No, not at all. It's like you took the schools in order of ranking and gave them flat increments.
Cornell is a maybe. Fordham will probably accept, but it's hard to predict how much. Brooklyn and Cardozo are peers and are likely to give similar offers, though Dozo appears to have offered to more people than Brooklyn these past two cycles, though who knows how long they can keep it up. St. John and Hofstra likewise will probably make similar offers.

Go do some homework, instead of making things up. It'll serve you in the long run

Sidenote on Brooklyn: When I applied there (though I had more split scores than you) they gave me zero money. But when I rejected their offer they upped it to 10k over a full ride. Something to keep in mind with them.

Oh i did do my homework I just don't know how to figure out the predicted cost. I just did based on where I was in the percentiles.
60% = 35% off
70% = 55% off
75% = 85% off
90% = Free
98% = Stipend

I'm really confused as to whether OP is asking for advice with actual offers or just tossing hypotheticals at us.

Don't go to law school. There are enough neurotic, annoying law students as is.

Get a few actual offers and come back. There is literally zero value is debating a bunch of offers you don't have.

If you can't figure out how much money you'll be spending on your law school education, you shouldn't get a law school education.

You're overestimating Fordham's scholarship. 165/3.8 got me 15k/yr, and it appears that the only person on lsn to get more than 15k/yr with a 165 had a 4.x GPA. Your numbers indicate closer to 10k/yr.

If you actually get those exact offers, and this poll suddenly becomes useful in any way, I'll pay your tuition for a year.
