Indiana, Illinois, Iowa & Wisconsin should offer substantial scholarship money.

You can go to a lot of places for free. Cooley is one of them. So I think maybe you need to narrow down your criteria...

Pitt doesn't offer full rides. They offer, with few exceptions, no more than half tuition (14k). Hope that helps.

I'm from the midwest. I don't mind moving, though. I have no real care where I end up practicing.

Its so funny, I know Pitt doesn't offer full rides now through TLS... Since I live in Pittsburgh I hear a lot of people talk about it, I've heard 3 individuals mention turning down a full ride from Pitt, it takes so much for me to not call them a fucking liar in front of everyone lol

from: --LinkRemoved--
This program is designed to address the critical need to recruit and retain African American graduate and professional students, and to ultimately enhance the African American presence in the University. It will provide full in-state tuition to one academically outstanding applicant. The scholarship committee reviews all accepted applicants in the spring and the award will be made prior to our April 15th deposit deadline.


so there's at least one

What about a white male who is probably the richest person I know who had a 3.7 / 159?

Lol, possible but none of these individuals really had the numbers to get a full ride even if Pitt did hand them out

Then you need to go to a Midwestern school or a top national school.


T1 Big Ten schools. Maybe I'll see you on campus at one of the places because its where I'm applying also.

I'm from PGH but don't hear anyone saying they have full rides to Pitt. I doubt someone with a 3.7/159 at a school with a 161 median is getting a full ride to a school that offers up to half tuition. Did you see a copy of the letter/email with the full scholarship offer? That would be interesting if you did.
