That all depends on which schools you are looking at

How much would I need to score on the LSAT to get merit-based scholarships to any of the T14 ?

Still depends on the school and also your gpa, but you probably need at least a 169 or 170. The higher the better, though.

Some information would be helpful:
1) What grades do you have (I assume you don't follow the US' A, B, C, etc., but most international students I know get some sort of evaluation so law schools can see how you performed)

2) WHAT SCHOOLS ARE YOU LOOKING AT? A 160 could get you money at some of the worst in the country, but even within the T-14, it matters which ones you want.

Look at lawschoolnumbers.com

At least above both medians, above both 75's would be nice.

Citizenship doesn't matter when it comes to merit-based scholarships. I'm an international student too, and a 169 + 3.6 got me 45k at Cornell, and 30k at Michigan.


That would be for all three years I presume ? or 45k every year ?
