I just got my scholly e-mail:

"Congratulations! The Scholarship Committee has awarded you a Scholar in Law Award, one of the most prestigious scholarships bestowed by the Washington University School of Law to entering students. It is offered to a select group whose academic and personal achievements indicate that they will be outstanding law students and lawyers.

Scholarship recipients often are concerned about their financial security being tied to their academic ranking in law school. The School of Law is committed to ensuring that you receive the support necessary to complete your law school education without any added stress or financial burdens. We are very excited to inform you that we guarantee these scholarships for each of the three years that you are in law school. As is the case with all our awards, we hope your success as a Scholar in Law, during and after law school, will inspire and enable you to repay this award at some point in your career for the benefit of future students.

Your award of $36,000.00 will be divided into grants of $12,000.00 for each of the next three academic years, and will be applied toward your tuition as long as you maintain your residency and full-time status at Washington University School of Law.*

Again, congratulations. Washington University School of Law will help you design your legal education to open the doors you choose. I hope to see you here this fall."

I am wondering when I should start negotiating with my almost full ride offer from Wake.

Well, I knew they'd low ball us first time around. I've never been averse to negotiating.

We've discussed it some in the "Wash U Class of 2017" alternate thread (see the "Negotiating scholarships works!" thread too if curious), but again, there's not exactly an advantage to negotiating early, and it's not a race. If anything, the schools involved will have a better idea of what their developing class is looking like if you wait a bit. Remember, prospective students who negotiate are an overall minority, by all accounts. There's gonna be plenty of time to shoot a couple emails back and forth about $$$, and schools will be better preparred to do so in a few weeks when they are less swamped with admits/WL/rejects. Personally, as painful as it is, I'd wait until March 1 to negotiate, maybe last week of Feb. But that's just my (0L) 2 cents. Good luck everybody!

What do you think is the process of negotiating when you have no other good options to negotiate with? For me I feel like it will come down to: I need more to attend/if I get this much I will definitely attend.

Although you may have a "more convincing" case if you have other offers to present, the reality of it is that all you need on your side is "I won't attend your institution". In the end, it's the same to them whether you go to Harvard instead of their school or sit in your parents basement instead of their school--they're trying to get you to attend, and so long as you aren't sufficiently incented to do so, if they want you as a student, they must incent you further.

Edit: To speak to my point a bit further: you just need a reason for not attending that they believe. It could be you got a full ride to Harvard and need more money from them to attend, it could be that you didn't even apply anywhere else but you're unwilling to shoulder that much debt. Either way, if they don't give you more $ you're not attending, what do they care what other offers you have?

True, ok yea, I should be good. Yea just hoping I at least get like a small offer initially, otherwise I'm waiting until seat deposit time.

Yep, peer offers or big schollies can be helpful, but really the sticking point is you are X well qualified and need to see Y more money to attend. And it's nothing personal, they totally understand that equation.

Edit: super scooped

Edit 2: nvm I knew that going in lol not scooped, but concurring
