Am I mistaken for expecting a merit scholarship?

Postby UserNameHere » Thu Jan 23, 2014 2:27 pm

I've been accepted to some T14s with my numbers ranging from the median to the 75th percentile in both LSAT and GPA. Obviously, each school is different, but I received my acceptances as much as 8 weeks ago from some of them and haven't heard a thing about merit scholarship. . . . I likely won't get any need aid, but I have to say I'm a bit surprised not to have heard anything about merit. Am I wildly off base? What kind of numbers does it require for merit scholarship?

You'll get some based on your numbers. Probably nothing crazy, but who knows. Just wait.

Make sure there aren't more application steps that you're skipping. NU, for instance, requires FAFSA, NeedAccess, and a couple of short essays before they'll consider you for merit money.

Good point. Pretty sure I covered all of my bases, but I'll triple check that I crossed the t's and dotted the i's.
