Silly Question

Postby red_alertz » Thu Feb 10, 2011 1:36 pm

When I visit this forum, especially in the "admitted, denial, waitlist" section, seems almost everyone who posted got admitted with scholarships, I know this forum is not a representative sample, but about how many ppl in general are admitted with scholarships? I have a horrible GPA so I am not hoping for any, admittance would be more than enough for me, do the highly qualified students who receive scholarships are often admitted first?

If you log onto LSAC.org, you can find information for each law school re: number or percentage of incoming students with scholarships, along with the average scholarship or grant amount.

No. If you apply early, you have a better chance of getting money because there will be a smaller pot by the end. But admissions are done on a rolling basis and you probably have a better shot of getting in if you apply early, as well.
