Travel Stipends for Cali Schools

Postby Finnick » Fri Mar 21, 2014 1:32 pm

I'm on the east coast and hoping to check out some of the California law schools. I was wondering if anyone had any advice about securing some travel stipends from schools there? Pepperdine offered me $400 but only if I matriculate (any chance at getting the stipulation removed?). It'd be nice to get a few other stipends to offset the cost of the trip. Would it be worth throwing in a couple apps at lower ranked schools (Case Western, USD, etc.) just to try for a stipend to visit? If I'm on the waitlist at a school, will they consider giving me a stipen...or are those only given to admitted students? Any advice is appreciated..

I honestly don't see this happening unless you're like, the best applicant ever.

I went ahead and asked the schools. Still waiting to hear back from a few others.

For future reference:
Pacific- No
Western- one night of hotel
Golden Gate- partial reimbursement for various events
UC Irvine-Yes
Whittier- 1/2 off first deposit
UC Hastings-Possibly
Santa Clara-possibly
Pepperdine-$400, if matriculating (won't remove stipulation)
Loyola-$300
Cal Western-yes
La Verne-no
