3.4/164 looking for a full ride

Postby nireca » Sat Oct 30, 2010 2:01 am

Are there any decent schools that will give me a full ride with these numbers? I'd like to stay in CA but I'm open to suggestions.

This is very far from California, but those would be great numbers for the University at Buffalo. Great all around school, very average law school, and the only major player in the Buffalo market so if you dominate school you'll land some decently sweet gigs. UB is a lot better school than its ranking indicates, IMO.

I'm very limited in various law school knowledge, but I know a ton about UB because it's my undergrad/grad, and I absolutely love it here. Won't go here for law school, but not because it isn't a decent school.

Look into it, PM me if you have any questions about the place.

I had a 3.2, 165 and only got 5K a year from UB. They suck when it comes to scholarship money, so I wouldn't hold out hope on that one.

But, the sticker price at UB is dirt cheap. So any scholly there is great. I know the OP asked for a full scholly, but the money he could get at UB + cheap Cost of Living wouldn't be too bad.

Give WVU a shot, especially since they are the only LS in the state. Or maybe Stetson with their high specialty rankings. It's tough to get a decent full ride with those numbers

I know. I think at this point I've accepted the fact that I'm going to have to retake in December.

Would it be worth it to apply to some of these schools in hopes of getting lucky with something close to full ride? I know it doesn't count for much, but I have really strong softs with working at a firm and a nonprofit.
