Oh no I meant that Boalt hasn't offered me anything. I guess I could recapitulate my matching scholarship application... I'm saying there would be more to talk about if they made a fin aid decision. Then I could talk to someone re what my expenses will actually look like.

Did they just say, No? Did they give a reason. I like Berk a lot, but where is all the money?

They actually answered that question
After careful consideration of your Matching Scholarship application by the Scholarship Committee, it has been determined that we are not able to offer you a Matching Scholarship. The Committee was very impressed with your accomplishments and aptitude for legal study. We simply have an incredible number of applicants to the program this year and very limited scholarship funding is available.

At Berkeley Law we choose to invest a great deal in need-based grants, summer funding for public interest work, and the Loan Repayment Assistance Program - so while we realize that earning your J.D. at Berkeley Law can be expensive, it also affords you a broad array of opportunities including substantial help in managing your post-graduation debt.

I'm sorry to deliver disappointing news. Feel free to ask me any other questions that you might have about attending (and funding) law school at U.C. Berkeley.

Opened myFinAid and see a 2013-2014 "Gift Aid" that nearly matches my matching request. But I have not received any communication on matching scholarship. So is this something else that is different from matching?

Wow. Thats intense. Im not sure how to respond to that. I guess if they really hand out tons of need based, that makes sense, but if not, that just is rough all around.

So sinfiery is it down to NYU (pending SLS) or are you still thinking Berk at all?

from what others have seen, this is really just need based, but that was a couple weeks ago. congrats! in some cases, it even stacks with your matching. then again, if you demonstrated very little financial need, it could be the matching, but I think in the past people have been emailed about that

My only real career goal is to work for Google so I should take Berk but I'm a stupid kid and will have to go into biglaw for debt regardless. So screw it, I'm gonna enjoy 3 years in NYC

It might be the matching scholarship. My only shows my scholarship, but my need based aid hasn't been processed yet.

Hit the tab "award details". It'll tell you if it's a matching scholarship or not.

yeah... I don't want to induce panic though. Just look at the award details on the finaid page. It'll let you know if it's need based or a matching scholarship.

Looked at the Award Details and it says "Grant - Law" under category "Other Gift Aid". Does it specifically say matching in yours?
