UPenn and I have been talking, they basically said they're interested and they'll let me know how much money they can offer me/i could get from need-based, and then I say whether I'm still interested or not. The need-based money I qualify for would be $25,000 spread out over three years.

6/22: Cornell offered me $10,000/year I know it's low but wow!

I am impressed! I have almost exactly the same numbers. What do you think did it for you? GPA?

Thank you! I'm really not sure. Since they mostly make decisions off of lsat/gpa, I guess it was the gpa. But I think that my personal statement and LOCIs definitely helped. Also just not being afraid to reach out, like with scholarships, is key there... I did get the waitlist offers after updating my resume, so maybe that/just keeping yourself in their mind did something. Good luck with your cycle!
