I was under the impression that NW interviewed all of their admitted students. I would assume not interviewing would hurt your chances

Obviously it wouldn't be a reliable source, but it would be nice to just get a sense of when other users are getting offers and what the "going rate" looks like for this cycle. There's gotta be some sort of search feature that's easier than going through users' profiles manually to see if they've entered in scholarship information.

I've just been refreshing the pages of schools I care about and sorting their "applicants" tab by $$$. Dunno if there's an easier way or not.

even if your intent is to use them as a bargaining chip, why wouldn't you submit the best application you can in order to maximize your chances/scholarship?

That's the way I would go about doing it. Choose the school you're curious about, then choose the $$$ column as the way to organize. I don't think there's an area that just lets you look for scholly info. If there is, I haven't seen it.

Where do y'all think is the cutoff to be labeled a "top law school?"

T14? T20? T25? or any school specifically??

Probably T14. But any top regional school carries some prestige for sure. BC, Vandy, UT, UCLA, etc

I see you really like BC haha not sure if it belongs with the others you listed (I see BC more in line with Fordham) but still a great school!

For me personally, if I see someone get admitted anywhere in the top 20, I consider them to be going to a top law school. This is probably due to my own personal experience. People at my undergrad tend to score in the 150s and go to TT state schools, so when someone says they're attending UT, Vandy, Wash U - I consider them to be going to a top school because I'm comparing it to the rest of my peers.
