This was the original e-mail sent to the school:"Dear Admissions Committee, I am writing first, to let you know how excited I am about the possibility of attending ***** ***** Law School. I am forever grateful to all of you for taking a chance on me and admitting me to the school and I will not disappoint you in any way. It comes as no surprise for me to say that ***** is my #1 choice and that I will do my best to attend. Unfortunately, my financial situation most likely prevents me from attending without some type of scholarship. I could take the maximum amount of loans available but that will still not be sufficient, as I am married and have a newborn child. I am petitioning the Admissions Committee for a scholarship so that I can attend the School of Law and once again, promise that I will not disappoint you, should you offer one to me. I am aware that my numbers are not at the level were you usually offer merit-based scholarships to students, but as I wrote in my application, I truly believe that my numbers do not accurately convey the type of student that I am, or my intellectual abilities. If necessary, I would accept a scholarship on a conditional basis, as I am positive that I will do everything in my power to assure you that I am deserving of it. Please consider my request and get back to me as soon as you can. Thank you for your time, Sincerely, ******************* S.S. #: ***-**-****"This was their very evasive response 2 hours later:"Dear Mr. *****, Thank you for contacting ***** ***** Office of Admissions. In regards to your email; we do not have separate scholarship applications or opportunities. All students will be considered for scholarships when they are reviewed by the committee for admissions. Any scholarship will be awarded in an acceptance letter. Regards, ***** "This response was useless as I had already known this. I decided to write an e-mail to the Dean of the Law School. This is what I wrote:"Dear Dean *****, I recently contacted the Admissions Committee with a reasonable concern about my financial situation and admission to ***** ***** but the response received was simply a reiteration of the Admission Committee's policies. I was actually asking the committee to reconsider their initial (policy) decision and look into the possibilities of awarding me a scholarship. I have decided to send this second e-mail directly to you in hopes that you can forward it to a person that could take my request into consideration, maybe even, and hopefully yourself. Enclosed (below) is my original e-mail with the request, and the committee's response. Thank you so much for your time and I apologize for the inconvenience that this may cause you. Sincerely, ***** ***** S.S. #: ***-**-****"I haven't sent that last e-mail yet. What do you guys think. Should I send it?
