Has anyone had any success negotiating scholarships with Oregon?

So ... I received an email from a professor asking me if I had any questions about my acceptance today ... although I have not recieved an admissions packet or an email confirming admission from the University.

Intersting time line.

Good luck to those still waiting.

11 days later....still stalking the mailman. Anyone hearing anything lately?



Unbelievably I am still waiting for an initial answer. This is the last school I am waiting for a response from now. Hope it comes any day as I have a Seattle deadline looming.

Is anyone else getting answers or invites from the waitlist? Maybe the class is settled now.

I actually forgot I applied to this school until I looked at my excel sheet.... Are they even giving money to people still?

Got my waitlist snail mail yesterday. Anyone else getting anything? I am wondering whether I should press hard to get off the waitlist or just let this one go.

What are your other options? LST says Oregon will be rough without substantial $$$. Beautiful, though.

The other comparable I am weighing is Seattle U summer start with $ - so not long to screw around waiting for waitlist acceptances.

Any word on waitlist admits recently? No action on this topic in several weeks.

I got the same offer... my scholarship was tripled, effectively bringing my tuition below 20k...
This would be my cheapest offer and if this had been a month ago (before I decided to retake), I would have accepted it right away.
Well there's that and the fact that Portland is a very, very insular market...

But I've already started serious LSAT prep and am already PT-ing 10 points higher than my near-cold December score and I can't honestly consider giving up on an October retake without a full-ride...

Scholly upped again... to 20k/yr.
Getting a JD at Oregon will now cost a tad more per year than I paid to get my BA....
Really, really hard to make a decision at this point. Retake? Oregon JD for under 40k?

Oregon for under 40K is a pretty good deal. I'd take it (school strong in region for little debt) unless you think you can get into T14 if you retake.

edit: Unless you have a lot of existing debt already.

Problem is I took the LSAT unprepared and part of me keeps thinking I'm doing myself a disfavor by not taking it after seriously studying. But the manageable debt load I'll take on at Oregon (0 undergrad debt) would make my life a hell of a lot easier after graduation even if I don't end up with a "good" job.
