Title: GPA/LSAT Combination & Scholarships
Post by: Law2k6 on March 15, 2006, 11:55:25 PM
I'm curious which combination is likely to be better for scholarships. Any thoughts?

3.8/170

170 seems to be a cutoff for some scholarships, and 3.8 is still above the 75 percentile at quite a few schools.

i hate people who have any of these gpas.

But you don't mind people who have LSATs scores in the high 170s, such as 177? ;)

Why is 170 the "magic number"?

True...but 173 is the beginning of the 99th percentile. 170 is "only" the 98th percentile.

I would think, and this depends upon the school, that an LSAT score of 160 and a formidable GPA (maybe 3.5ish?) or better would qualify you for scholarships, at least it did for me.

I hope this helps.

it's not the new millenium that people are excited about, it's the excitement of the 1 turning into a 2.

No, people were excited to see if their computers would turn on them and kill or enslave the human race.
