USC Scholarships
« on: March 06, 2007, 04:18:54 PM »
So I just received a scholarship offer from USC for $15k a year. I'm freaking stoked! I mean that's only less than half of what tuition costs, but hey - better than paying full pop! This totally puts USC on the top of my list right now.

Anyways, has anyone else gotten this letter yet?

Also, does anyone know about the 1L summer fellowship positions they give to incoming freshman and how to get/ask for one???

DISCUSS!

Congrats!

Still waiting for my USC offer. 

When did you get all the financial stuff in?

I got the stuff in within about 2 weeks of being accepted in February. So I think it's been about 3 weeks from giving them my fin aid forms to getting the letter back.

On a side note, my turn around might have been expidited because I hand carried the documents to the school when I went to visit there.

I got it in the mail today also!  They've been very kind to me thus far.

Nice!  I'm still waiting for a USC response.  I find it kind of weird that its taking so long..I've got 3 T14 acceptances already and am still waiting for USC :P  I actually applied to USC way early to - like back in November.  I only applied to CLS, Boalt and NW in like January...so I thought USC was just slow, but I guess its just me!!   :P

Grrr.  I feel like my LSAT is JUST below the merit scholarship point, and my GPA is definitely not high enough for one.

I've given up on expecting anyone to throw money at me  >:(

You are like the worst Bruin ever. :)

True, but I was waitlisted at UCLA, even though I earned a 3.9 GPA from their UG institution, and even though my LSAT was at their median..I think I have a right to be bitter.

They've told me a scholarship letter is on the way. I'm hoping it's as generous as those all of you guys have received.
