Scholarship Level vs. Class Rank

Postby mstatelawdawg » Thu Mar 30, 2017 2:53 pm

What correlation is there, if any, between scholarship amount and class rank?

Are students with full scholarships more likely to get a higher class rank?

Are students with no scholarship more likely to get a lower class rank?

I am a 0L with a full ride to Alabama law. I've got too much time on my hands so I've started to overthink law school. Advice welcomed.

Depends

Don't go unless you want to work at a small firm/local gov position in Alabama long term (and, ideally, are from there). Your class rank likely won't matter for those types of jobs, but keeping debt down will.
