ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

Feel free to PM (daisrt) with questions. I could have been more aggressive with the scholarship negotiations, so that was my fault. I started negotiating pretty late in the game.

I started out with no merit aid from GULC despite asking a couple times. Got bumped up to 10k/year on my third ask. Got denied for an increase another time, and then eventually bumped to 15k/year when they found out I was double deposited.

Northwestern offered me 15k/year off the waitlist, but denied my request for increased aid.

Re: Northwestern wait list- I submitted a LOCI before being waitlisted. After the waitlist I did the online interview but not did submit another LOCI. I was offered a spot a week later.

My recommendation to people who haven't maxed out their LSAT tries/are fresh out of college- do yourself a favor and retake the LSAT/experience the working world and life in general before heading to law school. If I hadn't maxed out my 3x/2 year LSAT takes I would have taken it again in a heartbeat.
