So is there any type of class of 2020 Facebook group/page or something like it? I've seen ones for other schools and it might be helpful in networking and stuff throughout this semester and summer!

As a follow-up to this. After getting their e-mail about the financial aid application process, I decided to go ahead and see what type of need-based funding I might receive. After submitting my Fin aid form, I received an e-mail the next day (perhaps coincidental but probably not) with a 30k merit scholarship offer. Merit offers of more than 16k per year disqualify you from need-based grants so a 10k per year offer could work out better in the long run than, for example, a 30k offer. I'm curious to know what I might qualify for in terms of need-based funding.

Did anyone receive a confirmation email for registering for preview day? I can't remember if I registered or not but don't want to accidentally register twice.

Is there anywhere online that displays our scholarship offer? I seem to have misplaced the page of my admission letter that indicated the amount :roll: I know what it is, but I need it for the purpose of showing other schools what it is.

Yep. I did. I guess all admitted students would have. Might attend the one at end of March. Was just wondering if the scheduled class would be a mock class or is it possible to attend a real class? Sit with the present students?

The mini-preview earlier this month sat in on a real class, we could actually choose from 3. I'd imagine for the large one they'd move a class to a larger room to accommodate everyone, but have current students there.

Not likely. There are only Admitted Students Receptions, and the DC one was Feb. 8.

EDIT: there's a $250 travel stipend for the March 31 preview event, only if you matriculate.

"A reimbursement of up to $250 for travel expenses (airfare, train tickets, bus fare, car mileage) incurred to attend either Preview Day or Mini-Preview will be available upon matriculation in August. Please hold on to your receipts, which may be turned into Law School Fiscal Services between Orientation and September 15, 2017"
