Does Mercer negotiate scholarships historically
I honestly am not sure
I am confused bc I applied for the Woodruff scholarship and have not heard anything about that but they offered me 93k
the deadline for Woodruff is in mid January so maybe they will give more aid after then

@InstinctiveMongoose: just sent a LOCI, did they mention when they consider wait-lists?
@AquaticClassyLettuce: When i went to the preview day they said it varies year to year, but they try not to accept anyone off waitlist too late into the summer. They did say some years they accept alot and others not so much, but i would encourage you to make a visit and talk with admissions people i think that is what helped me alot. they were extremely nice and helpful.

@InstinctiveMongoose: If you find out please share
I saw something on their website that said an application for institution scholarships is sent out to accepted students in May, but I see that some people on here already received scholarship money? @just-wanna-go-to-law-school
how did everyone find out about scholarship awards? were they mentioned in your acceptance letter or in another letter? thanks!
