Pish, J only wants to waste YOUR time. Get wise.
168 / 3.22 LSDAS / 3.93 degreeCase - $20,000/yr Law-Medicine scholarshipwoah, is that like a joint JD/MD?!?!
J: If you want it in this thread (a thread I agree with in principle), please quote the relevant following text. I can try to keep it up, but sometimes I intend to leave up a certain post and delete it anyway because I'm going through mindlessly purging everything.University of Illinois (UIUC): $10k/yr. Must remain in "good standing" (2.0, possibly?). Notified via phone call from an Assistant Dean of Admissions in early December; acceptance letter with scholarship offer included came about a week later.Indiana University, Bloomington: $8.5k/yr. No particularly stringent maintenance requirement. Unsure of notification. Based on LSD, this was the standard initial scholarship offer to just about anybody, and instead of withdrawing I should have told them of my superior offers at their peer schools and they would have raised their offer.Iowa: $13.5k/yr. Must remain in top 25% of class. Option to go in-state 2L and 3L by working as a research assistant, which would make tuition close to $0. Notification letter came in the mail about a week after the acceptance letter.Notre Dame: $10k/yr. Notified of acceptance and award via e-mail, December-Januaryish. No requirement save remaining in good academic standing.Minnesota: $5k/yr. No initial offer. I told them it was down to UMN and UIUC for me and money was the only thing in UIUC's favor but that I preferred UMN; received offer a couple weeks later (after I'd sent in a deposit). Contingent on maintaining 3.3 GPA. Notified via phone call/e-mail.Numbers: 3.24/166. Other possible considerations: terrible sophomore year dragged down GPA, explained in an addendum, and strong junior and senior years supported my contention that the cumulative GPA was not representative of my ability; attended top university; didn't take easy courses to boost GPA. No significant extra-curriculars. Strong letters of recommendation from professors. Application success may have been aided by applying early (October), since people with similar numbers were placed on the Iowa scholarship waitlist when they ran out of money, and likewise, some people with similar numbers didn't even get into Notre Dame.Oh, also, Emory: $0. Unwilling to negotiate. (The only school besides UMN with which I attempted to do so.)
