Scholarship Money

Postby colorado89 » Fri Jan 07, 2011 12:42 pm

So I just received my December LSAT and I'm now going to submit all my applications today. I have a 3.4 GPA and a 167 LSAT. If I apply this late, will this hurt my chances for scholarship money? Note: I'm applying to Loyola LA, USD, Pepperdine, and Tulane. Thanks

I don't know enough about the specific schools to give a direct answer but in general schools tend to use up most of their funds for the earliest admits. You would prob be in the last few batches since you're applying now but schools will also tend to give a pretty good scholarship to people who have numbers that are really good for the school so check medians and 75th percentiles to gauge your chances. Also, most law school sites have a scholarship page that outlines what they offer.

I think you will be fine at Loyola. They are pretty early in their process and seem to be doing acceptances first. With your numbers I think you will likely get accepted with $$ there.

You should be fine.
