Regardless, I sent in my half-deposit last night and was offered 4k/yr guaranteed via email just now. Better than nothing, especially considering that all of my other scholly offers in the Midwest have had unreasonable stipulations attached.
:roll:


Congrats! I'm glad they offered you something. I just sent in my deposit an hour ago. I got no scholarship but the school just really "sold" it to me during the admitted students event. I got to know several attorneys and students as they contacted me via email and phone. Interestingly, none of the other schools went through this much trouble to provide information about their programs.

But, alas, Kent only offered me $76,000 over the four years. Northwestern offered me $90,000 over three. I emailed Kent to negotiate, and they increased my scholarship to $100,000 over four years, with no stiuplations.

Really? Really? I was nervous that they would give me full tuition, because then I would have a really difficult decision to make. But, no. I know Northwestern is more expensive, and I'll have to go full time, but I needed Kent to be a bit more generous for them to be competetive.


I think you're in good shape. NU with basically any money is better than a full at Kent, and with 90k its no contest.

Where on the status checker does it give the information about scholarships? I didn't see anything obvious on mine, but just wanted to see where it should be.

Scholarship info came in today for 8,000 / year. I don't think it's enough to sway me, but I will wait a day or so (or take the Kent method and wait 4 months) to decide.

LOL.

The scholarships comes with no stips.... good way to try and attract people.

I'm still undecided at this point, and the LUC seat deposit deadline is quickly approaching.

The LUC scholarship is also free of stips. I took a quick peek and Kent is @ 42,900 and LUC is @ 39,850 for a difference of 3,050 / year. If you take the 3,050 off the Kent scholarship, I am looking at a difference of less than 2,000 / year (6,000 total). In the grand scheme, I don't think it is enough to sway me away from LUC, but I am just not sure.

Is anyone planning on attending the Dean's Program on April 21st?

Also, just out of curiosity, is there a Facebook group or another thread on TLS for those attending Kent this upcoming Fall?

does anyone know when the seat deposit due date is for kent? Since i'm on the deferred list, this will help give me a better idea of when i'll hear my final decision.

Thanks! I really wonder how their deferment process is and what would increase my chances. Anyone have experience with it?
