Scholarship $$$$ from Brooklyn
« on: March 09, 2005, 11:48:31 PM »
Received notice today that I've been awarded a Prince scholarship of $17,500 per year at Brooklyn Law, to keep the scholarship I have to maintain a cumulative rank that keeps me in the top 1/3 of my graduating class. The letter came snail mail to my permanent address. Those of you waiting to hear, I live in Staten Island so I'd probably be in the first mail wave, the rest are on their way!

Congratulations!!!! This is wonderful.  I think that is the highest amount offered by BLS.

And you were waitlisted in Cardozo?

For whatever reason I struck a sour chord with Cardozo and GMU, could be they evaluated my app before my December score came through?? Ohh well.. with money from BLS I would have to get into a top 20 to consider going elsewhere.

Also congratulations.  Do you mind telling us your numbers.  I want to see if I have a chance of getting a scholarship myself. 

So are you attracted to BLS?

Cardozo is acting strangely--that is for sure.

Received my notification today-  Carswell Scholarship of 15,000 a year, renewable, providing I remain in the top third of the class.

Still leaning towards Temple, but money is certainly starting to add in my decision.

When you guys received your acceptance packet..did you get a formal letter of admission?  All there was in my big envelope were those two folders about housing and financial aid and no letter.
