Y'all just got that email today? I got that same email on Feb 9th...that's kind of strange. But I was also mad when I originally got it and realized it wasn't scholarship info...and that was over 2 weeks ago now, haha.

I already got those emails/letters too. I'm assuming the people who are getting them now applied later.

I applied Oct 5th and was accepted in early December when they began reviewing apps. I'm sure they sent them in batches.

Yeah I am within the same time frame as you. That is probably the case.

I also received the emails today, and thought it was the scholarship info at first. Also, received an email letting me know I would be getting a snail mail Message From the Dean which was waiting in the mailbox when I got home.

I got the email when I was in class today and saw the subject line. Had to wait a painful hour to see the contents before I realized it wasn't the offer. Oh well, it seems like they've committed to sending it out this week so I'm satisfied. Especially with the uptick in communication today.

Got my email from the Dean and a hard copy letter about a month ago, and was accepted in mid-December.

I have been mulling over the scholarships though. It seems, according to LSN (and that's not a great sampling size I know), that Loyola tends to award large scholarships to URM and / or Non-Trad students, and then there seem to be some anomalies. For example, lower LSAT and median GPA candidates getting a fairly sizable chunk of change. So, as I began pouring over what limited data was available a sinking feeling came over me.

I looked up Loyola's COA which is estimated to be around $60,375. I went back and looked over the scholarship offers from Loyola and it struck me that, more often than not, median applicants got just enough scholarship money to bring the COA down to around $40,000. Interestingly, that $40K is almost the exact maximum amount one can borrow via the Stafford + GradPlus programs. The folks who get large offers were those who either blew the doors of Loyola's median stats, were URM / Non-Trad, or probably had some soft factors that were spectacular (cause the GPA and LSATs were not).

Maybe I am just working myself up for no reason, and I assure you folks that I am not trolling, or trying to be a downer, but has anybody else noticed this from LSN, or any other sources? Loyola is known for being a generous school with a very low median debt for its law grads, but what I've reviewed makes me nervous.

Thoughts anyone?

Yes, you should calm down and wait the maximum of two more days for your offer haha.

You seem to have answered your own question - LSN's sample is small, and skews because its users are the most motivated and informed law school applicants. They seem pretty committed to the March 1st thing, so I wouldn't be shocked if we got scholarship offers this week.

Grad plus does not have a maximum.... Has anyone received scholarships yet?

Just got an email with my scholarship. Dean's Scholarship - 20k/year with 2.7 stip. I'm probably going to need more than this to pull me away from LSU.

Got the email too, 25k/year with a 2.7 stip. I'll be withdrawing. Best of luck!

Got a offer today. 15k a year 2.7 stip.

I had a good laugh.

Will be withdrawing. Too little, too late.

Only 6k/year, not to sound pretentious but that's laughable. Will be withdrawing.

My offer was $30,000/yr maintaining 2.7. I had a 3.51 From Tulane with an 163 LSAT. I was expecting a little more...

Doesn't sound like many people are extremely pleased with what they got so far...I am wondering if they spread the scholarships out too thin among the applicants since they waited so long to make the decisions.

I only got $10,000. Same stip. Similarly ranked schools in the South have offered me 75% tuition in one case, full tuition in another. Neither is in New Orleans, however. Even so, that's probably not enough money to entice me when I'm still holding out hope for Ole Miss, LSU, and FSU, and also have already been accepted to Texas Tech which looks like it would allow me to have a much lower total COA.
