The amount was lower than expected but I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that it didn't seem to come with any renewal conditions besides filing "appropriate paperwork in a timely manner".
~3.4 GPA and LSAT in the high 160s
I have a special place in my heart for San Diego (the city) so this is making things interesting.
Do you guys think conditional scholarships that require you to stay in top 30% or 25% are worth the risk? If you don't make top 30% then you are screwed.. You lose all scholarship money AND your job prospects go down the drain at the same time. I guess it will motivate you to study harder knowing that tens and thousands of dollars are on the line.. but it just seems like it will add more stress to the law school experience.
Did the scholly letter say it was renewable, or simply that you'd be considered for future scholarships on the basis of your merits and achievements?
It explicitly says that it is renewable for the remaining two years provided that I "continue to establish financial need" and that I "file the appropriate paperwork in a timely manner". Nothing about merits or achievements.
this sounds like need based aid...
"maintain financial need"
