Full Scholarship vs Re-applying

Postby edwardt1988 » Wed Aug 14, 2013 4:18 am

Long story short, I applied last cycle and got into BU/BC with about 20K/yr. Since I didn't want to take that much debt, I re-took the lsat and got 176-178 so I withdrew after accepting, planning to re-apply this new cycle. Yesterday the school I withdrew from offered me full tuition if I go this year. I have until Thursday to decide.

I think with my stats LSAT 176-178 and GPA of around 3.65 it's still a better option to re-apply. The scholarship is nice, but it still wouldn't be free considering COA.

Anyone think I should take the scholarship?

For the love of pete, please do not waste that LSAT! If your petrified of debt just know that you have a 100% early decision full ride at both GULC and NW waiting for you. Your also in everywhere 4 on down if you decide not to ED anywhere and go regular decision Chicago 59% (78% got avg of 50k) Columbia 90% (41% got avg of 40k) NYU 97% etc (47% got avg of 60k). Probably out at HYS due to the 3.6x gpa if your not a URM but def. throw in an app. But PLEASE for the love of all that is good do not go to a BU or BC with a 178

No!! Don't take it. Patience is a virtue my friend. You have a great shot at full schollys from better schools. It's only 1 more month until you can start applying again.

If I had a "Darwin Awards" for top 10 dumbest law student moves, this might be on the list. For the love of Pete, just wait.

You're thinking of GW, not GULC.

Ok, I knew that taking a full scholarship at BU/BC would not make sense in this case, but no harm in asking(for me at least)
