I sent mine in ~March 4th, was asked to wait until mid-March, and then heard back from Dean S yesterday.

:D :D :D Yayyy! Congrats! I'm still waiting on some additional schools and aid packages but we may be classmates yet :) I really like UCLA and their scholarship amount was alright. Either way, I'm jealous you're done with your cycle. That alone is a beautiful thing.

Email Dean Schwartz directly. He's very good at responding

Cool! I'll be taking BART in but it's nice to know I won't be the only one going. Are you bringing any guests?

Me too, luckily there's a station close to work. And nah, my GF wants nothing to do with most of this stuff, haha. Hopefully the food is good.

Finally heard back about scheduling the interview for Achievement Fellowship via email a few hours ago. They're conducting interviews on March 23 and 24.

Same - there's a station less than a mile from where I work and my boyfriend is definitely over hearing me talk about this admissions process. I have a feeling I'll be getting there early so hopefully there's a Starbucks or something nearby. It'll be interesting to go to Cooley, and they better have a good dinner! I guess I'll see you on Monday!

Also just FYI, if you get admitted too close to the deadline schools seem to be pretty flexible in giving an extension when requested. Certainly would be worth asking about if you need to. Good luck!

I went complete around 3/2 -- has anyone who is on a similar timeline heard anything? I'm just anxious, especially as the cycle winds down. I took the Feb LSAT which explains why I'm so behind. 50th Percentile LSAT, 75th Percentile GPA.

Yes, me :) I also took the Feb LSAT. I went complete 3/2, got the phone call 3/13 and scholarship info 3/14. I was a splitter <25th GPA, >75th LSAT, and not a CA resident.

It sounds like your numbers are good and hopefully good news will follow soon! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

What's the most you've guys seen someone get awarded for merit scholarship besides the full achievement scholars program.

$110k is the highest initial offer I've seen but I haven't been following super closely.
