Which schools offer insta-scholarship for a certain LSAT?

Postby reasonabledoubt » Fri Feb 05, 2010 3:32 am

First, I'd like to say that I hope your cycles have served you all well and brought you many terrific choices. Mine has only brought a few and none that I'm completely in love with as of yet. (no scholarship, anywhere)

Pessimism and an unpredictable finality to my cycle fills my heart with despair. I may need to work another year and do all this over again next year after I actually embark on a disciplined course of lsat preparation. Anyways, my question is: (please don't link me to LSN for a data-mining expedition) Which schools do you know of that might give an insta-scholarship for a certain LSAT score and a 3ish gpa? Ton of W/E, Excellent LOR's, mercurial PS, etc.

The answer I'm looking for: XXX School b/c of this proof and these reasons will likely give anyone with a 16X or 17X score and stats like yours a half or full scholarship. Hit it don't babysit it. Good luck.

Then I'll say: Thanks a ton! You're the best TLS'er by far! :D

Cooley gives insta-scholarships for a 149 LSAT, or meeting a certain index score (ranging from 3.0/150 to 4.0/135).

WUSTL seems to throw $$$$ at practically every 170 applicant. They're notorious for trying to buy high LSAT scores.

Emory and WUSTL tend to offer large scholarships to anyone with an LSAT in the high-160s. Last year, a 166 would get you $84k at Emory.

Goddamn, I say GOD DAMN!

I really thought Emory's LSAT-whore number would've been higher than 166

Whether it was your intent or not, I can't look at this without imagining Foghorn Leghorn saying it.

Good stuff - well, sure enough, someone WOULD have to pay me to live in St. Louis for nearly 1/3 of a decade. Woostle is a good enough school to make this interesting though....

These two are probably your best bet for good schools with scholarships for high LSATs. The fact is most T1 schools don't automatically give out scholarships for certain #s, but those two come closest.

IU-Bloomington seems to throw a lot of money at people in the 164-165 range, regardless of all other factors. It usually doesn't approach half-scholarship level, though.

Yeah, and you can also try UIUC for scholarship $$. Not quite as good as the others, but they do seem to give out money rather generously on occasion.
