** Scholarships are per year**
I have no idea how things will go this cycle, so I'm praying for the best.
All apps sent in December and January.
Unsolicited fee waivers from NYU, U Penn, Duke, U Michigan, Emory, Vandy, Notre Dame
PSA: ALWAYS NEGOTIATE YOUR SCHOLARSHIP. All they can tell you is no, you have nothing to loss. (Negotiate until they tell you that's their final offer! BE BOLD!)
I can't believe it, they got back to me so quick. This was my top choice last admissions cycle so I'm very happy about this. God is great!!
I'm so happy! This is such a change of pace from last admissions cycle. To be transparent, I applied very late last cycle and with a low lsat score, and got rejected from every school I applied too. Now, these schools are getting back to me with acceptances quick and with scholarships. God has changed the script on my story and He can do the same for you. Just trust Him!
** Original offer was $40,000 a year. After negotiating they raised it to $50,000.
1/14 - I'm still torn about whether or not I should apply to more schools. I want to stay close to home, but I don't want to look back and feel like I limited myself due to location. I added Penn State and U Michigan. U Michigan sent me a fee waiver and a large packet in the mail so I felt like it was necessary to apply. Any more advice is very welcomed.
Accepted: 1/23 Full tuition! Thank you Jesus!
*After negotiating they offered me a $3,000 stipend and before the deposit deadline they increased it to $5,000
WAITLIST: 4/26 - After months of being under review they finally got back to me with a spot on the waitlist. Even though this isn't an acceptance, I'm thrilled to even be considered!
** They initially offered me $15,000 a year. But they raised it to $20,000 after sending a negation email. Final offer
Waitlist reject: 5/1
** I never wrote a letter of continued interest, so I'm not sure if this rejection is on me. However, I've decided to attend Rutgers with a great scholarship and I'm happy with my decision.
**Initially they offered me $20,000 a year. However, after negotiating twice, they raised it to $35,000 a year.
** For some reason they offered me no money at first. But after negotiating they offered me $25,000 a year.
