That's a pretty big jump. Can you give numbers and other acceptances/scholarships?

Seems far-fetched, but I think it's def worth trying for more.

Am I the only one who got $18,000/year? Seems strange...

Has anyone who was accepted to the May program gotten any sort of scholarship/money? Got my acceptance letter today but nothing at all about financial aid/scholarship

Nope. It is my understanding after talking to current and past May students that they don't really give money to May students. They might give a little but that's about it.

Ah that's disappointing, thanks for the info. I'm probably going to give them a call tomorrow to see what they have to say about it.

Do you mind sharing (PM or here) the details like timing, etc. for ASD? I got in last week and haven't gotten my acceptance packet yet and sent them an email asking for information but haven't heard back.... :(

I called but no definitive answer really. It seems like they are still working on packages according to the woman on the phone. Hoping for the best!

I was told by Cardozo they they do not offer more than a full scholarship, but the ABA data says otherwise………. last year 8 people received more than full tuition. :?

Received an email telling me I've been waitlisted for Fall. Replied requesting to be kept on the waitlist and added for consideration for May. Hoping I get in the May program. :fingers crossed:

Anyone know how long it usually takes to hear back about May admission?

Same thing happened to me and I was accepted to the May program within a week of my fall waitlist email. Good luck!!

I got a call a few weeks ago notifying me of acceptance, and I thought they mentioned a Dean's Scholarship for $30k a year. However, in all acceptance letters following, there has been no mention of any money. Is this what's happening with you guys as well? Or did they actually say something like "We're considering you for a $30k a year scholarship" and I misheard?

Thanks!

Oh man, I would love to know that quickly. I'll be on the lookout for something soon then. Did they give you a deadline by which you had to let them know if you would accept/put a deposit on your spot? I only ask bc I'm waiting to hear back from another school. Trying to work out some sort of timeline. Congrats on getting in though!

Thanks! I'm sure you'll know soon. Cardozo seems to have a quick turnaround.
The deadline for the seat deposit is March 28th. The price is greater than a regular seat deposit since it is also a tuition deposit from what it says in the letter.

I got my acceptance packet in the mail today and the scholarship award letter was right behind the acceptance letter.
I'd call them if I were you.

Got accepted a few weeks ago and I’m seriously considering going here. Does anyone know how much the Alabama costs per semester? Also, is anyone planning on visiting soon?
