Why? I am new to TLS. Sorry for any stupid questions or postings...Do you mean it is too unrealistic?

No money, I'd say a 50/50 shot at ED. Good luck...

A 3.93/163 person has already been admitted ED this year so I'd say you have a chance

If you ED, it lessens your chance of getting a scholarship because they know that you're bound to go there at sticker. So no, EDing will not increase your chances of a scholarship and it will most likely hurt them.

That being said, I'd honestly be surprised if you didn't get in ED. Just be prepared to pay full price.

You are right that hes not likely to get much money with his numbers and with ED.
BUT, you are wrong that he only has a 50/50 shot. The following is the LSP result for his numbers w/o ED.

I would say your being overly pessimistic. More like 75/25.


OP; use law school predictor to look at your general chances and law school numbers to look at more specific results.

If you used LSN, you'd see that ED dudes don't get money. At all.

I do not dispute this-- I was disputing the 50/50 shot part.
