It's high on my list but it's not THE school I'm waiting to hear back from.

It's high on my list, but I can probably be swayed by more money from another school.

Meh... I applied because it's a T14 - we'll see how my cycle goes.

Still feel really unsure. I'll probably visit or go to ASW to get a better feel for the school/location.

There can be a half Darrow too, right?

the Dean's Scholarship is 120K. I'm sure you can get an unnamed reward that is half of a Darrow.


Dean's Scholarship is just what they call merit aid. It can be any amount

ah didn't know that, thanks!

If I was admitted just before the first Darrows went out and didn't get one, does that mean I won't be getting an interview?

Why does it take some applicants days to complete but weeks for others?

Because they have high LSAT scores? Law schools prioritize high LSAT scorers because they will be rarer, and thus more valuable, this cycle. But I feel like high LSAT scorers getting admitted first will be the case every cycle.

Took me a full month to go complete and I have a 175 and decent GPA + Why Mich. in fact, I think 9 in 10 I've seen accepted on LSN have lower LSATs.

Question: anyone else see on their admissions communications on the admitted students website "Dean's Scholarship Award Letter," but have not received an email about it? The date for the mailing was 12/22, so should I assume I will get the email soon?
