Ummm t1 is too broad? Full ride seems hard to get, my best 0L regurgitation is 175+?

A full ride to a T30 (WUSTL, IUB) needs a score in the upper 160s I think. IUB gave out full rides to everyone with 166 or higher last cycle.

Thanks. Was there a gpa cutoff for the full ride?

Anyone know what stats I need to get a full ride at schools like USC, Pepperdine, and Loyola?

For Loyola, you would need stats that would get you comfortably into both USC and UCLA. You would still be looking at the top 30 percent stipulation to retain the full scholarship, however. So, with a 3.5, I suspect you would need at least 169-171 on your LSAT.

I do not think a full ride to USC is possible with a 3.5 GPA.

Not to be a stickler, but IUB gave out almost full rides to everybody with 166 or above. I think it ended up being 40k/yr. Tuition for next year is probably going to be around $44k-$45k. May be high subsequent year, but scholarship doesn't increase. You'd probably be looking at less than $20k of debt from tuition. If you're looking for truly full tuition, you'll probably have to above both 75th percentiles for IUB.

Not sure about WUSTL.

It's not difficult to get huge scholarships at pepperdine or loyola. With your gpa a 165 should definitely do it. But scholarships at those schools suck anyways because the gpa stipulations are ridiculous.

Yeah. Although it's not a huge difference, I got 40,000 with 177/3.35 from IUB, so it does appear as though GPA needs to be a little higher.

Indiana-Bloomington seems to give $40,000 per year scholarships to those with an LSAT of 166 or higher & a GPA of 2.8 & above according to the information shared on lawschoolnumbers.com.
Many with sub-3.0 GPAs received the $120,000 scholarship offer if they had a 166 or higher LSAT score.

Don't apply to these midwest schools if you want Cali (by the possible law schools you mentions) or the southwest (by your undergrad).

170/171 should get you some kind of scholarship at Texas/USC (and also a shot at small $ from lower T14)
168/169 should get you some $$ at Davis/Hastings
165/166/167 should get you some $$ at ASU/Arizona
162/163/164 for $$ at Loyola/USD/other Southwest T2s

full rides are not offered very often (they are usually reserved for a few ppl) at Pepperdine and LLS. They offer something just under full-ride though (87k?) I believe. But for both schools, you need to be in a spot where UCLA and USC would both want you, as someone posted above.
