I've recently been accepted to Tech, but am still waiting for the bulk of my schools before I make a decision. However, they did offer me a scholarship, but it's contingent on being in the top 1/3 or the class. From your experience, do you happen to know what that cutoff is generally about? And how hard is it to achieve it? Like how many hours/week did you spend studying (outside of classes I mean). I have to give them at least some preliminary notice by March 1st, so I'm trying to collect as much data before sending them a deposit to at least reserve the scholarship if I should take them up on it.
IN AT TECH!!! Snail mail, small envelope, very excited!! No mention of $$$ though. Do they usually send that info out with acceptances or do they wait until later...?
Just wanted to share my experience at the Tech day for accepted students with scholarships that was held this past Friday. Not sure if there is another thread out there regarding this event or not. Basically, I was blown away by the reception we received at Tech. We had lunch, sat in on a Con Law class, were given a tour by 3L's, had a question answer session with current 3L's, observed a mock trial by the Board of Barristers, and had dinner with faculty. Everyone, faculty included, was warm and welcoming. The fact that the faculty took their personal time to sit and visit with us and have dinner with us was awesome. The Dean and his wife were there as well and took time to meet and visit with each and every prospective student. One of the things that the Dean said was that if the faculty cares so much about prospective students, imagine how much they will care when you are enrolled in their class. Also, in the the Con. Law course that we observed, the professor knew each student by name! The whole experience was VERY different from other schools I have visited.
One L at Tech Law here, if you have any questions post ‘em up or send me a message. This was a great resource when I was deciding on what school to attend. It is Spring Break for us right now, so I’ll check the forum in a few days and try to answer any questions you have. I won’t have time to check the forum after this week. Good luck to all of you!
