Not at all in poor tasdte. They understand that you are probably not wealthy and that you could use the money--even if only to maximize your application choices. An email cannot hurt, a phone call (to an admissions officer, not a staff member) is better.

Not well known, but hardly hidden, is the fact that Brooklyn Law does not charge an application fee at all, and that some other schools waive their fee if you apply on-line (less work for the clerical staff).

Visit the schools---why waste another year?

My friend in at BLS too with similar offer.
She notes that at 40% you keep full award and at 50% you get 55%(?) of it. There's another, lower level, too, you have to be in bottom third to lose it all.
Sliding scale of re-award to reduce the harshness of an  all-or-nothing system. Doesn't eliminate, but minimizes debt--go for the money...

Scheck is at cardozo but rumor is he teaches very few students --pretty much all 3rd year and most of 'his' lectures are by guests.(And what if he goes on leave in "your" access year?)

If that's why you're picking a school, it's like hoping you'll get Dershowitz at harvard--there's a chance, but not a good one.

Brooklyn has some clinic with the Holland/Knight firm that's aslo doing interesting stuff.

Make the phone call for more money--and revisit each school.

Raven...You are unreasonably harsh. Why would Bloomberg News shill for Brooklyn Law School?
Bloomberg wasn't reporting a phenomenon evidenced at one school but throughout a range of them. And the Career Center at Brooklyn was used to illustrate the story.
