What are the factors that most determine if you receive scholarship money? LSAT & GPA
Does your location, income, history affect it at all? no, unless you're a movie star or something--then it's possible it determine whether they offer one
Maybe I should clarify...I am thinking about just applying to Washburn U. for their Spring Start semester. I am wondering if I apply there and don't get the scholarship I need/want and withdraw the application, retake the LSAT and re-apply for the next fall cycle, will the original appliacation have any affect on the new application (In terms of acceptance and scholarship)?
They'll still have your old application on file when you reapply, and they will ask you if you have applied before. It would likely effect whether they accept you a second time, but I don't know from 1st hand experience. You could call the admissions office and find out.
What exactly makes an applicant 'under-represented'? Is it only race, or can it have to do with sex, veteran status, having a child, etc.?
pretty much race, though there may be some exceptions
