Still NO word about scholarship $$, though they told me via a previous email I was "being considered." If anyone else has received this package yet, do they mention if you got scholarship $$? In other words, am I out of luck, or have they just not decided yet?


Yeah I got that too, nearly gave me a heart attack because I wasn't expecting it but was expecting decisions from BC and Gtown. I just skimmed through it, I will probably give it some more attention tonight.

All I got was a 12 x 14 envelope with the acceptance letter/potential scholarship consideration, and form about reserving my spot. It was the least impressive acceptance package of any school.

First acceptance. Today via email. Not my top choice, but I could live for free due to family in the area, so with a full scholarship I might consider it.

+1 via email. there was no mention of scholarship in the email though. for those of you who got some $$, did it just come in the packet?

Very interested in hearing about scholarships. Already daydreaming about their apartments with balconies.

From what I understand scholarships should either come in one of the two packets we will be receiving, or, they will come independently in a month or so.

For some reason Brooklyn Law makes me think of Jay-Z's new album, which shoots it much higher up my list than it would be otherwise.

Has anyone actually gotten any money yet or just been told they are being considered?

they dont tell you anything about money until march, so it says in the acceptance encyclopedia that they give you.

WHERE IS MINE??? Come on the mail doesn't take this long, I know.


Anyone ever have to go through the history of the USPS? Kinda interesting, but also tedious. They made it because politicians were giving the mail to their supports to dole out and it was creating a monopoly on the campaign info, or something like that.

This is weird to me. My letter was 4 pages long, sure, and there were a few other pages attached. But I didn't get a book... it only cost them a dollar something to mail, not the 6 or 8 bucks I heard mentioned before. The letter told me I was being considered for merit scholarships (and that they'd let me know by mid-March) and invited me to apply for their fellowships. The Sparer Public Interest Fellowship tickles my fancy. But I'm wondering about the discrepancy... did you get a smaller original packet?

Thanks Dreman. If I am accepted, I'll have some questions.

Still waiting for my file to be complete...UGH. I know that my LSDAS report was sent, but it says "still needed" on my status checker.

Just got the acceptance e-mail. Fingers crossed for $$. Not my top choice, but I grew up in Queens and loooove Brooklyn Heights.

Is there anyone who got the email saying their application was complete and under review who DIDN'T get an acceptance soon after? I got that email on Wednesday but I haven't heard anything since then which goes against the trend I've noticed on TLS and LSN.

Got in today via email, applied early December, I will also be curious to see what sort of money they offer (166 / 3.5).

First acceptance, feels good.

Yes, I got the little one first (I got it about 3 weeks ago, a day or so after receiving the acceptance email) and then about two weeks later, got the gigantic one. And really, it is gigantic and ridiculous. Its definitely coming your way! Also, I live within walking distance of BLS, so my delivery times are probably very quick.

You will get a full scholarship, and can negotiate for a stipend...
