Yes. I was originally offered a $15,000 scholarship for only my first year. I e-mailed them a couple weeks ago and just today I had a new letter in my mailbox making my scholarship renewable for my 2nd and 3rd years as long as I stay in the top 50%. I've read of people trying to get rid of the top 33%/50% requirements, but I was honestly quite thrilled about saving another $30,000 (assuming I will stay in the top 50%). USD is my only acceptance so far (on 4 WLs, ughh) so with this new amount of money I'm definitely seriously thinking about attending next year (I had been contemplating taking a year off to retake the LSAT and reapply). I'm very excited for ASD in a few weeks! :lol:

Random question: Why does it sometimes not say "Edited a total of 1 times"

Like, you said that you edited it, but it doesn't say that on my end. Is it because you edited, say, within 1 minute after posting?

it only makes a note that you edited it if someone has already responded in the thread after your post

I have given up on waiting and dug my LSAT books out of the closet. I plan on riding out the waitlist, which seems like my inevitable fate given the rest of my cycle.

There is a major difference among the CA schools that I've applied to.
Santa Clara has an April 1st deposit date and won't budge on that.
Meanwhile, USD & UC Davis are going to give me a decision in ... maybe the summer.

didn't work for me, but as others have posted it works for some people. i got 25k/year with the 33% requirement. i wrote showing my 30k/year offer, with no gpa stipulation, from a t-25 school. i simply asked if they would consider raising my offer and lowering the gpa requirement. no luck either way. oh well i guess! good luck to you!

hey, does anyone know how international students are supposed to fill out the FAFSA??
We need to submit the FAFSA to be considered for any scholarship at all right... but i can't fill out the FAFSA without an SSN. I could try applying for an SSN as an international student, but the process is complicated.. :(

According to the LSN timeline from last year, there should be a few more acceptances handed out this week before the first week or so in April... where the decisions will more likely be WL/Rejections.

This is especially true for people in my numbers ranges.
