Full Ride

Postby lawschools9 » Fri Jan 04, 2013 10:13 pm

My question is I am studying to take the lsat in February 2013 to apply for law school in fall of 2013. I have a 3.7 GPA and have been scoring between 159 and 164 on my practice tests. I will be applying once I get my february lsat score back which is late in the application process which hurts my scholarship chances. with all that considered does anyone have any ideas on schools I could get close to a full ride scholarship at? I am willing to consider lower t2 schools and even t3 and t4 schools. In addition to academics I have 2 years of impressive work history and lots have been involved with lots of service groups and such.

Don't do this to yourself. Take the LSAT in June and apply next cycle. You'll have a lot more time to study and get your apps in early. With your GPA, you could get scholly money in the T14 if you score high enough on the LSAT. Why ruin your life because you aren't willing to wait one year?

Remember that "full ride" is often contingent on being in the top 1/3rd of your class or something stupid like that. Practice up for June, take it then, apply next cycle. With a 3.7 and a 170~, you'll have your choice of full rides to T1.

There are basically no T2/T3s worth attending. Especially random ones in other states.

Taking the test in June and applying in august is a much better option..

Go to http://www.mylsn.info and plug in some numbers and you'll see who is getting full rides with your gpa/hypothetical LSAT combo. 169 or thereabouts should do the trick at Minnesota at least.

Where are you from/where do you want to work? The answer to this question is very important and people on this site can steer you in a good direction if they have a little more background info.
