UPDATE- 12/28, Dean called to offer full tuition! It's $51k/yr



Email from admissions on 12/18, scholarship is $24,500/yr, contingent on maintaining a 2.3 GPA.

Dean called me a day later to congratulate and talk about visiting campus.

Update: scholarship reconsideration came back, on 1/31 (request sent on 1/3). They bumped it up to $40,500/yr...same GPA contingency.


Email on 12/20, with scholarship info. Although I am not a TX resident, they offered an in-state tuition waiver, which is about $15k/yr. I also received a Dean's Schol. for another $15k/yr.

The scholarships are unconditional, as long as I am in good academic standing with the Law Center.


Arizona State

Phone call from the Dean on 1/5, told me I was accepted. An email followed up with the scholarship amount, which they asked to keep confidential.



Email on 1/16 with scholarship information. $22,750/yr, so long as I stay in good academic standing. Illinois does not do GPA conditional scholarships



Email on 1/17, scholarship information in the acceptance email. $30,000 a year, so long as I stay in good academic standing (2.0 GPA).



Email on 1/19, just an acceptance email. No scholarship information included yet. I've heard that email follows up after a few days.

Update: scholarship email on 1/24. They asked that it be kept confidential, but I'll just say I am very happy with the offer. Contingent on a 2.0 GPA (good academic standing)



Accepted on 1/23. Saw it on status checker, waiting on email and scholarship notification.



Accepted on 1/23. Email notifying me of status change, checked my status and saw I was admitted. No info on scholarships in the status checker or email yet.

Update: scholarship email on 2/1. $29k a year, which is a full ride for out of state!


Ohio State

Accepted on 1/30, scholarship email came on 2/9 and it was a full ride! 1st year is out of state, 2nd and 3rd years are for in state. They say it's easy and almost everyone at the school gets residency if they want it, but I've heard it's not as easy as they make it out to be. Who knows, I'll ask them.

Decided to retake my LSAT in December in hopes of getting a few more points to help with scholarship $$. I applied to ASU and U of Illinois before deciding to retake. I emailed both about my intentions. ASU is waiting to process my application until they get my second score, Illinois said they wouldn't necessarily wait to process it but if they didn't get to it until after the Dec. score came in, then it would just shake out that way. If they process it before the score comes back, I suppose I can just come back to them with my second score and use it to negotiate. Every other school has been applied to with the intention to take the Dec. LSAT in the application.
