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
I believe the Woodruff Scholarship finalists will be announced late January?Maybe?
I actually called a while ago and they said finalist are announced quickly after the deadline so could be early as this week
Any updates on Woodruff finalists?
They notified the finalists last week on tuesday or wednesday I think
Did anyone else go to Mercer's Law Preview Day?
got accepted this morning
I did go to preview day which I liked a lot, but was already accepted before going
nice, i was on the waitlist when i went, and the admissions people made me fell like i was going to get accepted off it but did not think it would be so soon after the preview day lol
Just got my A! I only recently became interested in Mercer and was a bit late to apply... do they do open houses?
@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: thank you!! This helps a lot!!
Just set up a tour with them in a couple of weeks! Even if it doesn't end up in a A, I hear the city itself is beautiful.
does anyone know when we hear back about scholarship info? got accepted in late january and havent heard anything yet
@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!
About what time of day did yall get your decision? I am applying as a transfer and anxiously awaiting
I received my merit scholarship letter about one week after my acceptance. I emailed them about the Woodruff Scholarship - they will make those decisions in Jan
