I was all set to go to St. Johns, put my seat deposit down and everything. I just got a scholarship upgrade from Brooklyn. Now according to lawschooltransparency.com St. John's actually has slightly better stats in regards to employment. They are also much more transparent. However the renewal stips for Brooklyn are much better. The stipulation is top 80% for Brooklyn to renew and top 40% at St. John's to renew all of it.I have about ten days to put down a deposit for Brooklyn if I want to go there.
OP: I don't mean this to sound rude (seriously, I don't), but are you sure about that top 80% stip from Brooklyn? Are you sure they don't mean that you must be ranked at or above the 80th percentile (top 20%)? The reason I ask is because I've never seen such a generous stip. The best I've ever seen require that the student remain in "good standing", which could easily be above the top 80%, depending on the school. I have no idea what the curve is at Brooklyn, but it seems at least questionable that a school would allow you to retain a scholarship if you are ranked in the bottom 20%. I'm not challenging your honesty, OP, I'm merely suggesting that you ask Brooklyn some questions.
