chances w/ merit scholarships?

Postby gsmith » Wed Jun 08, 2011 5:20 pm

I have a 3.74 GPA and a 175 LSAT. I'm currently at a top 35 undergrad university and I'm trying to figure out which law schools to apply to. I'm looking at all T-14 plus UCLA, Vandy, BC, BU, W&M, UNC, Notre Dame, and Fordham. Which schools do I have a chance of getting into with merit scholarships?

I think you'd have a chance at admission with money at CCN on down

+1. I'd ignore all those extras except UCLA and Vandy unless you really have a burning desire to go to school in South Bend for some reason. Personally I'd ignore like... Cornell and GULC too, but I'm absurdly lazy.

Yeah, MVPCCN are all likely with large amounts of cash

Which of those T-14 schools would be more generous with merit scholarships? Cornell's website doesn't even say anything about them. Neither does GULC or NYU, besides public interest scholarships.

Not sure about the criteria, but I think you have a shot at one of MVP's named full-rides. Also NU give large amounts of money

I have similar numbers but slightly lower LSAT (173). Got money everywhere but Harvard (WL, admitted), Chicago (admitted), NYU (admitted), Boalt (WL) and UVA (WL). Scholarships ranged from full rides outside the T14 to about 40% - 60% tuition for Michigan on up. Good luck!
