Scholarships at G-Town, Temple, and Rutgers-Camden?

Postby JDHopeful » Thu Jun 10, 2010 3:14 pm

I'm about $90,000 in debt from undergrag (dont wanna talk about it)

I wanna go to law school, but obv. would like to get some scholarship $.

My GPA is around 3.67, and my LSAT has been testing around 165-170 (I'm taking the Oct Test and will be killing studying for it in the upcoming months)

That said, I want to go to one of the three: Georgetown, Temple, or Rutgers-Camden

At each school, what LSAT would I need to get some money, or a full ride?

Thanks!

At Gtown your going to need at least 169 if not a 170 for money (they're pretty stingy). Temple, I bet you could pull close if not a a full ride at 164/5, Rutgers would be about the same. Just wondering, why these 3 schools? Theres such a big gap btwn them. If you get a 168+, If I were you and I wanted wanted money at a good school I'd conisder doing ED at GW. If you get it its a full ride plus first year housing.
Regardless, like the above poster said, your setting your sights too low. With a 167+ you'll get money to some T20 schools and close if not full rides to schools 20 and above. (Indiana bloomington is coming to mind). Try this site to see what others with those numbers have recieved http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com

If you stay in that LSAT range, you should be solid for Temple. I was in that range, 3.7 GPA, and I didn't get into Georgetown.

Edit: By solid, I mean full or almost full scholarship.

I don't understand how do you go from Georgetown to Temple and skip every other law school along the way?

Yeah, definitely add a bunch of schools to your list. I'd suggest Vanderbilt for sure; they're easier to get into than Georgetown and give out lots of money.

You would need a 170 just to get in. 175+ for any significant money.
