Congrats! Yeah they told me the same thing, the scholarship is guaranteed and to be expecting a packet in the mail in several days!
YAAAH!! im going to look on their website for additional scholarship options
People on here have talked a bit about negotiating scholarship amounts, if you have more competitive offers from other schools. Brooklyn gave me 30 to Cardozo's 25(and Brooklyn is 2 years and Cardozo's 3 so even with dorming it's cheaper) so I'm going to try and see If I can get them to at least match the 30. Once I have all my offers I'm going to make a thread asking for advice for negotiating scholarships.
is dorming cheaper since they are going to charge you to stay during the summer? I thought the totals cane out roughly the same
For me with dorming Brooklyn would be 82 for 2 years (36 if I somehow find an easy way to commute) and Cardozo would be 90 for 3 years without dorming. I haven't heard that they charge you extra for the summer, though I don't know for sure that they don't. Since you got 27(assuming you didn't dorm and were in 2 year program) and might have gotten a few thousand more from Brooklyn to, I'm guessing they would be almost exactly the same for you.
of course lmao they out to make money... they charge for everything. Law school be scamming.
yes they charge you 5k for summer housing and 17k for the rest of the year so your staying for two summers. so 10k for the summers and 34k for the two years excluding the summer.
total 44k for housing.
summer tuition is 16k a summer. you will be there two summers. this is 36k for two summers. first yr tuition is 55k and you will be there for two years. 110k is the total for two years and then add the 36k for the two summers is 146k
so 146k for two yrs of tuition plus the 44k for housing is 190k
so subtract your scholarship which is 30k per year from that and you get your total 100k.
i dont need housing. so my 27k per year skolly (cardozo) leaves me with 27k remainder per year. this is over 3 years totaling to 71k.
I do not think Bk is going to give me a better scholarship, but even if they gave me 30k i still need go commute to BK, as I live on the UES of manhattan. The commute may offset everything. We have a fare hike coming this march for MTA and I need to cut cost any chance I get.
However, I hope BK does give me a better skolly so I can negotiate Cardozo.
I didnt even realize how expensive it is!! Brooklyn is the most affordable! Cardozo is the most expensive out of BK,Cardozo and Fordham. Fordham is ranked better lol, why can't Cardozo lower this tuition?!
Sorry for the long ass rant. I really like math too...so any random chance to add is taken advantage of even if unwarranted and im wrong lol
