I'd be happy to help you. I'm off work for the next 2 days and locking myself in my house until I get my PS done.. so I'm hoping you can help me back

I'm looking into going to St. Louis University b/c I love St. Louis and can't get into Wash U anyway, does anybody know much about SLU's reputation? I'm not from the area so I am hoping someone on here has heard something about the school.I know they are ranking 95, which is definitely not impressive, but health care law is #1 in country. Other than those stats, I can't find anything!!
If you want to practice in St. Louis after you graduate, SLU or MU may be a better option than WUSTL anyways. Are you actually interested in health care law?
Have you retaken the LSAT?
What are the scholarship cutoffs?
It's going to change every year, and the GPA/LSAT scores are most likely going to go up a little every year.
Last year, with only a very few exceptions, it went:
165-166, 3.5-3.75 = $90k
165-166, 3.75+ = $96k
167+, >3.5 = $75k
167=, <3.5 = Accept
165-166, <3.5 = Accept
>164 = Reject
This doesn't count URMs. Things are more volatile for them and soft factors seem to be more important. I think there's a few people that got in with 155 and a good GPA, but I'd say you need a 159 to be pretty confident. Most URMs got a $54k scholarship.
And yeah, some of that seems a little counter-intuitive. They obviously played the "boost our medians" game, although I'm not sure how much of an effect this had on our 25-75 rankings. Also, before someone asks, I don't know much about this year's numbers other than that our median GPA is about 3.55 and LSAT is "92%" (my LSAT was 166 and I was 93%, FWIW).
