Early Decision Scholarships

Postby bberry32 » Sun May 17, 2015 3:13 pm

Can anyone tell me which schools have ED schollys and how much? I have only found two so far from the websites (NU@150k and UT@30k). Im comparing T14 + UT/UCLA. Your help is most appreciated.

GW does (full), but I hope you're not asking for this cycle.

BU, GWU, NU (50K), and WUSTL all offer early decision scholarships. I am a recipient of one of these scholarships, feel free to PM me if you would like more information.

Can you or someone go ahead and post more about an ED WUSTL scholarship? This is not something I've ever seen on TLS.

Washington University Law wrote:Early Decision Program

Our binding Early Decision program is designed for candidates who have researched law schools carefully and are certain that Washington University School of Law is their first choice of schools. If you are admitted through the Binding Early Decision Program you will be awarded a full tuition scholarship for 3 years.


I believe this cycle (2014-15) was the first year this was offered. citation needed

I'm assuming this is a joke but...... is it? Like do they have a tendency to award lots of money to high scorers even if you are not ED?

Yes, if you're in the upper 160's on the LSAT and have a decent GPA you're almost guaranteed a full ride or something close to it in the neighborhood of $100K+. The school has a lot of money and isn't afraid to use it, especially to protect their LSAT median.

I don't know how things at WUSTL have changed in the last two cycles but my cycle they had no shame (which was a good thing of course)

166= full ride. No questions asked. 3.0 GPA? Not a problem. (Almost no law schools care about softs anyway)

But they have the ED scholarship now and stuff so maybe it's different.
