So this is on the admitted students portal

Will GW Law negotiate my financial aid/merit scholarship package with me based on offers I've received at other schools?

No. All schools have different criteria for determining aid based on need and/or merit, different amounts of funds available, and varying levels of demand. Unfortunately, we are not in a position to adjust offers to admitted students based on those of other schools.

Anyone planning on negotiating scholarships?

I saw this. Was a little bummed since I would be pretty interested at a better price than my current aid offer. Also, their $3,000 seat deposit seems a little much.

Peeked at last year's thread and it seems like there is a form to request scholarship 'reconsideration' - so basically, they negotiate in a more formal way it looks like, and you might have to name your target number. We'll see what it looks like for us.

It's $3,000...???

Got it. This sounds reasonable then. I'm sure they have an idea of what options certain number sets have available to them anyways.

Congrats to all those who got in! I went complete 12/12 bc strangely, GW was the only school that found issue with my transcript and it took two weeks for the resend to process. Here's hoping! :D

I went UR 12/5 I believe. Looks like the trend is to send out decisions on Thursdays. Also, everyone last Thursday got an email around 2:50pm.

Hoping they just say that to deter applicants from trying. Hard to go there with more money from higher ranked schools with lower COL..
