scholarshis and medians

Postby grungy89 » Thu Oct 10, 2013 8:07 pm

I know my questions seem to bug some people on here, but I have another. Is it a general rule that scholarship offers will get better and better as you apply to lower ranked schools and you get further above the median #'s? For example I'm at medians for baylor 160/3.75, which offered $x (it will still be expensive) and hoping Texas Tech, where I'm several points above LSAT median, will offer better $$ ( i think their medians are around 157/3.6) Is that what to expect or are each school's scholarship totals different enough to not be predictable?

As a general rule yes but things can vary quite a bit across any group of schools. Go to lawschoolnumbers.com and see what kinds of scholarships people were getting. Some schools will give a full ride to anyone just above their median, others won't give full rides to anyone.

Also make sure to check out lstscorereports.com and look at the employment prospects of the schools you're considering. A slight LSAT improvement could get you into UT where the job prospects are much stronger.
