I assumed that it wasn't a holistic, 'he seems like a 78k kind of guy' sort of thing, but I was surprised that, number one, there's no leeway (3.59/180 gets no-offered), and number two, that they were so open about where it is. It's 3.6/168 for non-URMs, by the way.
So if you have a 167 does that mean you'll never get a dime, even after negotiation? Im 3.8 Gpa so that limit seems super arbitrary, and kind of unfair. Oh well.[/quote]
I've heard several stories from current UT Law students that they were able to negotiate scholarships with 166s, 167s, and high LSATS/lowGPAs through the scholarship matching program. I believe those cuts-offs are for the initial scholarships and they'll seriously consider other offers for candidates slightly under during the 168/3.6 distinction during scholarship matching.
