Scholarships: You got one?


LConesa

Shockresist,
I worked as an academic assistant for the head of the Law department at my universtity, for 2 years. Then, when he was made Justice at the Supreme Court, I worked with him for 3 years. Also, I was a teacher's assistant to 2 proffesors for pretty much the duration of my studies (5 years), and was given an award for Academic Excellence from my school as well.
Hope that helps :) Overall, I have an academic and public service profile, which I am sure is more attractive to universitites (grant wise) than a private law one. I was also offered scholarships at NYU and American University, but Columbia was the most generous one.
Good luck!!!

I got 28K waiver from Northwestern and a full waiver from George Washington. By the way, I was also accepted by Columbia but they gave me no scholarship. After all it looks like I will end up in Duke (under Muskie scholarship).

Do you think schools are less likely to accept if you say you need a scholarship? And are they not able to give a scholarship if you don't say that in your applicatoin?

That, my friend, is impossible to know.

I do not believe most law schools are less likely to accept you if you say you need a scholarship to attend. I received scholarships for both my JD and LLM (Georgetown), and both times the scholarships were given as an incentive to pick a certain school. From talking to a professor who was on the admission committee for my JD, the admission committee makes decisions without looking at financial need, and then a separate committee makes the scholarship decision.

No, I don't think it's less likely you'll be accepted if you apply for financial aid. Generally, law schools point out in their web sites that their admissions process does not look into the financial status of the applicants until after they're admitted. Once admitted, that is when the schools determine how much financial aid will be granted.

If you don't apply for financial aid, you will naturally not be awarded any.

Hi,

Iam an Indian applicant. I submitted my application to NYU late March with permission for LLM in corporation law. I ve been put in wait list now. I wish to know whether there will be good chances for me to avail scholarship.
Additionally, I would like to know whether being in wait list is a barricade to get my admission in corporation law and scholarship.
Any details regarding scholarship is solicited.

Hello guys,

I am going to submit very soon the application for several law schools (NYU, Chicago, Georgetown, Stanford and Berkeley).
I am currently pursuing a PhD in my country, where I receive a full scholarship (roughly 10K a year) which is just sufficient to cover the costs of accomodation and a small amount of my ordinary expenses. The scolarship was awarded only to the first three ranked in the application process, and is automatically granted for 3 years from the beginning of the PhD.
As part of the PhD, I would like to pursue an LLM degree in the US, but as this is fairly expensive I need some funding from the Law schools I apply to. Would you mention in the application for the LLM (namely, in the CV) that I already receive the scolarship from my PhD program, or would it rather backfire against the possibility of receiving additional funding?
Any advice would be great! Thanks,
Nail

Hi Anchal,
I think its too late to reply to your question. I have also done my LL.B. from Mumbai(India) and currently I am in the US on a Work visa. I am also looking forward to doing an LL.M., probably starting January 2011. As I understand, you don't need to provide any documentation. Just while applying you need to mention whether or not you need financial assistance. I am not sure how and on what basis the schools evaluate the Indian marksheets (transcripts). But first a decision is made whether the school wants to admit you (irrespective of whether you need financial help). After they make a decision to admit you, they would check to see if you satisfy their criteria for financial assistance and they really are very eager that you should join their school, only then they would offer you some financial assistance. Hope this helps.
