Have you most of you guys submitted Need Access or FAFSA yet or does that not matter for merit aid? I would think not...


haven't submitted my fafsa yet so its probably not predicated on the submission of financial info

When negotiating for scholarships, what would you say BC's peer schools are? Still haven't heard anything but just want to be prepared....

Good schools outside t-14. Emory, ND, GW, BU, Wash U, etc.

Vanderbilt, USC, and UCLA to a lesser extent because their medians are quite a bit higher. But even then, BC has comparable job placement to these schools.

The schools I used as bargaining chips were ND and W&M.

I just got accepted less than 2 weeks ago-- when is an acceptable time for me to email them about scholarship/negotiate if I dont hear anything over the next week? I was thinking of emailing them towards the end of the next week if i dont hear anything but i dont want to annoy them either. thoughts?

By the way, not sure if anyone saw this, but a really cool breakdown of Biglaw from the Class of 2012 by school.

You can see exactly what firms BC Law grads got hired by and how many...pretty nice.

If we didn't get an email today about scholarships, does that mean we aren't getting one?

When were you admitted?

They roll out more later so no not necessarily.

Everyone who received scholarships today seems to be above 75th LSAT based on checking out profiles.
