If you don't get any scholarship as an entering 1L, is it possible to get $$ for your 2nd or 3rd years? (I'm thinking about a lower T-14 here). If so, how well would you have to do to get an award -- top 25%? 10%?
It could be a valid statement, you just might not agree with it.
By this definition most human beings and some other mammals are all intellectuals.
