AZ
Sunday, December 01 2019 at 10:25 PM

$87K is a full ride to U AZ, and would be half at AZ State...did you mis label, or do they negotiate well? Im thinking U AZ might be one of the best schools to offer me full tuition, based on statistics...we shall see. Withdraw places you wont end up going so that money can get shifted to other applicants.

Monday, September 30 2019 at 02:31 PM

Hey 2ndCareer, I received my offer without negotiation. I won't be withdrawing from any schools until I make my decision, due to negotiations and external considerations.

In at UC Boulder 1/10/2020

1/22/19 Scholarship at UC Boulder
Monday, September 30 2019 at 02:31 PM

Forgot to write the update. Full tuition! For the first year...... And then it drops to 10k per year. What the heck is that? I will likely withdraw because of that nonsense.

1/24/2020 waitlisted at ASU

1/29/2020
Monday, September 30 2019 at 02:31 PM

An email and a phone call gets my scholarship at UC Boulder +$10k to Full/15/15. That's approx. a half scholarship for year two and three with additional "on-top" scholarships available. Definitely an interesting structure they are doing.

1/29/2020 - Wisconsin scholarship - Full

Huzzah, today is scholarship day apparently. Full ride at Wisconsin with the Law-in-Action award (44k/yr)

2/10/2020 Scholarship at LLS
Monday, September 30 2019 at 02:31 PM

Withdrawn from UC Boulder. Super sad about it, I love Colorado. But they were not budging off of their very weird Full / half / half scholarship situation.

2/27/2020
Monday, September 30 2019 at 02:31 PM

Rejected at Harvard. Womp Womp.

Stanford "Decision rendered" 3/3/2020
Monday, September 30 2019 at 02:31 PM

Since I wasn't interviewed, I expect this will be a "Thanks but no thanks" letter. =p

In at UCLA, no Epstein
Monday, September 30 2019 at 02:31 PM

In a "miraculous" turn of events, my application gets accepted the day after I go on a campus tour and meet with the Dean of Admissions. =) This is the top-ranked school I've currently gotten into at #15. I did not get accepted into the Epstein scholarship, unfortunately (their full tuition public interest program).

As expected, rejected at Stanford
