Minimum GPA Needed For A T-14 Fullride?

Postby cantyoloforever » Tue Feb 28, 2017 11:07 pm

What is the lowest GPA one can have, and still be able to earn a full-ride from a t-14 school?

I'm browsing MyLSN's 3.7 results, and it looks like the best they can do is earn a full at Duke or UVA with a 172 or 173. For higher ranked schools, no matter how high the LSAT score is, scholarships were only awarded as partials. Does that seem correct?

you generally want to be above both 75%s for a substantial scholarship.

I have a 3.7 and got a little over half tuition with 75%th LSAT at Cornell and Michigan. 90K at Duke for median LSAT.

I was waitlisted at all of those schools with the same stats :(

I had high 3.6/low 3.7 (not sure what they saw bc they got a transcript update) and I got a full scholarship to Michigan. Kind of mediocre money everywhere else to be honest, though.

What was your score, if you don't mind me asking?

But you've been having really really really good results as a whole though, and ppl with same stats as me have received varying amounts of aid at Duke, etc. so it goes to show you that numbers are only necessary, not sufficient

Interesting. I've been waitlisted at 8 of the t13 with a 3.7 and a 169....shows how much each point counts I guess

I think I just really outperformed my numbers (though still haven't heard from HYS) because of my softs/recs/essays.

Im not even sure how many T14 fullride scholarships are available. Does anyone know? I've never looked. I would include ED NU.
