General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Deciding between a full tuition scholarship(T3) and a partial scholarship(T1« on: May 03, 2009, 12:04:43 AM »
I'm no math geek, but you'll see most T3/T4 scholarships have statistical odds stacked against them. Schools just can't hand out that free money to that many people.
Best of luck in your decisions.
Concur. I received full tuition to Akron--with a 3.3 GPA requirement (pegged at top 10%). In the face of that, I will take the half-tuition to Notre Dame (which I retain as long as I stay off probation) any day.
As others have said, it's an investment. Although the idea of attending a law school for free is very tempting, I can almost guarantee that you will be less than satisfied with the end result. I could have ended up paying as much at Akron as I will be paying at Notre Dame for my 2L/3L years. (Of course, if you already have employment secured for post-graduation and are simply going to law school to get the degree, all bets are off.)
