Are they including need based aid in these award letters or is it all merit?

Nice job. I think I got that 5k second scholarship but my bro couldn't tell if it was annual or what the deal was. Deans something or other.

I checked the mail over lunch and got a big white envelope!

From another school. Poo. I guess my wait isn't up just yet.

Also in STL: 75k + 5k

Not a game-changer but not bad either; we'll see how things play out

75k! I'm pretty pleased considering I am a couple points below the LSAT median. Would it be completely ridiculous of me to try and negotiate it higher with my full ride to Minnesota?

95k (including 5k one-time Dean's Leadership scholly)! 171/3.5x, non-URM.

Not necessarily a game-changer for my current most-likely decision, but I'm still very gratified by the offer!

95k for me (30k per + the 5k Dean's). This means UCLA/UT/Vandy/USC/Minnesota all offered between 85-95k. Do you think these guys talk or what?

At this rate I'll get a "Thanks for applying, we hope you come!" in lieu of scholarship money.

$75,000 plus $5,000 bonus as well

Doesn't seal the deal but puts Vandy near the top :)
