No, but they had those at the event -- SO GOOD. Apparently the factory shut down? Idk some girl was telling me that.

This one was just a chocolate covered biscuit, but really good.

I want them to send me more! Would it be weird if I asked them where they got it from?

I'm a little confused as to what they ask in this interview. Do they really ask what other schools you're considering and how much you're getting from them as someone else stated earlier?


I was asked this.

Even after a small merit award, it looks like I'd be signing up for a world of debt hell. Yikes.

Same, along with some $ from the "dean fund". Then infinity Grad PLUS loans.

Did you guys hear about scholarships (slash interview earlier) in this email? My interview is this week and I haven't gotten an email.

Apparently the email that went out today isn't related to the law school's academic scholarships. I called Admissions to confirm, as I had my interview recently and was none too thrilled to see an empty Award History page.

confusing, as I had money in that page. I guess I'll just be quiet until I get my phone call.

What does the LW in "LW/Federal Direct Loan Unsub" stand for? Law? Lawrence Welk?

I know everyone is currently worried about scholarships, but does anyone know where the law students live? Do they stay around the law school for the most part or are they better places to live?

From what I could gather at ASW....Mt Vernon, Fed Hill and Canton were popular places. I drove past Mt Vernon and it seemed nice. Though I really have no clue.

How much $$$ have people gotten? UMD seems like they're being pretty stingy with schollys.

I told them in my scholly interview about the money I was being offered by Wake Forest and others to the tune of 2/3 tuition. I didn't get the feeling they would be coming close to that.

So they haven't even given you an offer yet? I got that vibe from them as well when I spoke with one of the ladies in admissions. I haven't heard anything from UMD regarding $$, but I also got a nice scholly from Wake. Maryland was my top choice originally, but, unfortunately, it doesn't look like they're coming through with $$.

I was hoping for a little more, I'd love to go to Maryland but obviously it'd have to be the right price. I told them two other scholarships I'd received from higher ranking (20-30) schools and they offered a little less than half of that, $10,000. Is that similar to others' experiences?
