I'm out of state btw. It also says to supplement this I can apply for an LRA position the second and third year to get the in state tuition (and thus the full ride), plus what they call a small stipend.
So my question is, how hard to obtain/good are these LRA positions? Should I assume this is a full rise scholarship, or are LRA spots really competitive to secure? Do I even want be an LRA in the first place? I hope this is the right place to ask, as I wasn't finding much on my google hunt.
I am in the same boat, but my scholarship email said
"During your second and third years of law school, you will have the opportunity to work as a Merit Scholar Law Research Assistant (LRA)."
I took this as meaning that we already have the job, since it says we will have the opportunity to work, not the opportunity to apply to work, but you can always email the admissions office if you are still unsure.
Ok yep my email said the same thing, it does sound like the position is ours if we want it.
