Same, except for the November part.

The Dean usually makes phone calls around this time of night, here's to making my weekend that much better =).

Dean told me a week ago (during my acceptance call) that she would be out of town this week. So that may be the hold up on some of y'alls phone calls.

As far as turn around I submitted 1/03, got the we have everything on 1/15 and got in 1/18.

Additionally Dean cert. is only required for enrollment. Please keep any scholly info up to date!

She is out of town! She was at a Law School Fair on my campus on Wednesday and I got to meet with her! She was incredibly nice and really helpful. I loved getting to talk to her!

Just got a letter today from UR that I thought might be scholarship info. When I didn't see any numbers I thought it might be about the travel stipend. When I got to the end of the letter, I realized it provided no new information at all. Awesome.

+1

On Friday when I realized I wouldn't hear from any more schools this week I thought, "Well, maybe Richmond will send me a letter about a scholarship," then I saw that and my whole weekend turned into a big game of how to kill time until Monday.

Nothing, at least not from Richmond, plenty from other law schools though. When did you get admitted?

I just got the call. I think I mispronounced the Dean's name at the end. :oops: I asked if I would be offered a scholarship, and she said for those not initially receiving offers, it would be after the deposit deadline in April before that would be considered. She also said only those above the 75th percentile for both LSAT and GPA were offered scholarships up front.

I love the school, very happy regardless.

smh....after all the emails and postcards asking me to apply, they skip over me. I sent it in on the 1/03 but submitted a 2nd LOR on the 1/15. They've even admitted people with worse numbers than me!

WHY IS EVERY SCHOOL HOLDING MY APP

Wait, so have people heard about scholarship info? And are they only offering to those above both medians? A little confused...

If she told you when she called that you have a scholarship and you'll find out later what it is-- you have one. She may have some extra money to distribute after April. Did not mean to be confusing.

Trust me, it's not just about the numbers.

Got my acceptance letter today. No scholarship info but I guess if the above poster is correct I won't be seeing that until after April.

Visited the campus for the first time today. It is absolutely gorgeous. I'm so excited to start in the fall.

Applied 1/7, Admitted 1/21, Scholarship offer $25K per year - maintain good standing

Hm, guess I didn't get one then :( Dean Rahman said she was,"Going to try," and get me some money, guess that was more on the financial aid end than the scholarship end. I'll wait a few more weeks and see what other things turn up.

Hmm. When I got my phone call the dean (mid early December) said that I was a good scholarship candidate and should hear something by late January early February. I have yet to hear anything. I figure they are trickling these things out.

I already applied over a month ago...
