GWU gives out a bunch of huge scholarships.
Fordham and Chicago not so much. It depends more on your application as a whole, though.

Cooley. Get above a 163 (i.e. have a pulse) and you'll get a full ride.

idk what rank you're concerned with but I've seen some stats that say Wake Forest gives out the most scholarships for a private school

Someone has got to have the thread link? Search some, we actually have a fantastic thread here somewhere with stats on the most generous scholarship schools. I actually hit those schools hard with apps. I did receive very generous offers from most of them. I did get dinged by one school though :evil: :lol: It happens.

Found the thread in my bookmarks.

I found this thread to be pretty darn accurate across the schools I applied to:

Check out page three of the thread for an awesome chart. 8)

Bad idea. Most Cooley scholly recipients eventually lose it because of the harsh grading curve and dog-eat-dog environment. This is true of many T4 schools, actually.

I never said it was a good idea. But I think Cooley and other TTT schools are by far the most "scholly friendly" in that they give scholarships to anyone who has mastered the art of breathing.

Wake, Alabama, Texas, Emory, Washington and Lee, and WUSTL.

But, watch out for offers that have gpa requirments attached.
