From what I have heard Uk is not very generous with Scholarships. I didn't recieve a scholarship so I don't really know when you will find out. I'm sure being in the top 75 percentile gives you a good shot at getting a partial scholarship.
I had a 3.9/160, from out of state, and got in-state tuition, which is pretty legit. Made UK the obvious choice from a financial perspective (especially compared to Wake Forest and George Mason, woof).
Now that I only have a civ pro final left (obviously I'm avoiding studying for it, joinder makes me want to shoot myself), a few thoughts on my experience at UK:
I. Love. Lexington. Coming from a small-town undergrad and having grown up just outside a big city, Lex is a good compromise and I feel like I've been able to explore quite a bit since I moved here in August. Kroger on Richmond Road for the win, btw. Also, as a lifelong UK fanatic, getting to go to Rupp on a regular basis is awesome. I'm like a little kid going in there (and going tomorrow night, after my last final HAHA).
As for law school itself, I enjoy learning the material. Frost (contracts) is the bomb dot com. The building is old and atrocious (what was that smell in the library at the beginning of November?! good night nurse), but the upside is that there are windows everywhere and classroom chairs are, for the most part, comfortable. Once you sit in class you will understand just how important that is. For the most part, the students and the profs are all ready and willing to assist, which is comforting.
So...yeah, I really like UK. a lot. I have zero regrets about coming here. And obviously I don't have my grades back and so maybe I bombed everything, but this is the right place for me to be. Anybody with questions can feel free to contact me if you want, the admissions process is scary and generally awful. haha. I even have a great mechanic up here (my car is such a POS) and I can comment on churches, neighborhoods, any of that. (This sounds like a recruiting pitch lol)
