yeah they all are. the old stipulation that is reflected in those past statistics is top 40%. the new one for these scholarships this year is top 50%. i spoke to Dean Brady about this and was told that if the past numbers were based on a top half instead of top 40 percent stipulation that the scholarship retention rates from the past few years would be around 70-75% rather than 50-55%. she also volunteered the fact that bama does not stack scholarship recipients in sections and that they even distribute kids amongst sections evenly/fairly based on lsat/gpa
just email and ask about (i did), or call. the law school seems aware of this and i think has been trying to make an effort to make it less likely that people will lose them.
id call or email about any concerns. theyre really nice and they know better than any of us do
