Did anyone else get a really low scholarship offer accompanied with a letter saying that if you opted into the binding program you'd get a substantially higher scholarship?

I called last Friday to get more information and clarity to make sure they used my highest LSAT in their calculations, but they haven't called back yet.

I did get the letter, but thought my initial offer was pretty great too

I know the seat deposit deadline is April 1, so I would assume sometime after that.


Thank you!

Hmm, I didn’t get that letter, but I got one inviting me to the binding program (there was no mention of extra scholarship money for doing that)

I got the same letter letting me know if I opted for the binding program I could get a better scholarship offer. I just emailed to ask what that realistically would mean for me. I am strongly considering opting in and also not having to pay the seat deposit is a plus! I'm planning on flying out (I am from Sacramento, CA) in the next week or so to check everything out first. But since I got accepted ASU has grown on me every day.

The new campus is great and they have some really interesting satellite learning opportunities in DC and LA that I find really attractive.

Yes!!! I'm curious how much they would be willing to up the scholarship, because that could make or break my decision!

I just got an email back! I was told that if I opted into the binding merit scholar program, the average scholarship increase is 10%-25% more than the regular decision applicants. I was also told the deadline to opt in was March 1, 2018.

Is this different than the O'Connor Honors Scholars program?

I got a call today about all of this and you do have room to negotiate. So absolutely reach out.

Yes, the O'Connor Honors Scholars program is a binding decision that guarantees a full-ride and you must have a 3.8 GPA and a 164 LSAT.

Did you get any other information from this call? Did they say anything specific about increasing scholarships?

Oh okay, that explains why I didn’t get the same letter than. I got the O’Connor one. Thanks for clarifying!

Has anyone reached out about the travel stipend for the admitted students day and not heard back? I emailed for information about 2 weeks ago and am wondering if I should follow up. I live in South Carolina so I figure the earlier I can book the better chance the stipend will be able to cover most of the flying expenses.

I would definitely follow up. I heard back within a day of emailing them- I am sure they are just super busy right now, so I would check in again!

I emailed and got an email back the next day. They will reimburse up to $500 for a flight.
