1) UCLA
2) UCLA
3) UCLA
4) Retake


P.S. Employment statistics for GWU are abysmal.

Check lawschoolnumbers.com Based on last year's results, you should expect to be considered for $105,000 over 3 years from GWU. And, yes, that could make a difference depending upon total COA for each law school.

P.S. Many with similiar numbers show no scholarship award.

Call admissions & ask. Inform them of your options.

Just FYI 17+ 3.8+ did not warrant any $ here from GW last year

If you have a 3.8+/170+, then you should have much better options than GWU.

Also keep in mind that even 105k scholly would leave you with close to 140-150k debt from GW after 3 years of interest. Sticker at either of these schools is a bad idea.

Just look on LSN... It's really easy to see what numbers yield what kind of scholarship money...

LSN is a great resource, but awards by GWU are not consistent in that not all high numbers report getting scholarship offers. May be a case of "scholarship yield protection".
