Full Scholarship

Postby eternallearner » Mon Jan 04, 2010 6:56 pm

I have read that some applicants receive full academic scholarship to attend top 14 law schools.

May I know how (top 14) schools decide which student(s) receive(s) full academic scholarship?

For the scholarship, I'm sure they primarily base it on LSAT and GPA, especially for lower t14s, but once you get to the higher levels and everyone has super-high LSAT/GPA, I am sure that they focus on super-impressive softs and essays.

This. Once you break T6(ish) you need both outstanding stats and an outstanding backstory. You basically need to be an autoadmit at Yale.
