LSAT and scholarships in the upper range (75%+)

Postby gjsi222 » Mon May 25, 2015 8:25 pm

I only plan on attending law school if it doesn't bury me in impossible debt. If I currently have a 170, would a 173 or 175 significantly affect scholarship outcomes for schools like UNC (157 - 161 - 163) or UK (median 157)?

Depending on what your gpa is, a 170 would give you a very good chance at a full ride from either of those schools I am thinking. if you did get a 173-175 and you have something like a 3.8 or 3.9 then you are looking at a full ride at some T14 schools. anyone feel free to correct me if i am wrong :)

I got lowballed at a couple schools that I was way above 75th GPA and 8 points about their median LSAT. I didn't even get 75 percent tuition to that school (a private law school in the region I'm from). But I checked lsn religiously and it seems something like this is an anomaly, so I wouldn't worry honestly.

Edit: yea as first response said, shoot for the stars OP w/ your numbers

My GPA is ~3.4 (biology, good softs, 2yr WE) and I don't have biglaw aspirations. I'll likely apply to the lower half of the T14 but I'm following the free money.
