I have some C&F liabilities (pretty long criminal record, 3 yrs recovered drug addict). I was forthcoming about everything so we'll see.
1/10/19 - Received an invitation from the Dean of Admissions @ Cardozo to come for an interview with him
1/15/19 - Admitted to Rutgers via email with $23k/yr scholarship included in the email
1/22/19 - Admitted to Brooklyn via email with $43k/yr scholarship included in the email
1/30/19 - Admitted to Cardozo via email with $35k/yr scholarship included in the email. I am going to try negotiating with them to get a more generous offer.
2/1/19 - Admitted to Seton Hall via status checker with $40k/yr Chancellor's scholarship. Not sure of the stipulations, awaiting the acceptance packet.
2/22/19 - Seton Hall upped my scholarship by $15k after I asked them for more $$. Still waiting to hear back from Brooklyn and Cardozo vis a vis scholarship increases.
3/6/19 - Brooklyn emailed me back declining to increase my scholarship.
3/7/19 - St. John's FINALLY made some kind of decision, emailing me today to let me know that I've been wait listed. I find this pretty amusing, considering my stats should presumably be worth a sizable scholarship there. The only reason why they'd waitlist me is my criminal record, which tells me that they're very regressive philosophically and certainly not an institution that I'd want to attend.
