I think law school admissions are not as black and white as rankings, gpa, and LSAT numbers. Each school has its own philosophy of admitting students and dishing out scholarships. SCU is a unique tier 2 law school with a reputable overall university environment, boutique personalization, underrated school spirit and a dainty campus. And they know that. I don't think they are as much GPA and LSAT whores as most other law schools. Their rankings could rise substantially if they conformed more. Personally I would choose SCU over any other law school below the top 30, including Davis and Hastings, for all the things I mentioned earlier. I just don't think amount of scholarships always corresponds to rankings and numbers. In fact, many top tier schools have similar traditions.
I'm not sure what you base these assertions on. SCU is definitely a solid regional school and I respect your views on its unique strengths, but I have not seen any evidence whatsoever that SCU focuses less on numbers than other selective T2 schools. SCU offers large scholarships/fellowships but, according to TLS and LSN, clearly only applicants with the best numbers are targeted (typically those with numbers well above SCU's 75th percentiles). And a significant portion of these folks eventually turn the school down for something better, again according to TLS and LSN. I like the school too, but let's not get carried away with the idea that it doesn't conform to common admission practices for no good reason. And we should definitely not jump to the conclusion that SCU could magically raise its ranking if it wanted to simply by focusing on numbers because, for one, LSAT and GPA are relatively small components of the most often cited holistic ranking methodologies, like the one published by US News, etc.
