Scholarship recipients are not the basis for how they organize sections. The admissions office assigns everyone an academic predictor number based off of your GPA/LSAT and then puts everyone in sections based off of an equal curve.

While scholarship recipients are typically higher in the GPA/LSAT range, there are some students, especially those from in state, who have similar statistics to those out of state but do not get scholly's.

TL/DR: section stacking is a myth.

Thanks for the info! I guess the question to ask at the open house is what percentage of 1L's are on scholarship.
