Took a while for things to arrive on my end. Over a week. The package is thin and was pretty damaged by the time it arrived on my doorstep.

It included a sticker.

I'm visiting in March. So excited to see the campus and the Twin Cities, but little plans to attend Minnesota.

Are you serious? OOS Tution is only 37K, why are they going to give someone almost twice the tution amount per year?

Got the same at UIUC, waiting on other similar schools. Minn seems like a pretty cool school, I'm just not sure about being somewhat restrained to the northern Midwest forever. Scholly definitely keeps it in the running though!

Not to be contradictory, but I was offered almost $60k a year in scholarships (to cover living expenses as well as tuition.)

Stats in profile. Submitted in Dec, just rec'd the packet today.

Looking at your profile, it appears that they offered you 112K total, which is roughly 23K less per year than you just suggested. Am I missing something?

Oh! I haven't updated it yet. When they called me a few weeks ago they said they was offering me full tuition, which I just assumed was the cost of tuition. I just got the packet yesterday, and that said what they were actually offering me was tuition plus living expenses.

Holy cow! Are you sure? I only ask because this is the first I've heard of anything that HUGE.

Regardless, congrats! :wink:

Thanks!! I was thinking of withdrawing from there before I got the packet, but it's awfully hard to turn down going to law school completely free! :)

That is a lot of money. I haven't ever seen a school go so far over tuition before, either. That's gotta make you feel good. Congrats!

Not kidding. :D

I called the admissions office to clarify - the way it was worded in the merit award letter was a bit strange, but they confirmed that it is a little under $60k total per year. A very tempting offer, especially since my SO is from the midwest (and would love it if we moved back there...)

Best of luck to those still waiting - hopefully they have a few more of these large awards to hand out to you! :mrgreen:
