How does one go about negotiating one's scholarship offer?


I heard there's a form, but I'm having trouble finding it.


It's in the portal login under financial aid/merit scholarships I think.


Ah...I haven't yet received the e-mail with my login information. I received the acceptance e-mail late Monday.


I'm also waiting on that email!

I'm going to withdraw my admit within the next week. More slots and $$$ opening up! I did a grad program at GW and loved it - good luck to everyone!

Does anyone know if they took down the scholarship negotiation form? I saw it a while ago but I can't find it now.

When you click on the link to register for the Preview day, at the top of the page they have a message that says they don't have room for plus ones.

Has anyone checked with GW Law whether or not we are allowed to take a guest along for the Preview Day? I am planning on taking my sister along.

Thanks,

Any idea when federal loan info is going to be posted on Banweb? I thought I read mid-March somewhere but still nothing.

Hi! I was admitted via email this past week, but did not hear anything back about scholarships. Does this come in the snail mail?

They tell you in your acceptance email. If you got no news in that email, you will most likely not receive anything for scholarships.

Nothing yet for me. I only sent my form in last week though. I wonder if they'll try to answer before 1st seat deposit, or intentionally only play ball with those who make the deposit.

I emailed last week and was told that we should get a decision before the April 15th deposit deadline at least.

Just got an email with a reconsidered scholly..... meh.

I increased my LSAT score to be wayyyyyyy above 75th instead of just above and only increased by $18,000. Thought their big drop in the rankings would warrant more $.

Looks like i'll be withdrawing soon!
