No $$$ at St. John's...
« on: February 23, 2005, 12:15:11 PM »
I got my official acceptance letter today, and was pretty disappointed that there was no mention of any $$$.  They take the higher LSAT score, so I was pretty sure with a 162 they would give me a little money.  I know I'm looking a gift horse in the mouth on this, but I really can't afford to go there without money.  :(

I"m assuming all scholarship notifications were made in the acceptance packet, right?

the only thing i can think of is that if you applied late in the cycle, they are waiting to see if anyone that they have given aid to does not attend, and then they will offer money to others

They don't send out notifications that your file is complete, but they requested my final report a few days before Christmas.  I submitted my app online 12/8.  I didn't think that was late, but a lot of people really did apply a few months before that.  Who knows. 

Poop.  That's what I have to say about that.  Hrmph.

That's weird. I have a slightly better GPA and a slightly worse LSAT and I got waitlisted at St. John's. Dammit. I knew I should have joined the pep band in college. Stupid! Stupid!
