How many fullride offers are made each year?

Postby icpb » Fri Mar 09, 2012 11:03 am

How many Hamilton offers are made each year? 50? 100? 150?
How many Rubinstein offers are made each year? 50? 100? 150?

I think 20 Rubensteins. I'm not sure about Hamiltons

ABA data says 2/590 students get full tuition at Chicago, and 36/1310 at Columbia. Dunno what that translates to per year since it may not be simply 1/3.

Is their data wrong, though? I pulled this from the LSAC website's ABA Law School Data.

They have to offer more than 20 to get 20 to accept, and I'm not sure they even found 20 people to take their full ride last year.

I believe IUB has a class of 250, so they admit 1,000, so at least 1,000.

Can you give us the link to this data? Is it for this year (2011-12)?

Last year was the first year Rubensteins were given out, so unless Chicago gave out full rides before the Ruby program, the 2 of 590 students would all be 1Ls. It still seems like a very low number; it's hard to believe the Ruby has such low yield. Maybe students turn down Rubensteins partly because it's a new program that doesn't have the reputation that other T14 named scholarships or HYS do.

I don't think I can directly link it, but I got it by logging on to LSAC's website then pulling up each school's ABA data individually (search school -> ABA data). I believe it is data from 2010-2011, but I couldn't confirm.

It's from 2010-11.

I'm assuming that means 36 matriculants (so probably approximately 12 in each grade)? I would be interested to see how many Hamilton offers are made each admissions cycle, though that information probably isn't publicly available.

Wow, 7.1% of NYU is on full rides. That's like 33 people a class.

I'm really surprised at how low the figure is. 11 people reported being offered Hamiltions on LSN last cycleand that is just a sliver of the applicant pool--206 out of a little over 1000 acceptances reported an acceptance, so roughly 20% of acceptances are represented--particularly given not everyone reports funding (though usually LSN tends to represent the higher end of the admissions scale). 26 reported being offered Hamiltions for class of 2013! And 12 for class of 2012.

I'd be surprised if the number of offers is less than 50 per year for Hamiltons.
