Does anyone know if these scholarships have strings attached?

*Maintaining a specific gpa or rank for example?

I'm pretty sure someone said they do... anyone who has the letter in front of them care to respond?

100%-top 40%
80%-top 50%
55%-top 65%
below-0%

If you bring your cume back up to those levels during 2L, it will be restored to that amount for 3L.

So nobody here recieved a full? It seems Prince is the highest named scholarship and comes pretty short of a full. Does anyone know if it is possible to negotiate for a full tuition?

There it is. Below top 40% isn't a terrible stipulation, although I'll wait to see all the details before making any judgements.

I don't think they have a single scholarship that amounts to full tuition. They seem to give out multiple scholarships that amount to a free ride. I don't know about stipends.

The highest scholly is the Carswell, and then everything else is added on top.

so dreman, while you're here, what can you say to us about BLS that we don't already know? can you alleviate concerns about section stacking and scholarship stipulations and the like?

In terms of section stacking-I can tell you that most of the people in every section have scholarships, but A LOT of those people have $5-10K a year schollys. So, there are obviously going to be a lot of people each year losing scholarship money. I know people with full scholly in each section. I also have heard the same rumors about Cardozo.
In terms of general BLS knowledge-the area is awesome

I was leaning towards Cardozo, told BLS that Cardozo had more of what I wanted (patent classes, location, etc, better reputation). I said I would love to come to Brooklyn, but at this point my commute to Cardozo to doable, but to Brooklyn its not, so make it worth my while-in nicer terms. And I said how much I loved the school.
