Georgetown Financial Aid and Scholarship opportunities

Postby dustinsc » Sat Oct 30, 2010 3:45 am

Does anyone know what kinds of merit- and need-based scholarships are available for Georgetown? I scored a 177 on the LSAT and have a 3.86 GPA (3.84 counting some CC credit from when I was in high school). It basically comes down to this: Georgetown is my number one pick, but only if I can get a combination of grants and scholarships to cover about 80% of tuition. Otherwise, I'll just go to school for free somewhere else.

Chances are you'll do well, but it is kind of random. Apply to all T25. See what you get and negotiate.

You can likely get scholarship money at several T14 schools. Blanket them all.

You prefer Georgetown to Yale?

Yes. Yes I do. There's a lot more to consider in a law school than just its rank. I don't want to be president or chief justice; therefore, I don't need a Yale education.

Georgetown is pretty stingy with merit aid. They give only a handful of $75k-$90k scholarships even for super high numbers.
