Looks like we have our first scholarship offer reported! Someone put it in yesterday.
13:03
@MorningPercy: that was me! full-tuition (with the whole LRA position tied to it), was told it would be 5-7 weeks but got it 2 days after scholly interview.
@PsychaCola: that's awesome! How was the scholarship interview?
14:58
@PsychaCola: Congrats! Did the offer come in an email or something else?
16:04
@wealthofnations: pretty chill, some challenging questions tho so be prepared for the typical job interview type questions.
Just give me my R. Put me out of my misery and fully onboard the retake LSAT train.
14:45
Hmmm. Seems like all of the scholarship offers so far have been full rides

Anyone still waiting on a scholarship after the interview?
yep
As getting calls or emails?

i created a basic discord for admitted students if anyone wants to join! https://discord.gg/EW4kRr73p2

@wealthofnations: Email
They didn't even send my R via email, just updated the status and that's it.
16:10
how long did it take to hear back from iowa?
16:10
im on hold until my jan score unfortunately but jw
@marbles420: I've been UR about a month, nothing yet. Seems like the trickle out decisions slowly versus in big waves.
I got a decision in five days. That might be an anomaly though.
14:36
Interesting. No one below the median (except URMs) have received a scholarship. However, those at and above are likely to receive a full tuition scholarship
17:24
doesnt iowa do a scholarship interview
@EzrealFizz13: From what I understand, it's more a formality to make sure people are serious about attending - apparently they gave away too many scholarships or something a few years back
10:25
did anyone's staus tracker banner disappear prior to decisions

Think they’re done handing out As for today? My status checker moved to the top of law hub
That's probably a good sign that a decision is inbound
