Sounds about right. Iowa resident with median LSAT and above median GPA.
Suprised me with so much money. same i got with a 168/3.9. Seemed a little high.
So you think because you go the maximum scholarship available, this friend doesn't deserve to get that too? Iowa may not be the best fit for you breh.
But seriously. That's the maximum scholarship. I know it seems like a wide range of numbers that get offered it, but that's because all of those exceed the criteria for getting that scholarship. The truth of this matter is that your numbers are too high for Iowa, so if you "appropriate" scholarship divestment that fits with your mental image, you should be in the WUSTL/Michigan/UT threads.
Not trying to be a dick, but I hate when people diminish other people's exciting news because they are "better" but got something "equal."

Will scholly info come in a later package?
It's been a while since we discussed this, so I'll give a little more detail than exactly what you asked. Iowa tries to get acceptances out ASAP so you know if it is one of your options. Scholarship info comes later (if it comes), but that time can vary. If you are a top-tier scholarship candidate, you may know within a week or two. If not, the scholarships "trickle down" as the higher "index" (see
the first page http://www.top-law-schools.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=166010
for index score information) candidates withdraw. So, depending on your numbers, you could hear anytime between now and July.
ETA: If you want to post your numbers or PM them to me or Typ3, we can help you figure out where you fall as far as scholarship likelihood.
ETA: Whoops, I guess it was last years thread that had the index stuff. Link above. How time flies when you're having... fun? Yeah. We'll go with that.
