Chances at scholarships (163, 3.7 AA Male)

Postby AfroThunder1212 » Fri Jan 07, 2011 11:16 am

Currently accepted at Duke, Vandy and South Carolina (home state/safety), pending at Chicago, Michigan, Virginia, William and Mary and Wake. Just wondering what amount anyone with stats in my ballpark might have received from any of these schools. Also, are there any schools I might want to throw a late app to? I would like to stay in the Carolinas/Mid-Atlantic for anything outside of T14. I will not go to NY for school and I'm really looking at trying to break into the NC market when I graduate.

Any chance of a retake? You have a solid GPA, and a few more points on LSAT would be a game changer.

I would guess that you have chances at good money from Vandy and SC...I can't speak to the higher ranked schools such as UVA, Duke, etc but I would expect that you get good money from W&M as well.

You'll probably get money at Vandy and lower. Michigan didn't offer me anything initially but they seem very willing to negotiate from what I saw last cycle. Chicago also gave money. Duke gave a scholarship to a friend of mine whose LSAT was a little lower than yours.

Keep in mind that if Michigan does offer you initial $$, they don't really like to negotiate. But if you get nothing at first, then they'll talk

Thanks, pretty much what I was expecting. I saw the 'retake' coming, but I currently teach high school and coach soccer there so my prep time is pretty non-existent. I did change three answers on the test that would have been credited answers had I trusted my gut. Maybe I'll give it another go with no eraser this time...
