merit aid at CCN

Postby icpb » Sat Jan 08, 2011 1:33 am

Would someone with a 176 on the LSAT and a 3.94 GPA be able to get any merit aid at UChicago and NYU?

Rubenstein?

Your problem will be convincing the Dean that offering you $$$ might actually lure you away from Harvard, since with those numbers you should basically be auto-admit for HLS.

Thanks for the replies. If I'm lucky enough to get into these schools along with HLS, I think $ from UChicago and NYU would be very alluring since I have quite some debt already from college. I'm guessing those numbers probably won't get me much $ (if any) from Columbia.

I have never seen one post filled with so much wrong.

What was wrong in the post? Sorry, I'm very new to the concept of financial aid in law school. The way I currently understand it is, I won't get much if any need-based aid at YHS even if I get in; if I have to finance law school with just loans, I would be over $300000 in debt by the time graduate.

Sorry dude.. you need at least a 179 and 3.96 to get merit aid at CCN. You will definitely get a full ride at some tier 2 schools though.

Would those numbers get half tuition at Penn/Duke/Cornell?

If Chicago is really handing out 60 Rubensteins, if you have decent softs I can't imagine you wouldn't be offered one.

They're handing out 20/year for the next three years if I remember correctly.

Correct you are! Even at 20, however, I like OP's odds.
