A lot of Alabama's scholarships have had stips like being in top 50% of class in the past and it seems as though they are keeping with that this year, unfortunately. Just fyi, the Dean's Scholarship only has a good standing stip, no top 50% condition. I have heard that it is possible to negotiate with them on the stipulations, especially if you have a scholarship from a peer school that does not have the same conditions. If you're interested, you should at least try negotiating.

+1
I've heard that all but the Dean's Scholarship are conditional on you being in the top 50%. Dean's Scholarship is conditional of staying in good academic standing, which is a 2.33. Definitely can't hurt to negotiate it though!

I was awarded a Dean's scholarship earlier this cycle. PM for stats and/or questions about the interview.

Attended Alabama's Open House today. As usual, Alabama Law really rolled out the red crimson carpet!

Alabama just offered me a faculty scholarship, increasing my offer from $75,000 to $90,000 with the opportunity to receive a faculty assistant position as a 2L or 3L. Very happy to be offered this!

Does the status checker change to accepted/denied?

Yes, it does. Mine didn't change until a few days after the acceptance call, though.

Advice needed.. I received a missed call from the dean of admissions today while I was in class. The voicemail she left just asked to call her back. Other voicemails I've gotten have just gone ahead and offered me admission. Did I get in? OR is this a UVA type call where she gauges interest and then offers admission if I'm really interested?

There's really no way to know. It could be an offer of admission or just a question about your app. Just call back in the morning! They are all super nice.

I have been under review since January as well and my date changed on 2/19... hopefully this means a decision soon (plus looks like a lot of other movement from people above)

In my experience, chances are you're in. The reps at Alabama don't like to leave decision information in voicemail messages. They prefer to speak with you in realtime.

Hey everyone! I've been under review for four weeks now. Getting anxious.

How's the decision time for everyone else? Should I start to get worried ?
