I'd rather be castrated than work at Wachtell. I don't care if they start handing out 100% bonuses again (yes, that means first years were making 330k a few years ago), it's not worth it. CravaTTTh isn't even setting the bonus market these days, so I dunno what the attraction is there.

Somewhat dated, but this site gives you a rough idea of how schools do in placing at certain firms: http://lawfirmaddict2007.blogspot.com/

They received my scholarship form just a few days later, so I'm expecting my letter to be mailed either today or tomorrow.

They received my form on 1/06 and I have no sign of it being sent yet. Nice to see that someone on 1/04 got theirs sent, but aren't there still december people who haven't heard yet? When I emailed admissions, they said that everything would be out by the end of the month for people who sent their forms in before the time of Dean Hoye's original email.

My suspicion is that they are not only sending offer letters out in order of the date of submission, but they're also taking numbers into account and mailing off the large offers first. We haven't really seen any 30k or below offers yet, and certainly no one has reported getting offered zero dollars. The people who've alread received their offer letters are reporting 54k-90k (generally), which is relatively high.

Is anyone with a 3.9+ and 170+ still waiting on their scholarship letter? (provided you submitted your application for admission before the new year)

Shoot I'm still waiting on my acceptance lol. Hopefully I'll hear something on that front this week so I can get my scholarship info in ASAP.
