im sure you'll get off the waitlist, you're slightly below the gpa they look for but good lsat. im sure you're high on the list! plus if you write a good LOCI you have an even better chance
[] Snippy7
Just an update: I asked for scholarship reconsideration and they immediately responded with no so I don't think they negotiate merit scholarships for the others who were wondering
Ah, well, that's unfortunate. :(
Only got $1k in merit scholly, very upsetting. hopefully they can negotiate
It's interesting they're that inflexible, when a number of schools in roughly the same "range"/area like UNH and NELB are fairly generous.
[] Snippy7
yeah I used NESL to negotiate and they said no within 2 hours and suggested I look for outside scholarships. tbh it doesn't bode well with me
That's my gut reaction as well. Justified or not, it makes me wonder what else they'd be inflexible on.
Thats sad to hear, I may try in like March but tbh even with 120k it would still accumulate a lot of loans
[] Snippy7
yeah, while I understand not being able to give it, the email was kinda cold and the fact that they didn't even really consider it (2 hours? really?) makes me like the school a bit less
@beaconpride: dude look at out of state, state schools. Youll get near a full ride at New Hampshire. Any school that isnt the elite ones in the boston region are not worth it. NEL is predatory with their conditional scholarships. look at the rates they are lost.
@Snippy7: Youre not going to like this but you should retake. 7sage and LsatLab are both incredibly afforadable and very great tools. I went from a 148 diagnostic to a 160. I emplore everyone to not pay full price at tier 4 schools. You will never escape the debt.
[] Snippy7
I cannot retake it, thanks for the suggestion however im currently working on my MS thesis and do not have time do to it. I don't mind paying some, I just wanted it to be competitive with NESL
[] Snippy7
@FlutteringSqueamishPuffin: I also do not have the money to pay for another lsat study group, its just not in my grad student budget lol
Unfortunately as much as I would love to move out of state its just not an option for me because I can't afford living on my own, I'm going straight from undergrad and commuting from my parents
when to expect scholarship information after getting an A
got a scholarship email like 5 mins after my A email
@beaconpride: Dude apply to more schools. You will get close to full rides to T3 schools with a 160 and high GPA. Then once you get a letter negotiate for instate tution.
Hey guys, the portion of my status checker that shows what the status is disappeared. Did that happen to anyone else?
Happened to me too! Heard it means that a decision is coming... however I'm not sure if it'll be tonight or tomorrow
When did that happen for you? Mine has been this way for almost a week now :'( lol
same been about a week for me
Did anyone also apply to New England?
My status disappeared and the message that says my app is under review disappeared as well. Did anyone receive a decision shortly after that happened?
that happened to me and it reverted back to under review
no decision yet
does anyone have under requirement list, final transcript with degree conferred? don't know what to make of it
getting the sense that maybe they didn't receive my final transcript? haven't had any trouble with other schools
@HangingInThere: I do, but it's checked off.
@SuperEiyah: I did; NELB and UNH both. Being in NH and non-traditional, UNH was always my top choice. The offer from NELB would have had to have been AMAZING and UNH's close to nothing in order to make it worth the commute into Boston every day
