Bloomington Scholly

I see they give almost their entire class 120K. Does this require them to compete to keep this money or are they really that generous?

There is a good standing stipulation (the best kind) attached to the scholarship if you were wondering.

Oh, fair stipulations is good to hear. Law school numbers seems sort of skewed in regards to numbers. Any idea if a 3.4/166 has a shot at some cash?

yes, but only if you apply soon or already applied. I applied late with similar numbers and got WL/denied

Last year they gave the schollies to anyone with a 166 but I thinly they raised their median to 167 this year. In either case apply now. Like right now.

166 was the entering class's median.

I think there will be few (if any?) schools that will actually raise their medians with this year, it is a short list that will, and Indiana won't be one of them. Nothing has changed for them. If they could have raised it to 167, they would have done so last year.
