but i seriously did consider CLS if i got the hamilton. given my options now, there's no way i'd go there. i want to do biglaw, and Y's #s are underwhelming (I know I know, self-selection but still), so i would take CLS 50/50 if given the free ride. if i were to theoretically write a really aggressive financial aid bargaining letter of "Hamilton or withdrawal", who should I address it to? The admissions office or the financial aid office?
apologize again for being a total douche about this. it's a good problem to have, I know.
Understandable issue. I wish I had your bargaining chips for a CLS scholarship. two things came to mind:
1) they might not have given you the scholarship because with the strength of your application, they thought you might not even take hamilton over yale in the first place. so convincing them you might could turn out.
2) I mean no offense -- you have (clearly) an incredible application with terrific results -- but from what I've seen, with only 1 or 2 exceptions, all the hamiltons and most butlers have been offered to 176+ LSAT, seems like an almost automatic thing at that price point. they would probably give you a full ride if you asked for it though.
