scholarship question

Postby northwood » Sat Nov 13, 2010 9:18 pm

Im trying to figure out if I have a chance at any scholarship money:

Do you have to be above teh 75% on both the LSAT and Undergrad GPA, or above the medians to be eligible for sholarship consideration?

No, but that would certainly help

Above both medians should get you some money, above BOTH 75% should get you a full tuition scholly or a YP

You need to be WELL above both medians to get full, ie: 2-3 LSAT points above 75% and .2 GPA. Full Scholarships for non-URM's are increasingly rare.

All depends on the school.

I said above BOTH 75% to get full, so yes that would be well over both medians in most cases (though not all)
