Maybe I am paranoid, but I worry that this is somehow in lieu of a scholarship offer. Did any of you scholarship recipients receive this letter as well? If so, did it come first, followed by the offer? Or were they together?
This is the scoop I hear from UT: IF you have at least a 168 and a GPA over 3.65ish, you will be eligible about $12K in merit scholarship. The scale goes up from there .. mostly based on LSAT.
So, based on your numbers, you can sortof guess where you will fall.
Thanks, curious. I am a splitter, so there's no telling, I guess. I should probably just be thankful to be admitted.
That's what they want you to think. Give it some time, but don't make any decisions until you've at least requested a scholarship. They aren't going to rescind your offer because you asked. FWIW, 171, 3.72, $120,000.
