Guys what is the deal with scholarships? I'm at 75% LSAT, way above 75% GPA. Haven't heard anything. Has anyone heard anything?

Did you get the email asking you to (essentially) apply for merit aid? I did that and I'm still waiting to hear. Today at the Georgetown Open House event I've heard a few folks mentioning their scholarship packages, so some folks have clearly gotten at least initial offers. I'm planning to speak with someone in financial aid tomorrow, so I'll post an update if I hear anything about the scholarship timeframe.

Thanks. Did these people drop numbers at all? I did not get such an email.

Everyone who mentioned their scholarships seemed to have done well this cycle (acceptances at Harvard, NYU, and a few other higher-ranked schools all came up in conversation).

Preferred waiting list! Not special group. Pretty happy with this though. I'll wait.

Yeah, alumni interview 3/23. Original complete was back in early January. I believe I posted all of my dates before ITT, at the top of this page.

Good luck! :)

My application was submitted more than a month ago, and the application has been sitting at "application completed" since 2/21. I still haven't received any updates for what has been more than a month. Should i call the admissions office? What do you think might be going on?

According to the stats [http://top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=225363]here[/url], there is only a 1/5 chance of getting admitted off the waitlist. Jesus.

Are the stats any different for the preferred waitlist specifically?
