@LolahLaw: Yep
Wave? Seems like they're rushing on decisions prior to seat deposits elsewhere
Kent's is Monday so it's do or withdraw for me
19:23
Has anyone successfully negotiated scholarships with Loyola? I sent an email asking for reconsideration and they said they aren't reconsidering at this time but will let me know if this changes. I deposited at Kent but still slightly favor Loyola. Kent gave $45k and Loyola gave $33k. Would it make it more likely for them to reconsider my scholarship if I put down the first deposit?

I called asking about the reconsideration process but the admissions office said that the initial aid amount is often final
I also got a rejection about scholarship reconsideration. However, I also figured there is upper class scholarship that you can apply for. Unfortunate, but it seems like they are really frugal this year.
12:29
It kinda looks like their later decisions are prioritizing high LSAT or GPA but not working with the largest sample
DePaul and Loyola in Chicago are particularly known for not negotiating, although DePaul moreso than Loyola
Kent will renegotiate but seemingly only over amounts for better-ranked schools
Also it's May. How do I still not have a decision from Loyola? I will have started at Kent by the time I hear back.
is it worth asking for more $
If you're above the median then ask.
Who's going to Loyola?
Unfortunately, Loyola does not do scholarship negotiations. Kent does!
I am attending!

anyone see any waitlist movement?
16:45
loyola or kent?
17:03
I applied in late dec and still haven’t heard from them. Not even waitlisted … it is May…. Not sure when I will hear back..!
Wave? Feb applicant, just heard back
@LFC2024: whoever gives you more money both are great schools!
18:56
wave.
my status tracker shot up yesterday do you guys think i will hear back soon
@StraightTellingSeal: probably yes
I applied in february. Any ideas when I will hear anything back?
11:06
I think it also depends on your stats, I've been checking LSD results and found that even if you applied later than others (in Feb, march), if your stat is 162+ with pretty decent GPA, people hear back earlier than others who applied in dec/jan with a bit lower stat..... (me.. sigh sigh)
I applied three months ago should I email?
deposits are coming up for other schools, would hate to waste money
you could send a LOCI
has anyone called loyola and asked if they are likely to admit from the waitlist?
the second seat deposit passed yesterday so I’d assume WL movement if any would happen at the end of the month-July.
