Clearly the higher LSATs are over-represented, and it would seem logical that a higher percentage of such people would enjoy scholarship offers than is perhaps the norm. Right?


That is true, so maybe LSN isn't a good place like I thought.. Either way, we'll find out in a few days (hopefully good news :) )

It's fine, just not an accurate sample of the overall pool, which we already pretty much knew. Here's hoping to money!

Getting around that (i.e. 48k-60k) would pretty much end my cycle.... congrats!

Thanks everyone... I feel very lucky. Thank you TLS for all the wisdom and laughter of the last 10-odd months... and good luck to those still waiting for acceptances/scholly offers.

That's awesome! Getting a great scholly from one of your top choices must feel awesome!

At this point I don't really know. I got a finalist invite for one of NYU's named schollies, so that would be a game changer since it's a full ride. But if I don't get that it's nice to know that I have a good-sized cushion elsewhere.

I'm pretty sure most people have cars. If you have visited you would understand why. Also, ASW mentions most people have a car.

@lawmonkey.

Damn! but not surprised... I'm more surprised by my 54k than by your 90k (given that Duke is my highest-ranked acceptance, whereas you've broken T6).
