Just to add a slight correction, last year the maximum was $30k/year, or $90k total
note: Fordham gives out two full rides per year



Where did you obtain this information?

Do you work for Fordham in any capacity? I'm just curious, because for you to have that info seems pretty strange.[/quote]

Yo ajax, just vouching for dingbat saw this pop up on the latest posts link..

I received $30K/year last year and before i ultimately turned it down, i asked for more and was told my the assistant dean that was the most they could possibly give out...

Ahh there we go. Thanks TLswag!

That is actually a REALLY high award for your LSAT score. They DO care more about your LSAT than your GPA. I sincerely doubt you can get more.

You can try, though! If you receive more from a similarly ranked school, call them near the acceptance deposit due date.

The GPA probably earned money, but that LSAT doesn't.

Logically speaking, a school might be willing to pay X for a high GPA and Y for a high LSAT; having both a high LSAT and a high GPA could then get X+Y, but being limited on either side means being capped at X or Y.

True. I meant it more in the way of a 169/3.3 will get more money than a 164/4.0.

I'll bet you 500 dollars you are in. Care to hedge?

The way I see it is that there are fewer 166s out there than 3.67s (Fordhams 75%s). Scarcity has value. Also, applications are down another 20% this cycle, so we could very likely see a decrease in those 75%s.

If I were you I wouldn't be worried about getting in. I would be thinking about whether or not I want to pay sticker for Fordham, but that is for another thread...

If I did get in, you don't think I'd get the 15 or 30k discount?

You probably won't get the 30k discount. For that both your scores need to be above (or at least close to) both 75%s

Sorry, I was thinking $30k/year, not $30k total

166 is a weird score. 163-165 you're in the mid 60s, 167-169 you're in the upper 60s. 166 and you're in the 60s twilight zone.
