Want to hear about that $$$, but I have a feeling that there is not much left for them to dish out after reading prior posts.
IT doesn't work like that. People with higher scores get bigger discounts and those will lower scores get less and subsidize everyone else.
So people with similar GPAs/LSATs can expect to receive roughly the same amount of scholarship money, even if some applied early and others applied late in the cycle?
Yup. The way that schools do financial aid is by coming up with a "policy" usually around the same time as they just begin taking applications, and set the policy for use during the admissions cycle (of course as the cycle progresses and there are new developments they may tweak it, but usually only minorly). The policy is almost always just a grid of GPAs and LSATs, and at the intersection of your stats is your scholarship.
Edit: and if schools have specific goals, e.g. more URMs, more out of state, etc, they may use a separate grid for those applicants.
