Best Schools for Merit Scholarships? 170+

Postby yezzir » Mon May 30, 2011 2:30 am

Hi all,

I'm just wondering if people know some schools known for giving out full-ride merit scholarships to students with 170+ LSATs?

I know Wash U is probably the biggest of them, but are there any others known particularly for doing this? Top 50 schools would be preferable. I tried to search on Google but had little luck finding anything of significance. I have a 3.4/172 btw.

Thanks in advance.

They might, they might not. Probably not.

I don't know how the scholarship atmosphere is this year, but UGA shelled out scholarships two years ago. I got ~a 75% tuition scholarship (was also in state) my first year with ~75% numbers.

You'll certainly get into higher-ranked schools, but I don't know if anyone will equal that value -- as it is extremely easy to get in-state tuition second year in Georgia + Athens is a very cheap area to live in.

A few years ago Indiana got a $35 million donation (and the university had agreed to match funds in perpetuity) which allowed them to effectively buy their entire class to improve the numbers. The money was intended to go entirely to scholarships, so they had the ability to effectively buy their entire class in order to raise their ranking, which should be the case for the next few years as well.
