Congrats on your acceptances! Just a heads up, some folks were able to see their scholarship amount at the bottom of the W&L status checker, might want to give it a look. Best of luck to you!

Did you negotiate or ask for the stipend increase at Dickinson, or did they increase on their own, out of the blue? Thanks man, and congrats on a great cycle!

BTW, it is $15k total. $2500/semester for all 3 years

The original stipend was given out of the blue. Then, I went to an open house and talked with them about my financial situation. The next Monday, they emailed saying it was increased to 8k each year.

Thanks. It's for Dickinson, not Penn State Law, correct? Congrats again on doing so well on the LSAT and having a great cycle so far!

Congrats on your cycle! Looks like we'll both be a Dickinson next year. Not at all too private of a question, the more information people have when applying, the better! My stipend is 6k per year. I was pretty much decided on Dickinson once I got that email. Visiting the school just solidified it. I really liked the area and the size of the school.
