Scholarship Data for Schools Ranked 19-100

Sorry for the jacked up formatting. I'm posting this because I took the time to do it, dammit. Data is pulled from the official LSAC guide published earlier this year, and the numbers are percentages of the entire student body. I'm not sure whether c/o 2015's scholarship data was included, but it should have been. One thing to note, some state flagship schools may have a low percentage of the student body on half-rides or more, but many of these places also charge less than half the tuition of other schools like Syracuse, Seton Hall, Marquette, Santa Clara. For example, in-state at Arkansas is like $12,000; New Mexico $16,000, etc.

It's interesting to see just how few people at some some schools are on full-tuition scholarships. This may be useful to those gunning for full rides; maybe you have a job lined up after graduation, or are particularly debt-averse, or whatever. While these numbers don't reflect one's chances at obtaining a full scholarship, they may in a general way give you an idea of where that is more likely to happen. Or where it won't happen. Of course, this is aggregate data, and the numbers are subject to change year-to-year.

I'm confused what the numbers mean? And the random "yes" throughout some schools. (I'm sure there is a reason I'm not seeing)

sorry, I was hoping the transfer would have been smoother. The first number is the percentage of students on full-scholarships (or more). The second is the percentage of students who have at least a half-tuition scholarship. "yes" means the school is stingy!

I'll add schools 20-50 soon, and I'll just post a link to the original spreadsheet, so it's easier to read. Just to clarify, if a school has another number beside it, I've identified it as stingy, and my made-up criteria is that it offers fewer than 15% of the student body a half-tuition scholarship or better.

The chart isn't quite fair to a couple of schools, like WUSTL and Washington & Lee, who actually do offer "near full-tuition" scholarships (40K per year).

Many schools give out a healthy number of half-tuition grants, but the problem is that, even if those schools are cheaper publics, the tuition is so high it still makes the option to attend a poor one (for many people).

I am looking at Iowa and Indiana- if these numbers are correct- that is great news.

Tons of people at NDLS have almost half scholarships, 20K when tuition is like 44. I don't know if it's fair to call us stingy.

SMU only offers a full-tuition scholarship as part of the Sumner's Scholar program, which is hard to get. But they are pretty generous with money (up to $30K a year, which is well over 50% scholarship) for higher LSAT's, so take that for what it's worth.

Yeah this is somewhat unfair in that those near-half-rides will not get caught in the data, and some schools do offer lots of those, I'm sure.

Notre Dame's tuition and fees for the 2012 entering class was right at $46,000 (it went up 6% from the previous year). That will have people owing like $135,000 after graduation assuming no debt to begin with. For the people applying this year, the likelihood is that it will be slightly worse since somehow, someway, tuition keeps increasing.

I knew that Fordham only gives 2 full tuitions per year, but I didn't realize how few get a half-ride or more (I'm the 2.9%)
