3 business days. Express strong interest and they will probably throw cash at you. I have 158/3.72 and I got $30000. Congrats!
Great advice, but I tailored my application to express BLS as my top choice. I wrote a very strong addendum that I'm now regretting wishing I waited until after. I had a low 150 score the first time I took the LSAT and then got a 159 on the feb LSAT. I applied back in January to show my eagerness. I am wondering if it is now a mistake and I am so eager that they know ill pay sticker price (if it even works like that).
I think you are still in somewhat of a power position. Write to them and highlight the following:
1) The fact that you've been so eager all along, and that you've been willing to work hard and retake the LSAT to improve your chances of being admitted. The commitment will look good.
2) Mention any other offers you've had from similar schools. Just state the obvious fact that Brooklyn is so damn expensive to live in!
These two factors, combined with the fact that they just slumped in the rankings, might get you some cash. Good luck! If you want to see what I emailed to them, PM me and I'll copy and paste it to you.
