You've got a great shot to get a lot of money. Had very similar stats when first admitted with $$$ before I improved my score on September exam. Visiting the school soon

Checking in. Has anyone been offered an interview for the "Dean's Scholarship" or interviewed already? I have mine soon and I'm not sure what to expect

Yes, I had my Dean's Scholarship interview and it went really well. I had fun with it and found out within 2 weeks after if I got it or not!

Sweet, will you consider Bama if (read: when) you get the scholarship?

It's a one on one interview with the Dean. He will have a copy of your resume with notes. He's super relaxed, just be prepared to chat about yourself!

I got the waived fee and gift card but I still had to submit a PS. Weird.

Sent in an app today though, excited to hear back!

That's awesome sweet!!! Congratulations!!

How do you use the Status Checker on their website? I submitted my streamlined app yesterday but I don't have any login credentials to access the status checker.

Does anyone know what kind of numbers you need to get an interview for the Dean's scholarship?

I'm guessing a 164+ LSAT and a decent GPA.

I would have guessed higher than that, but seems reasonable.

Did they ask you to interview when they accepted you or did the interview request come separately?

Same time, but mine may have been weird for lots of reasons.
