You to my guy, for what it’s worth, I do live in Madison. And coming here from chicago, I can say Madison is not all that. Milwaukee is better in terms of everything in my opinion.

@Thewrightlawyer: could just be because its later in the cycle, but yeah I do think that 165 and up usually get a lot more $$
Understandable, but 5K a year?
I'll starve to death with that money.
For example, KU Law has offered me a $60,000 scholarship for all three years, covering 78% of their total tuition cost of $76,543.

I agree- I think there is jsut not as much $$ left at the end and they have such a long waitlist to pick from there is not incentive to offer $$.
That's understandable.

Yeah I mean I didn’t get much to start because my LSAT isn’t great, but it’s still the cheapest option for me unfortunately being in state :(
It’s 100K in
State right?
105K
You got 45K scholly, meaning you’d need 60K in aid,
That’s actually manageable

Very true, at least I can save on bar prep I suppose

@StripedBumpyBeagle: i did but i dont think it increased THAT much?

StripedBumpyBeagle
23:36
Mine showed tuition increased by 9.5k per year

Turns out it was an error in the calculation, so they are sending me a new one
Damn,
Has anyone still not heard back??? Is this a bad sign??
