I think the SIL refers to all scholarships, and anyone under consideration had it in the acceptance email. That being said, I would definitely try and use the Minnesota $ to leverage them. You never know.


Yes, I think SIL is a general way of saying "We are thinking about giving you money." I don't think you should assume you aren't getting anything though. You should write them a polite letter explaining the importance of financial considerations and saying you have x amount from Minnesota. You may have to wait until they see who is accepting money offers first though. Good luck.


I was digging through a WUSTL thread from a couple years ago and found the following conversation:

just a girl wrote:Did you get the Scholars in Law award, egrubs?


egrubs wrote:Yeah, I did. I think that's the name they're giving to all of their $25,000; $30,000; and $39,700 scholarships. It's at least the name they give to their $30,000 and $39,700 scholarships.


Nobody confirmed his idea, so it could have been pure conjecture. And even if he was correct then, they could have begun using that name for all scholarships since then.

Thanks cubswin. Perhaps there is hope I get some type of money.

For some people updated complete dates means a decision is on its way for others it hasn't meant anything.

Edited: Deleted info on stipend, better answers below.

IIRC, it was 100 miles or so. You CAN live in MO and still get reimbursed as long as you don't live that close.


+1 on the 100 miles

I remember reading somewhere on this thread that it has to be at least 100 miles. I wish I could verify this. Hth

HAHA you can say that every time, I'm cool with it. My pup is the cutest though, I say that whenever I see her too! :lol: Once we both get amazing SIL offers and end up in WUSTL, you can meet her!

They also stated that they require receipts, so I'm not sure if mileage will be reimbursed or just gas, arline, hotel, rental car, etc. since they have a receipt.

Someone could email and ask if they reimburse mileage.


It's mileage. I got a packet with a parking pass and info on the ASW yesterday, the reimbursement is spelled out in a letter with a standard university expense sheet attached.

How long did it take for you to get the USB packet? I was admitted a month ago, still haven't received anything.

you're really not missing out on anything. noone has received any scholarship packages. that's about the only important thing to expect in the mail from admissions.
