Does anyone know if there's much scholarship/aid for international students?.. and whether I need to fill any forms to be considered for them?
the needaccess stuff is only for US citizens right?

Here it is: http://www.dddreamland.com


Don't want to be a buzzkill, but unless its phrased as a LOCI they probably won't care. They haven't found the time to send a one line response to our emails (or even generic response), so they won't have time to look at your blog. Every applicant has their own impressive hobbies and what-not, if you mentioned it in your PS I would just leave it at that and not risk annoying them. It's a nice blog and all, but unless you just won some award for it, I just wouldn't do it... just my $.02 though.


Cheers, exactly why I asked. Probably should've included it on the resume under the personal interests section. Let's hope we get some (good) news soon!

I'd say we should be seeing a wave of decisions soon. The initial deposit deadline just passed for most, if not all schools.

YEA! I'm gonna attend for sure.. I've been looking at what ppl say about Davis and it sounds great.

btw.. does anyone know how to pay the seat deposit online??
on the admitted students website, theres a link that says "Accepting the offer" and then when I click on it, it just expands with some instructions but I can't see any other links for me to enter my card info etc..

Do i have to wait a few days before it shows up.. because the website doesnt show my student ID number either.. I was thinking it might have something to do with that and that they need a few more days to process it...

You should click "accepting the offer" then on the bottom right it has the 2 deposits in the box, click the "pay me" or w/e button for the first deposit.

Congrats!

I'm feeling good about next week. This late in the cycle, they seem to dole decisions out a little more deliberately.

I am not quite sure yet. I received a full tuition, 1st year books, and summer abroad scholarship to UOP McGeorge. I am still contemplating the McGeorge offer because I am currently living back in Sacramento, and I would eventually like to practice here. The idea of graduating debt free is certainly enticing! Then I have been waitlisted at Columbia, Michigan, UCLA, Duke, and USC, so i guess i will have to see what the summer months bring.

I should also mention that my 165 LSAT score is a retake. My first score was a 160. I sent in an addendum, explaining the retake, with my initial application.

Full tuition is certainly enticing. Is there a GPA / class rank requirement attached to the scholarship?

Yes. GPA in top 1/3 of the class.

Smreamer..... Your post is soooooooooo encouraging. :D Almost numbers twin. 159/165 - 3.67
They also asked me to write an addendum explaining my retake as well.

Nobody from Davis is going to give you a terribly unbalanced opinion of the situation, so take me with a grain of salt, but... Go to Davis. McGeorge flashes between T2 and T3, and even in Sac (the only market where it can possibly claim to do well) its graduates are always behind UCD grads in line for the same jobs. I had a similar choice, also want to be in Sac, went with Davis and haven't looked back.

As nice as Sac is too, with the economy being what it is you want as many choices as possible. UCD puts SF, LA and SD on the table. McGeorge... not so much.

For anyone having trouble paying the deposit, it took me a while to find it too.
Log in to the admitted students site, then click the "response" or "respond" link. Then you should have the accepting/rejecting offer links.

Accepted. 3.7/161 URM. No financial aid info in the pdf, though? Oh well I guess I have to wait for regular mail. Good luck to all those still waiting. I'm pretty sure I am going to withdraw, so hopefully my spot goes to someone who really wants it!

In as of yesterday!! I'm pumped. I sent my app 12/28, went complete 1/13, and got my decision yesterday.

There's a way you can view your financial aid info online through the "admitted students" section. Can't remember exactly how, but I remember that it's there.

99% sure I'm going to be at USC. I was at Davis for a year...wasn't my kind of town. Granted I was there my freshman year so I'm sure there is a lot that I missed out on for the subsequent 3 years. It is a really nice campus though...

It would be great if accepted students could post their stats. Rad, mind sharing yours?
