Every scholarship offer I got was for all three years.

To the OP:
Scoring high on the LSAT could earn you as much as $150,000 at some schools.

What was your UGPA? I know people are careful about mentioning race but it is possible a minority with a high score or slightly lower may have beat you. Just because we dont want to talk about it does not negate the fact that top, second, and third tier schools arent discussing it. NO ONE wants their school to hit front page news as only giving scholarships to young white males. So you may have been beaten by a woman, a black woman, chinese, hispanic.....you get the picture.

My apologies. I only use the internet to study, research, or work so I have no "Internet etiquette" that most have. I did not realize that thread was so old but Ill make sure to not comment on older discussions.

It just seems like the moderator would disable comments from items we are not meant to make replies to. If I was able to comment, I guess I didnt break any rules. YOU let me know what the rules are. I read them but maybe I missed this one. I hope to God you are not in my law group.

I didnt mean to offend anyone with my "shitty" comment. OBVIOUSLY we dont discuss too many issues in depth here. Hey, I can do as the Romans. I didnt realize there would be so many shallow people on the board.

What should my first comment have been, by the way? No, let me know what to say, how to say it, when to say it, and I will. I thought I'd join in on law convo (since Im a bit removed from chatting on the net) but guess not. Thanks for letting me know I'm welcomed!!!! You all are the best!!!!

I can't tell if this question is serious. Answer: Hell yes.

I applied 2 straight cycles. In terms of the schools that I got into on both cycles, I got way more $$$ during the second cycle. Schools that I got wait listed at during the first cycle I ended up getting into during the second cycle with $$$. Only difference during my 2nd cycle is a higher LSAT score.

The OP of this thread is looooooong gone. Please don't bump old threads unless you have good reason (like you have the same question and would like additional input, particularly if you're wondering if the advice is still good).

If you wanna trash AA, there's a forum here for that. I'm sure you'd fit right in over there

The person she was replying to may have already graduated from law school, worked two years at big law, realized it's miserable and sold all possessions to go travel the world and learn yoga

Strong 6 year bump/ first post. I cringed
