[] Snippy7
has anyone successfully negotiated with Suffolk for a scholarship? they denied my reconsideration request within an hour
^ wondering the same. Just sent an email asking them to reconsider
[] Snippy7
They responded to me within an hour saying no. Honestly it rubbed me the wrong way.
[] Snippy7
Like they really didn't even reconsider me....
Some schools do not reconsider scholarships for anyone
They responded and said no because I don't have a new GPA or LSAT score xx <3
Just got accepted today. A $3,000 scholarship is kind of crazy though lol ik Suffolk is ranked higher, but the scholarships at NESL are so much better
It's not like Suffolk is ranked THAT much higher than the other schools around here
[] Snippy7
Suffolk knows they're highly regarded reputation wise so I think they know they can get away with not giving scholarships
[] Snippy7
like rep within the northeast
@CuteStingyRhino: who did you email about negotiating your scholarship
Does anyone know if/when they are going to start pulling from WL???
I emailed Anthony Orlando because he was the one who sent my acceptance and scholarship info
I rejected their offer, so hopefully someone moves up the list!
@beckalish how the hell did you get $180k with your LSAT?? Good for you!
Any ideas of when waitlist movement will start?
Looks like historically they start in June!
I just got off the waitlist not sure if I will be attending though
Wow congrats! Thats awesome. Did you send a LOCI?
Yes, I did. But I asked for more scholarship money since they only gave me 15k a year and I have full rides at other schools. If they can't offer more I'm going to withdrawl so fingers crossed one of you can get it!
Oh no, I am sorry! Did they end up answering? I was WLed in December and I sent two LOCI's. really hoping to get off. All the best to you - keep us updated!
yes, they said they don't have the ability to currently offer more aid but gave me websites to find outside aid. They also said the top 5 students of the class at the end of 1L receive full tuition scholarship so I will be withdrawing I hope one of you gets the seat!
R today
Im sorry to hear that! There is something else out there for you and everything will work out! Thank you so much, fingers crossed for sure.
