lol...this is hte response i got after sending the email about possible scholarships n what not.

Brooklyn Law School would be delighted to see you accept our offer of
admission. We offer educational and career opportunities that could be
greatly beneficial to you. We encourage you to contact our Financial Aid
Office. Perhaps you will qualify for some types of need-based assistance.
Also consider the costs of housing. Brooklyn Law School has offered you
guaranteed campus housing for your first year, which can be a huge benefit.
Aside from the convenience of living only a few blocks from the Law School,
our housing costs are typically well below market rate. If law school
housing is important to you, you should factor in what you might save in
rent at Brooklyn Law. You should consider the entire cost of attendance. We
sincerely hope to see you at Brooklyn Law School this fall!

If you have further questions please do not hesitate to contact me at
(718)780-7906.

Regards,

Andrea Gershwin
Assistant Director of Admissions


Seems like a polite way to tell me there's no way i'm getting a merit scholarship=)
Now that you've visited, what is your impression?  Did you get any feedback re: scholarships?

Wait List / Re: Priority WL at Georgetown

Well, if you don't have a particularly strong interest in GU then maybe you should withdraw as you say. What is it about a large law school that appeals to you? I totally understand not wanting to be out in the sticks as that is the main reason I've only applied to schools in major urban centers. But if Cornell is a better fit for you academically do you think you could stick it out for a couple of years? Have you visited either?

That sounds like some sort of blatant attempt to convince them to withdraw themselves from the GU list, which is totally cool by me :P.

Four more decisions this week (see signature).  Boy I'm getting antsy.

My other option is Cornell, where I'm in, or Northeastern, where I got a big fat scholarship. I'm confused. Technically Cornell is ranked higher than Georgetown, but there's this wierd psychology at play where you want something more if it doesn't want you. Also I like the idea of going to a really, really big law school. And not being stuck in the sticks. And I hate the snow. But I want to do labor law, and Cornell is supposed to be a good place for that. Someone talk some sense into me. I'm debating taking myself off the waitlist to make room for someone else.

If you don't have the time or money for the six week summer program CLEO also offers a free Attitude is Essential workshop.  There will be two this summer: one in Atlanta and one in Los Angeles.  Participants will receive a stipend of up to $250 upon completion and will also be eligible for future scholarship consideration.  The application deadline is April 29, 2005.

I submitted my app. 3/14 and was accepted a week later (with full tuition).  Still waiting to hear back from a bunch of schools though.

Why do you think it's underrated?

I"m kind of surprised as I was expecting a ding this late in the game, but I'm not complaining. 

EDIT: according to the letter it's actually the Preferred Waiting List

I'm proudly out with a nicely toned stomach (I'm a woman).  It used to be really pronoounced when I was younger and I was self-consscious about it because it seemed that the only people with outies were infants.  It has receded a bit and now my navel is pierced so I love it.  ;)

An acceptance with full tuition from St. John's (one week turnaround).  Way to many pending :(

At least I'm off to a good start.
