Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
@AspiringTenuousIbis: They seem very numbers obsessed from what I experienced when I visited.
157 and 3.8 still Got WL
@ExultantWarlikeKiwi: thats wild feel like you totally should have gotten in
i withdrew bc they refused to increase my scholarship at all with 161 and 3.82 ($$) im like at least give me 75% bc ur ranking is so low
i got a full ride to a school ranked like 35 places higher than them so i dont get why they wont increease at all
I just don't understand how they are going to fill a class like most people with high stats they are accepting are going to choose higher ranked schools with more money offered
when i asked ab scholly they basically told me you dont need a scholarship bc you'll be making a lot of money after school lmao
and now they just sent an email saying "didn't get a scholarhsip? just take out loans!" like ok thanks lol
they also told me i dont need a scholarship bc they have a high bar passage rate.... i was so confused lmaooo
lmaoooo so crazy I wonder if they have always been like this or if they are trying something new this year
@HesitantSlowWhale: did they give you any $
@AspiringTenuousIbis: zero dollars
any news if today is an A day from Belmont? Got an update on status checker says email w decision sent
nothing received yet
yeah I emailed them saying I had received full rides to two higher ranked institutions and they said they'd reconsider in spring after most people accept/withdraw to an institution
@GreatSelectiveDolphin: that's wild lmaoooooo
@AspiringTenuousIbis: Yep, and im a veteran so i have good softs as well. Very confusing
@HesitantSlowWhale: I like Belmont a lot too, I think they're a good school but if they're gonna hold out on me then I have 0 qualms about going somewhere else and spending much less money to get an arguably more prestigious degree.
@GreatSelectiveDolphin: agreed. beautiful campus, students are cool, but i'll choose $150k less debt at a higher ranked school any day
also crazy that they wouldn't let you negotiate until after seat deposit bc they make you withdraw everywhere else when you pay their seat deposit so you'd literally be stuck
If that's the case thank God I haven't enrolled anywhere yet.
yeah its the fine print of their commitment agreement. a little predatory imo
hmmmm, most curious....
Well they agreed to bump me to full tuition, have not committed anywhere yet but I am likely to make a decision this next week.
got waitlisted smh
Thought maybe things would change this year for Belmont, but as an early applicant (accepted yesterday) I will confirm here that they haven't lol
50% scholarship conditional on top 75% of class. Just not a competitive offer, have a hard time believing this school will be able to compete given how bad these offers are/ how pushy they are towards getting you to deposit (already bombarded with emails since yesterday, maybe 5 emails total already)
@wealthofnations: wow. Am going to be applying soon and was super interested in them, but reading this thread has me super concerned they'll toss me a shitty offer lmao
You might stand a better chance for the full ride with your higher LSAT, and I know my stats aren't elite, but given their rank and age of the program you'd think they would be a bit more generous. Seems like a weird strategy for them to be hunting stats/ only giving max money to high GPA&LSAT applicants knowing that most of those people won't end up there.
I actually went ahead and just immediately withdrew because I knew I would never take that offer. Not even worth negotiating given how much unconditional money there is out there elsewhere. Figured I'd free them up to at least offer the money to someone else.
