's enough to make me go.
I got the same offer tonight via email. Not sure how I feel either.
Same. Either I don't understand their tuition structure or that's a really weird scholarship.
I e-mailed CU last year to ask how they came up with the difference between first and second/third year tuition, because the number is bigger than the difference between out-of-state tuition and in-state tuition. This was the reply: "first, that you can establish Colorado residency after one year if you are not already a resident, and second, we award several hundred thousand dollars in scholarship money to our upperclass students each spring. You would be eligible to compete for that money in the spring of your first year, although we have a preference for people who did not receive any money upon entering law school. Again, this is our effort to financially assist as many people as possible with our limited resources." The meeting for upperclass scholarships is in a couple weeks (March 21). I can definitely try to remember to post what my general vibe on them is more after that meeting.
There also seemed to be an implicit "if you lose your scholarship, you'll have at least gotten most of it" rationale too. I don't think I have heard that overtly from the administration though.
