Received $10k/yr from Vandy, and I found out that they will look at your other offers and possibly raise your aid package. I'm in the process of getting them my info right now, I'll let everyone know how it goes.

jake, i read on one of these threads somewhere that ucla requires copies of mine/parents income taxes, a resume and a letter from my employer of my end date? did you send any of these things? i did my app like a month ago, but haven't sent in any of these yet. do you think that could be delaying it? if i haven't heard of any grants, do you think it's too late and that it means i'm not getting anything?
They sent me an email detailing my financial aid package a few weeks back that included a 5500 a year grant.....I think its actually a need based grant but I have no idea. I hope I am still considered for more aid...
I haven't heard anything yet either, but I'm also a later Need-Accesser...
Most of the people on LSN that got those nice scholarships have better numbers that me. I just read this thread and now I'm kind of nervious...
at the risk of being captain obvious, any school (w/ the possible exceptions of H, Y, or S) will adjust financial aid. its just a matter of what offers you bring to the table. not sure what the point of anecdotal evidence is.
Already got one response...
"I just wanted you to know that we will review your request and
hopefully be able to increase your offer as soon as more of our committed
monies are returned to us. We would love to have you join our class and
really look forward to seeing you during our March Preview Day."
That's great! I'm very optimistic.
Quotewell, unfortunately it didn't at utah <lol> got my much-expected el rejecto
I'm sorry to hear that. I think the U missed a good chance with you... anyway I visited the law school the other day and was very very disappointed. The tour was nice but as I visited the exercise facilities on campus I was treated with rude-ness that I wasn't accustomed to at my undergrad. Also the law school building itself is very dreary and unkempt. The student reading room looked like a dirty common area in a college dorm. Very messy and gloomy. Same goes for the law library. I am sure one can still get a top legal education there, it would just be a depressing environment to study in for 3 years.
