I'm pretty sure scholarships are purely based on numbers. If you're over their 75 percentiles (or somewhere around there), you'll get a Dean's Scholarship which is about 2300 a semester. I don't think they give out anything else.
talked to admissions and they said merit based scholarships range anywhere from 3/4k -13/14k a year. I am 158/3.89 and they said to expect a scholarship in the "upper end" of those amounts.
I assure you that this is not true. My numbers were similar and I had a higher LSAT. The stats for incoming students hasn't changed. All I got was a Dean's Merit Scholarship. (4600 per year) No one in my section has a scholarship for an amount greater than this unless it's from an outside source. They have other scholarships but they aren't distributed until fall of 2L year based on 1L grades. Whoever told you that was completely deceiving you.
