Here I am looking at sticker price basically being told I have less of a chance at doing well than the girl next to me who got a full ride. Other than that, the school was nice. Still tho, it left a bitter taste in my mouth.
Why would that piss you off? All schools give merit scholarships based on the index created from GPA/LSAT numbers. It's also been documented year after year that higher LSAT generally means a better chance of doing well in 1L year.
First off, you had to be there. He was very matter o fact about it and it just came off rude. Even the girl with the full ride made a comment about that to me (and she didn't know I had no offer). I am sure there is a correlation between performance and LSAT but they include GPA in the index and don't consider your major or UG school you went to. Had I known I was going to go to LS right out of UG I would have picked communications as my major and gotten a 4.0....
