Scholarship Chances?
« on: January 20, 2006, 08:12:24 PM »
Anyone have any idea what sort of numbers it takes to get a scholarship to the University of Memphis (especially a full scholarship?)  My numbers are 167 LSAT, 3.89 undergrad GPA, 4.0 graduate GPA, strong personal statement, ok letters, lots of extracurriculur type things.  Vice-chairman of the Shelby County Democratic party, teacher, coach, sunday school teacher, and others.  Any thoughts on the chances would be great.  Thanks so much.

Considering that Memphis 75% LSAT is 158, I would say you have about a 99% chance of getting a full ride unless you fuucked the Dean's daughter. If you want to be in that area, you should also apply to Tenn (you are a lock) and Vandy (for fun).

Vandy for fun?  The OP would be above the median LSAT and above the 75%GPA at Vandy.

I agree. I didn't want to get said posters hopes too high without knowing anything else about them.

Dang.  That dean's daughter thing always screws me.  Seriously though, thanks.  I do want to stay in the area, but I actually don't want to even leave Memphis for a number of reasons (wife, house, church, politics, etc.)  Memphis has a really strong reputation in this area and since I will practice here anyways I'd rather not leave.
