Thanks, i plan to begin a multi-tiered campaign to aquire and boost scholarships in the near future.
I am trying to find a balance between cost, prestige, and location (as i am sure many of us are). Who knows what may come of it. Good luck to you all.

Yeah, I need to withdraw from IU-B too. I thought it might seem rude to do it the same day though. I didn't want to hurt their feelings.
Perhaps this will mean i might be able to bargain for some $
, with so many withdrawing so early. From the look of things on LSN, it looks like i just slightly missed the LSAT barrier for initial scholarships. Congrats on your other acceptances, i'm still hoping for a few more of my own.

This has been very interesting to me. I admit I am a novice when it comes to understanding the law job hunt, etc. I guess i am trying to understand what 2000 billable hours amounts to in actual work time. It was stated earlier that <2000 was considered lifestyle friendly.
I have a family member who has a friend at a big national firm in Boston, and so i have been looking into them these last few weeks to try to get a picture in my head about what i can expect after school at a pretty large firm. The state a 1900 hour minimum, and give 4 wks paid vacation, so in my mind 1900 divided by 48 wks = about 40 hours a week. Obviously there has to a fair amount of non billable hours that still needs to be factored in.
Does anyone have any ideas about what kind of total work hours this might signify?
Thanks so much.

Thanks everyone. Your thoughts have been enlightening. I have applied to GMU (they responded to my request for a fee waiver and i like the look of their program). As i have applied to 22 schools already, i decided that i would only continue if i got waivers so my kid doesn't go without clothes...

Got my Acceptance from U. Conn today! This is my highest ranked acceptance to date and the most exciting so far. There was nothing about scholarships in my letter (i am hoping to get one, but we'll see), does anyone know if UConn sends them later or are they usually included with the acceptance?

I got one too. 3.76/163. Just curious, has anyone requested a fee waiver and got a response?

I got in EA over the holiday w/ $14,000. Does anyone know if this is just first year? and if so, is it renewable? my letter was pretty inexplicit, unlike my Temple response.
Good luck to you all.

I am considering applying to both, or either, of these schools. I am interested to hear what any of you who have visited, heard about, or studied there have to say about the differences. Tuition is not even close in cost, and if you have info about who gives more money out that would be helpful. USNWR rankings are similar.
I am interested in the non-patent IP and commercial law areas of study.
