172 and LSDAS 3.33

Postby rghneck016 » Mon Feb 21, 2011 5:54 pm

Applying to Fordham, Alabama, Baylor, Loyola-New Orleans, Brooklyn, Cincinnati, St. John's and Temple. The long list is because I applied anywhere that gave me a fee waiver. I have looked at the TLS stats for each school but am wondering if anyone could provide some insight on the probability of scholarship money from any of the listed schools. Also any suggestions for other schools to look into would be appreciated.

This.

(unlike SATs and college, the LSAT is a bigger factor than your grades in law school admission)

I was thinking of applying to some T14, but I need scholarship money so 'just getting in' isn't good enough, sorry if that sounds pompous. What are my chances of getting money from Fordham or Alabama? The TLS stats are so varied it's hard to tell

You need to MAJORLY aim higher.

Check out this site: http://www.lawschoolnumbers.com and this site: http://www.lawschoolpredictor.com/

LSN can give you a good idea of where you'd be looking at getting some $. LSP goes strictly by #'s and doesn't factor in the in-state vs. OOS, a school's preference for higher GPA's, etc.

If I were you, I'd apply to Northwestern if you have work experience, the lower T14 (you could ED somewhere for a higher chance, but you'd be paying sticker) and T20's in places that you'd like to be. Then, see what happens with acceptances and $.

WUSTL will throw $ at your LSAT, as will others.

I have slightly worse numbers than you, 172/3.22, and WUSTL threw 84k at me. I'm still pending at Bama, and that's the extent of our overlap, but you really should aim higher. Almost everyone needs scholarship money. Really think about it and decide whether you want to go to a significantly worse school than one of the T10s you could probably get into just to take out 120k in loans instead of ~190k.

If scholarship money is important to you I'd aim at the more generous schools. For top schools, off the top of my head I can think of WUSTL, GW, IU-B, Wisconsin, but there are plenty of others.

Fordham is definitely not generous with money, in fact they are pretty damn stingy. I'd say your chances of money from them is pretty slim.

Any aid that Fordham gives you will be nuked by the COL compared to the other schools on your list, and as pointed out above they are stingy.

WUSTL gives fee waivers by request, I would consider them a viable target for a good scholarship at a solid school.

Seconded. OP should look at CCNMVP...he'll probably get generous money at Cornell.
