I completed all of the applications at the end of November and am starting to get responses from schools. I know I most likely want to go somewhere in NYC, and my top pick (unless a miraculous NYU acceptance and scholarship) is Cardozo. I thought I had a chance at securing close to a full ride at Cardozo based on past stats, but have just heard back from them this morning to only receiving an annual $35,000 grant. I know this is the school I want and want some advice on how to begin the scholarship negotiation process and maybe some tips on big outside scholarship possibilities.
A bit about me: I have a 3.94 undergrad GPA, 164 LSAT, currently taking a gap year working at a small law firm, applied for full-ride public interest scholarships at many schools.
So far, I have received the following offers:
St. Johns- Full Tuition (stay in top 80% of class)
Suffolk Law - Full Tuition (unconditional)
George Washington -$23,000 per year (unconditional)
Cardozo - $35,000 per year (unconditional)
Still waiting on responses from UPenn, NYU, Duke, Cornell, Georgetown, Boston University, Fordham, Boston College, Northeastern
I would really prefer not to have to take the LSAT again, but if you think that's my best bet to get close to a full-ride negotiation, I would consider it. I really appreciate any advice you have for me!
