Wake just dropped an 18,000/year scholarship on me today. I have to let them know by Monday. Considering 35,000/year at Seton Hall (NJ) where I can live at home. Not sure what to do. Need Help.

Wake places much better in its market than seton does in seton's market.

Although, if you did take the 35k, maybe that 18k would go to me and we'd all be happy! :)

Under review since 2/15. Apparently my file is at the director's house? They couldn't ballpark when I should hear back, so they're going to call me Monday to tell me...

I feel like they lost my file.

Ahh so wake gave me a 25k/ year renewable but until that moment I'd been planning to go to Emory. I'm indifferent to either. I really want to do trademarks at Big Law. I already have the money for emory (tuition, COL, everything) but if my job prospects will be virtually the same obviously it would be smarter to take the money and run.

Gratz man. I think people take this stuff for granted too often.

Sometimes you just gotta remember to think: Holy shit, I did it.

This may not be a good place to put this, but.......

I was offered the 18k/year scholly, so that put's Wake at nearly 40k/year

I'm also instate at UF so it puts it about 35k/year

Where should I go?

$18k renewable for me on Friday--I've committed via email and will be sending in my deposit tomorrow! :mrgreen: SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!

I'll be putting my $ from W&L back in the pot and taking my name of the UNC waitlist ASAP. Never wanted to wear that nasty baby blue color anyway!

Now I just have to keep my employer in the dark for a few months so they don't can me :shock:

Did anyone manage to get them to drop the top 2/3 of the class requirement on their scholarship? Just curious as I can't seem to find anyone who has been successful with this.

Why would they do this/what would be the rationale? Just curious...

Same reason that other schools are willing to do it. Leverage by the student. If a student has other comparable offers, sometimes schools will up their scholarship offer in order to lure the student, or, alternatively, they will lower/drop a GPA/class rank requirement attached to the scholarship in order to make it more enticing.

I'm fine with the being in the top 2/3s thats more lenient than my other scholarships, top 1/2 and top 1/3 for example.

Sending in the seat deposit tomorrow :-)

agreed. only 50% of people get schollies, so being in top 66% is pretty fair. And if you can't maintain that, you get to keep half.

I just get the feeling that they are expecting us to keep the scholly. Its about the best stipulation there is (other than no stipulation).

So far this cycle, Wake has been notorious for lack of negotiation. I would find it hard to believe they'd remove that stipulation with out serious leverage.

I feel that if I can't manage to stay in the top 2/3's of the class, then perhaps I don't belong in law school.
