how long did it take you to get your scholarship info?? We have similar numbers, I hopes I get something. Does anybody know if Iowa is generous with schollys or is it like full ride or nothing?


About 2 weeks. Showed up just in a regular envelope. Iowa can be somewhat generous from what I gather.

sweet! Me and you are in the same boat with UMN too! Would you take UMN with little or no money over Iowa full ride?



right now ND>the rest

Can I have your Iowa full ride then please?

Yeah, I think it is sadly generic. You should have gotten money by now because, correct me if I am wrong, but you received a decision before I did.

I was accepted on 12/15, the admissions lady told me it takes 2 weeks or more for scholarship information. When were you accepted?

Good question.

At first I thought I had the same offer, but mine is a Law Opportunity Fellowship and I can't see any info about the class rank requirement. (??)

From what I've researched, residency is pretty easy to get @ UI by the second year.

Tight. The difference between res and non-res tuition is kinda huge.

Mine says it pretty clearly on the scholarship letter that you have to stay in the top third. Mine is definitely called something different, anyway.

not sure what you found in your research but the only ways I know of to get in state res while a student in Iowa is to be half time or less for 12 months or to get a RA position. This is based on Iowa law.

If you did find out something else please share as it would help a lot of people

Wow, I stand corrected. I know I read something re: gaining residency by the 2nd year, but now I can't find it... here's what TLS says about Iowa for residency:

IOWA: Iowa is another state where it is difficult to petition for residency. In addition to "domiciling" for 12 months in the Hawkeye State, the University of Iowa's website states that "certain things have probative value" (in other words, no guarantees) to substantiate a claim to residency: Reliance upon Iowa resources for financial support, acceptance of an offer of permanent employment in Iowa. The website goes out of its way to explain that things which often pass for a commitment to residency in other states--paying state income taxes, voting in Iowa elections, registering one's vehicle in Iowa--will not be sufficient for purposes of gaining in-state tuition. Thus, it might be possible for an incoming 3L who has accepted a position with an Iowa-based firm to get residency for their final year, but that seems to be about it.


Sorry to get our hopes up there (I'll still look around a bit more to see if I can find what I thought I originally saw--but I'm guessing I probably mixed up Iowa with another school I was researching).

No problem. Iowa is not impossible to get residency with but I just wanted to make sure people know that it is not like Florida or California where you can get residency after living there for one year.

Meant to post this link yesterday, but I was just getting off of 26 hours of traveling and was way to tired.

http://registrar.uiowa.edu/TuitionandFees/Residency/tabid/94/Default.aspx

This has a good FAQ on how Iowa determines residency for anyone who wants more information on it.

Woah!

Just learned that I've been given a full ride! A combination of tuition grants, RA grants and an RA position. That definitely puts Iowa at the top of my list so far!
