I know the lower tier schools do, but what are the chances of getting scholly money at the more desirable schools with lsat below the magical TLS number of, 160 ? This is a very significant dilemma for me and retake retake .... begins to rear its ugly head.
The chances are really not that high that people with our LSATs will get scholly money. But when I applied, I applied to the schools I wanted to go to that are good for my preferred market. I want to go to a very strong regional school, or perhaps even a nationally respected school, and with a 157 I will not get the scholly offers that I would get in the T2. In fact, the only T2 school I applied to gave me a scholly, but the rest of them I have yet to receive anything (though the cycle is not over yet). For me, I want to be accepted and attend a strong school, which overshadows acceptances at lower tiered schools with money, but that's my personal choice.
