Top schools that offer full rides?

Top schools that offer full rides?

Yale and Harvard both say that they do not offer merit scholarships.  I'm wondering which of the top tier law schools offer full ride scholarships.  I know NYU does, but the rest are not so public about it and a little unclear.  Anyone know of others?

YHS don't.

Columbia, NYU, Michigan, Virginia, Penn (?), and Northwestern do. There could be more, but those are the ones I know offhand.

The key is fairly basic:  if you're a student that law school would be happy to have (because it makes that law school more competitive vis-a-vis HYS), then all bets are off.  The more you would make them look good--which of course applies to a vanishingly small percentage of applicants--the more inclined they are to make a deal.

The lower one goes in the official hierarchy, the easier it is to make that deal . . . but the less that deal means.
