I am heading to Seattle U. Going to go PT, so I am taking crimlaw this summer! I am excited, but nervous at the same time.

Some of my schools have asked for an RSVP for the student and the number of guests they are bringing. So I assume that they expect people to bring guests with them.

I am going to forget about my disappointing LSAT scores and head to Seattle U.

I am going to Seattle U as well.

Mine took a week from when they received the letter (I sent it certified mail so that I knew when they got it).

I was reading the scholarship negotiation thread, and had never really thought about this.  Now I think I'll give it a shot.  I'm considering two part-time programs and have been accepted to 3 peer full-time schools with scholarships ranging from $12,000-$20,000/yr.  The part-time programs have not offered me scholarships up to now, so I'm guessing they won't at this point. Just wondering if anyone has had success negotiating with part-time schools, since I know most schools don't give out money for part-time students.  Any success stories?

The scholarship that I negotiated was for a part time program. It was the only part time program that I applied to and they awarded me a scholarship based on the awards I received to attend a full time program.

The above posts are encouraging...

I'm in a similar boat.  But a question:  If you have full rides and half-tuition offers from schools that are significantly lower ranked than the school you are writing to, is it still worthwhile to mention these offers in your letter?

Thanks.

I did not mention every offer because I have applied to quite a few schools. I mentioned the significant offers that I received from schools ranked about the one that I wanted the scholarship from and the offers of full tuition from schools ranked lower.

Wow congrats!  You've inspired me to try the same.

Good luck!

Thanks for all of your help. It worked. I got offered a comparable scholarship from the school I would really like to attend. :)
