It sounds like it's full tuition + stipend. Anyone mind sharing more details (or is this common knowledge and I'm just dumb?)

Thanks!

According to the email, it's full tuition plus a $15k/year stipend (I totally didn't know about the stipend either!)

Congrats to everyone else who got the good news today!

No stips mentioned in the email -- it says the scholarship and stipend are for all three years.

Congrats to all the Rubies!

I'm a 2L Rubenstein. If you have any questions about how the scholarship works shoot me a PM :).

Short version:
You get a third of your stipend at the beginning of each quarter. It is taxable, but they do not do any withholding.
You're assigned a faculty mentor before you arrive. Some people go out to lunch once and otherwise don't interact. Other people put it to much more use.
There is one dinner a quarter. They tend to be awesome and have cool speakers.
There are no stipulations.

Hey that sounds pretty sweet. How do I get one of those?

(Kidding, I know that the answer = be amazing.)

Checking in. Submitted 12/17, Complete 1/7, UR 1/30. I'm a long shot hoping that Highly Unique softs carry me. Not a URM.

They should have another batch of interview invites soon, though! Remember this tweet from last week? "We're having a great time meeting so many unique applicants. Perhaps we should get to know a few more of you." I believe I was on the tail end of this most recent batch of interviews and mine was on the 30th.

Anybody have any groundless speculation about the next round of decisions? Last year they came out about 3 weeks after the first round.

If this is the case, the next round should be 2/11 with scholarship info coming out on 2/25.

If you go UR1 -> UR2 without an interview request, does that mean a ding is likely on its way?
