The MyAwards info is up. Mine is a little different than the estimate, so be sure to check it out.

Man, NorCal schools hate me.

$0.00 here too. At $76,285 in loans, I'll likely be bowing out baring any unexpected, massive, scholarship.

Dude, if you get more $$ from Davis and decide to move here, we should just house/swap. Seriously.

Haha, seriously there is about a 1% chance I stay in Chicago. If I do move, you should take my place. It's large for a 1br and the location would be perfect for public transit.

Although the debt is a lot to take on, I spoke with the Financial Aid Office and was told that (with few exceptions) most people receive an increase in grant/scholarship money each year of attendance.

Just something to consider.

For those coming to ASW, there will be a moot court exhibition round starting at 4:30pm featuring the top two oral advocate teams from the 2L moot court program squaring off in front of a panel of 5 Judges (1 Sup Ct. AK, 2 ED CA, 2 3DCA). It is open to the public and oral arguments should last for a little over an hour.

If we didn't get an email, is it safe to assume that we didn't get merit aid? I see a $14K grant on MyAwards, but I know that is from the financial aid office, not adcomm.

I'm assuming so. I received two separate grants - one for 14k and the other for 11k - which I'm guessing are both need based aid. The financial aid email stated that I would receive 25k in need based aid. I was hoping for some sort of merit aid in addition to the need aid, but it doesn't seem like that will happen. I wonder if they are open to negotiation?

Received a merit aid email today that was sitting in my spam folder. Received 5,000 for 1L or 15,000 total. That brings my total aid to 30k a year. Not bad, but that still leaves me with a pretty high COA.

Last Thursday. I received my need-based aid email before my actual acceptance haha. They sent this merit email today at 2:50 but I just saw it. Pleased that I received at least some merit aid, but Davis is still super expensive.

I don't expect need based, but still would love to know if I got any money, I will just assume I didn't since deposits are due in two weeks and haven't heard a peep since my acceptance packet, anyhow, congrats on the money. Where does it rank with your current choices?

30k merit aid email was sitting in my Junk mail. Check your junk mail, guys! This means I'll be visiting Davis this week just to see if I'll consider it. Very surprising given my #s. Gotta say, I'm really appreciative.

I would need probably $40k+/yr between merit and grants to attend. "Estimates" and small merit offer put me at $20k/yr. :|

There seems to be a general trend going on here. Hopefully Davis adcomms are listening and will amp up the dough for future generations.

I want to ask for money but I don't have leverage :( only thing is 30000K at Loyola which is actually less considering I have 35000K in need and merit based aid. Some of the numbers here are shocking - I want dat 90K lol.

Wow! Sorry to be stalkerish and all - I see we have the same LSAT but my GPA is higher. Did you not get need based aid? I wish I knew your secret lol.
