Trying to be smart about funding and chances at scholarships

Postby ALawGuy » Wed Oct 03, 2012 10:05 pm

So I'm a finance undergrad, 3.90 GPA and 167 LSAT, which I guess pretty much makes me the generic law school applicant.

After doing research, BU, Wash U, and U of Washington are the schools I like most, for their programs, faculty, locations, etc.

Question: I can't quite get a read on what my chances at a decent scholarship are with these scores so I figured I'd ask here. I tried HourUMD and got some numbers there, but why not cast a wider net?

For the record: I have work experience relevant to some of the practice areas I might be interested in, decent recommendations, non-US background, research work for a think tank that involved substantial legal research, low-income family... Does any of this count?

It matters to me now because I need to make decisions with regards to some other grad programs with deadlines coming up very soon and from which I'm likely to get decisions well before I hear back from the law schools.

I like USC and Notre Dame too, but the only issue is that I am not 100% sure I want to be in Cali/Indiana.

Okay then... thanks in advance!
