What amount is a good scholarship?

Postby MrFreshPrince95 » Mon Jan 16, 2017 2:03 pm

Ive currently been offered a 90k and 30k scholarship to two competing schools. I just wanted to know what you guys generally think is the range for a bad, average, and good scholarship. I'm just tryna get an idea of what is something i should be looking at and what i shouldnt be.

I know that this question is definitely relative and subjective, but maybe this could help answer the question: what's the average law student's scholarship at the school they are attending?

I can definitely elaborate as well. Thanks!

Law school transparency has a page that shows this information. At Depaul for example, about 25% of the class attends on a 50-100% scholarship, and 3.4% pay full price. https://www.lstreports.com/schools/depaul/costs/

From DePaul's website, they offer incoming students up to $30k/year max. So they don't have full scholarship. :evil:

But according to their 509, where they aren't allowed to lie, they offer a very small number of full+ scholarships.
