All RD acceptances go by mail, so everyone who was going to find out today found out a long time ago.

That's a bit of an assumption. It's entirely possible that someone was not home all day, and only just in the past few hours got home and checked their mail.

Haha...I really just meant acceptance. Getting some money from CLS would be great but I have personal factors that make NYC schools very attractive.

EDIT: Also, go Jets!! 8)

I also have some personal reasons that make an nyc school a very good choice, but I didn't get a scholarship offer w my acceptance.

Not all merit scholly money has gone out, right? I thought it was just hamiltons/butlers

Yes. Only Hamiltons and Butlers go out with acceptances. Everything else wil be awarded in March, IIRC.

are these later awards merit awards or need aid. I see on lsn last year a number of 175+/3.6- people with 75k or 50k and wondering if these are butlers, merit awards given later, negotiated merit, or financial aid.

Yeah I wish you could tell on lsn what was merit and what was financial aid...anyone know for sure about whether columbia gives other smaller merit scholarships?

Last year's Columbia c/o 2012 thread made it pretty clear that they take merit considerations into account when awarding need-based aid. I remember thinking it was pretty suspicious that a good deal of people with higher lsats and not much need ended up with decent need-based aid packages. :lol:

yea but I imagine that one would at least need to be in a position of financial need right? is that to say that merit enters into it but its still awards given to people without savings and parents making 100k+.

superserial is a CLS 1L and she applied RD with 175 3.6. She didn't get any merit aid but definitely got some generous need-based aid that she felt was more LSAT based.

yeah... I don't qualify for need-based aid, but I was still given 40K of "need-based aid" :D .

I had to fill out the financial aid form in order to apply for grants.

my parents probably couldn't fully pay... but I don't think I qualify for need-based aid... that's what other schools where I applied for need-based aid told me, at least.
