Someone on LSN posted a $64K Chicago scholarship yesterday. That seems to be the same amount as many of the scholarships last year.

He says he's from Chicago; maybe they sent out some awards in the mail on Friday. I'd be interested to know if he's also applying for need-based aid because it seems that may delay the process…

Seems like my award was mailed out Friday as well. I am also applying for need-based aid and they said that info would come "in Spring."

EDIT: I misspoke, LOAN info would come in the spring. I think the 64K is need and merit in totality.

Congrats on the scholarship!

I got offered 50k + 10k contingent PI. Do you think I can negotiate up to 64K with the Darrow? What's the consensus method, mail, e-mail?

Me too! I'm way excited. Let me know if they bump it up to $64K - I might try a similar tactic.

I would recommend email (or phone call?), but I'm probably not the right person to ask. I tried in vain to get my scholarship at Michigan improved.

Wow, congratulations everyone!

On a side note, I'm glad that people are posting offers in this thread. The accepted today thread is getting ridiculous...
