3.92, 170 - Chances of $ at T14?

Post by abcanada » Thu Jul 30, 2020 11:13 am

Decent but not great softs. Co-op as a production supervisor at a manufacturing plant, and co-op as a junior analyst at a pretty well known bank, captain of a varsity sports team. Money is pretty tight. Any chance at getting at least 70% scholarship at a T14?

Blanket. Good chance you hit that number somewhere between UVA and Cornell. It's a numbers game. You help both medians. Congratulations, you're in a spot where you're just looking to avoid any real negative opinion on your other application materials. Just make sure all your material is free from error and that you don't come off arrogant or entitled. Write ALL "Why X" essays even if not asked for.

Great advice above. MyLSN shows a ton of people with your profile getting scholarships in the $100-150k area.

Thanks for the reply. New to this forum and just seeing this MyLSN site now, my chances of $ look a little better than I initially thought.

Just curious - is there any way to confirm the validity of the numbers on MyLSN? Like, do you have to send proof to post your stats (LSAT,GPA,acceptance,$ received) or are we content with trusting user accounts?

No, and there are a few profiles that seem fishy, but the data seem to be pretty reliable in terms of truthfulness. Not really any incentive to lie; anyone who bothers to make an account is going out of their way to pass information down to future applicants.

Where you have to be careful is with statistical validity, since the data are incomplete and probably also biased towards a certain kind of applicant. But, as a rough guess, LSN is better than anything else out there. Law schools jealously guard the "real" data.
