yeah its just when you have to get your application in by- there's no separate app. but i just don't know if that means it needs to be just transmitted or actually complete/UR?
also i know a girl with 3.5/164 who got the chancellors, she had good recs and i think 2 or 3 yrs of work experience. i know they interview finalists, but im not sure how many they award. also, i heard that if you're a finalist and don't get it you still get a significant scholarship. anyone know if thats true?
If I received the 15,000 annual scholarship, does that mean that a Chancellors interview is off the table?
Hey everyone, I'm a 3L at UNC. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have about the application process or life at UNC.
First, I'm sorry to hear some of your scholarship offers have been slightly disappointing. The law school has had some budget cuts that affect how much aid it can give, which stinks but there are two things to keep in mind 1) you can apply to get in-state tuition after you have lived in North Carolina for 12 continuous months (https://registrar.unc.edu/academic-serv ... ncy-guide/) and 2) you can negotiate your scholarship offer
I can't give specific numbers about the amount of my scholly, but I was able to negotiate for a $3,000 a year increase in my amount. I sent them my offer from a similarly ranked school that offered me a higher scholarship and it worked. The admissions told me they weren't sure if they were going to have the funds to make an increase but about two weeks after I requested it they increased my scholarship. My advice would be to reach out sooner, rather than later. Even if they tell you they can't currently make any adjustments, it is good to get on their radar and they can tell you when to follow up.
To answer the above question, if you got a $15,000 a year scholarship, that does not preclude you from getting an invite to interview for Chancellors. I believe they send out invites sometime in late January or early February. Though I believe those who received invites had offers of $17,500, but I am not positive.
