+1 since 2/25

Sucks if there's no movement this week because they are on Spring Break next week.

Generic20101L: I am in the same boat as you. I did not write them yet but I need some money to be convinced to go there. I feel as ppl withdraw from the school they will free scholly money up and can be offered to others? What you think?

I got scholarship info a week after in a small envelope.

Heya,
Question to all those who were accepted at Hofstra. Did eveyone's app package contain a hand written letter from an admissions' person? I know I saw one other person who said they had this but what about the rest of you all?

I got the same thing. I agree, I think that's just something Hofstra does for everyone.

theres no way you get rejected with those numbers IMO. I was just accepted a week after being complete with a 162/3.47 on 3/18, so if you don't get in i'd be shocked for one. Like others said before, if i don't get a good amount of money from hofstra, im withdrawing based on a nice scholarship from st. johns. I hope this doesnt sound too pompous for those of you that are really hoping to attend hofstra. Its a very nice school, and I hate when the people with 165+ act like whatever schools that isnt t14 is too good for them

As someone who was accepted with lower numbers and will probably be attending Hofstra unless something changes (granted, I haven't heard back from even half of my schools yet, so...), I don't take offense. You're making a claim based on numbers, sort of like a loan officer.

got a full scholarship from Hofstra and am still waiting on cardozo/st. johns before I make my final decision. I am leaning towards Hofstra because I don't want to bury myself in debt but I'm nervous that I would have to stay top 40% of the class. How hard will that be? If I'm not top 40 does that mean I get $0 after 1L? Isn't anyone else worried about this?
