Just broswing LSN data:
One person: Complete on 1/28. In on 3/13. Scholarship info on 3/26
Another person: scholarship info on 3/20 (looks to have also applied late).
Another person: 3/21 for scholarship info.
Another: Complete 12/1, in 2/10, scholarship 3/19
A bunch of others last updated CU 9-10 months ago, which would be, depending on how LSN does their updates, late-March, early- April. My assumption is, most of those updates were for scholarship info.
Also, looking at last yr, it appears only 1 full ride (in state) was reported at CU on LSN. It looked to be a split of either $32,000 for 3 yrs (around 1/2 off) or $6,000 (for one, then in state?)
One person: In on 12/19, with full ride (nice!)
Another: In on Xmas eve with money ($42,000/3yrs)
Another: Complete 1/31, In 4/22, Scholarship 4/28 ($30,000/3yrs)
Another: In on 12/26, scholarship info same day ($40,000)
Another: In on 12/28, scholarship info next day ($31,000)
Another: In on 3/17, scholarship info same day ($40,000)
Looks like scholarships came the same day (or around the same day) as admits. Also looked like admits came a bit quicker this yr. Money looked to be up as well. Few more full rides reported.
Looks like they did the same as 2008. Scholarship info around the same time.
Same, money appears to be a bit less this time, or maybe people around this time reported more by the yr instead of the total?
Assuming there is enough data here, all I got out of doing this is that it appears that things are changing in the CU admit office. Scholarship info isn't sent with admit packets, and, even if you include the idea of self selection, it appears that scholarship money did decrease. I mean, you'd still see those $90,000 scholarship people in 2009, I'd assume, if things did not change. Really not sure what to make of these points, though. Is scholarship money drying up, being reappropriated into other areas of CU Law, being more widely distributed to CU Law admits or something else?
Of course, with LSN, that's a big assumption.
