GULC and GW seem like good additions to your list.

I hesitated on GULC because of the app fee, but it may be worth it. During the beginning of this process I didn't have a clear picture of what schools would be good targets for my numbers, so now I feel like I've overlooked a lot of possibilities. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll check out GW as well.

You can always try emailing the admissions office and asking for a fee waiver, if that's your concern.

I did - denied, haha. Which is why I was on the fence about applying. I'm not sure if it was my numbers or if they're just not generous with them.

My understanding is GULC is stingy - they like money over there in NW DC. Note that their app fee is $5 more than pretty much every other school. It's because they're assholes.

A friend of mine goes to GW. He told me that 3.8/170 is pretty much a full ride, so I think you have a great shot at a lot of money.

Also try Fordham and Cardozo (the latter would almost definitely be full ride).

Good to know! I'll give GW a shot.

Thanks! I had considered Fordham, but didn't know how competitive my numbers would be this cycle. COL in NYC seemed too high to justify Fordham without substantial money.

I'm concerned that they don't seem to offer a stipend. Although they're #12 in their Judging the Law Schools rankings, so I guess I can overlook that.
