Hi guys,

I am in via the status checker. No email though. Is that normal? Also when will they send any scholarship information? If not should I email them?

Thanks

Same happened to me. I was in via status checker on Fri, April 11 and on Monday April 14th at 9am I got the admissions email. Later in the week, on Thursday I also received the scholarship information.

Congratulations!

Just received my scholarships today (28k). Any chance negotiating to 32k or 35k? Currently wait-listed at Iowa and WF and waiting on several other school as well.

Just put my deposit down at Brooklyn while I wait to see what happens with Fordham, Cardozo, and BC.

Was accepted on the 22nd, found out three days later I had a 28k/year scholarship. Negotiated with them to increase it to 40k/year. 158 LSAT and 3.5 GPA.

Good luck to everyone else to still waiting to hear back or get more scholly money.

Withdrew my app and then got a scholarship increase from 28k to 40k. Makes BLS a little bit more appealing

Definitely! Fordham sent me a f**k you email when I negotiated the scholarship offer ($10K). I am going to attend Bklyn since they made me the super-generous offer of $44K.

Let's chat / stay in touch.

Same, I told them I'll be going after they made the increase. It's a slight added bonus that tuition is going to be frozen as a trade off for not getting the reduced tuition rates
