Securing Scholarships without a GPA

Postby whereskyle » Fri Apr 12, 2013 1:02 pm

Hey all, I went to a UG that did not award grades or a GPA. I have a 170, and I'm thinking about applying to tier 1 schools in the Fall in an attempt to secure scholarships. I know that most of us are not adcomms, but I wonder if you all might just throw out your opinions regarding my chances at hefty schollies from schools in this tier without a GPA. Schools, in which I'm interested for their emphases on public service, include GW and UCLA. I have legal w.e., public service experience, and strong recommendations. The PS will be solid as well.

What do you all think my chances are of grabbing full rides or close to it from these schools on the strength of a 170? Also, do you have any recommendations to other law schools for someone interested in government and public interest work? I am working toward a new LSAT floor of 174, before I sit for the test again, but in the time being I'm wondering what I can make of my 170. Thanks, all!
