In w/Emery scholarship for $8,000. Was hoping for more, but it's still nice to be wanted

In with Emery $4k. It doesn't say anything about whether it's a 1-year scholarship, or if it's renewable (and if it is, what stipulation it carries, if any). I looked it up on the site, but it didn't really say.

It just says "In recognition of your achievements, you are being awarded the Emery Scholarship in the amount of $4,000". That's it. So do I assume this is a 1-time, non-renewable scholarship?

Nah, the letter you get in the packet doesn't have the stipulations. You'll get another small envelope with Dean Emery's signature with the whole "25%, 12k total if met" deal.

Btw, congrats!

In with $14k. Letter didn't stipulate any conditions -- will have to investigate further.

In with 12K scholarship according to my mom (I'm not at home, so haven't read the letter)

If it's 12K per year its something to consider

12K over 3 years means no Santa Clara for me

From the same person who sent me the email saying they were considering me for the dean's scholarship. Also was excited for absolutely no reason. Mean.

Whatever, they know exactly what they're doing to us. Good thing I'm getting my Lexipro refilled today...

I was on a conference call at work and saw the e-mail from Assistant Dean Jeanette Leach come through. I almost had a nervous breakdown on the phone. I can't believe it was just an e-newsletter. I was relieved and disappointed all in one breath. WTF is up with that? The least they could do is put "Santa Clara Law e-news" in the subject line instead of "From Asst. Dean of Admissions," making you think it's some sort of shady rejection or something. Dangit! So frustrating!

SCU's campus is very nice. It kind of has that mission-style architecture (it actually has a mission). It's well-kept...palm trees all around. It is like a few minutes away from downtown San Jose by car, which has its ghetto parts but has nice parts too. I think the area the school is in is pretty safe. It's not that exciting of an area though. As for the law buildings, I've only been in Bannan Hall when taking the LSAT which is pretty nice as far as the rooms go. To get to nicer places (Los Gatos, Campbell, Palo Alto..they all have great shopping/night life/places to eat), one would probably want a car. However, San Jose does have its charm. The San Jose Earthquakes play at SCU's Buck Shaw Stadium, so that's kinda cool if you are into soccer. Anyway, the campus is pretty nice.


Can you comment on where SCU graduate students like to stay?

yea, that is an odd title: "From Jeane*** Lea**, Assistant Dean of Admissions at Santa Clara Law"

uh, ok. There is also a from column in email.

They all use a email mailing list that tracks how many people open their email. By using a title as such, most people wouldn't hesitate to open. Might just be a way to show the dean that email newsletters work and students are interested to learn more about Santa Clara :P

Got the official letter in the mail today. $11K Emery Scholarship. If that is the total I will be withdrawing.

+1 on the email. Saw it on my phone at work and got so excited/nervous, don't they know what that does to us?

I got my letter today. In with $14,000 Emery Scholarship. I will likely be withdrawing soon....$14,000 still makes tuition super expensive.
