Just got my email, 24k/year. Happy with it, but doesn't make my decision any easier.

Dr. Nick, just out of curiosity, why choose Irvine over WUSTL


Better location, more money, better "feel."

Also just received the SIL award. $26k a year. At this point, I had pretty much stopped thinking about WUSTL, but this does make me reconsider. With 28 from BC, and 30 from both GW and L&C, though, I'm not sure if it's enough to seal the deal.

Does anyone else think this may just be a glitch or a mistake? I was accepted but not considered for any scholarship, just got an email saying I got 60k it makes no sense.

Congratulations to everyone that has received $ today. I hate to come off as bitter, but I am, now that I see so many people with the same/lower #s receiving double my offer.

From what ive seen they let you know in acceptance email if you are being considered for the SIL offer.

Oh ok thanks. I don't see that in my acceptance email so I guess not.


Just thought I should reiterate that I was offered $10K/year just now despite not having that line in my acceptance e-mail. And it's even called the Scholar in Law Award in my offer, so maybe it's just a mistake that the line doesn't show up in our e-mails. Either way-- don't lose hope!

I know, I read that right after posting. I apologize for whining Helm, you deserve it over me without a doubt. Still though, doubling our offers hurts.

Congratulations! The Scholarship Committee has awarded you a Scholar in Law Award, one of the most prestigious scholarships bestowed by the Washington University School of Law to entering students. It is offered to a select group whose academic achievements indicate that they will be outstanding law students and lawyers.



See lsn for details. It's a damn good offer. Enough to turn down NYU? I don't know.

Try not to take it personal. It's not worth grinding your gears over.

yeah, im going to have to decide between this almost full-ride offer and NYU, Penn, or Chi at sticker. I have enough money saved to cover a little less than one year of school at the moment, and my family can probably cover most of the rest. but free $$$ would alleviate so much guilt and make things so much easier for me. and i have no interest in biglaw, so big debt isn't something i can stomach easily....

arhg, too much to think about

Congrats on your offer. That does make the decision a bit more difficult, but I'd still go to NYU in a heartbeat.

Got 11k/yr.

A bit relieved that it's low. I heard they were generous (and 11k IS generous with my 3.34/170) but I don't think that's quite high enough to compel me to move to St. Louis. Will probably still go for a visit. Can't turn down an option just because... at least not until I form my own opinion.

25K/year scholarship via email. Don't think it's enough to sway me from my other options.
