$$ for LS?

$$ for LS?
« on: October 23, 2006, 12:11:11 AM »
Well, getting in is one thing--paying for it is another--
I'm wondering if I have a shot at any $$$ from a top 50 LS--
165/3.5
Grad degree
3 years living overseas
2 years FT work experience (in area of degree)
Average for ECs/Service
Peer-reviewed publications
Non-URM

Any thoughts would be GREATLY appreciated!

If you were willing to go to the third tier I'd say you have it made as far as getting law school paid for.  But the T50... not sure they'd give you a whole lot.  Your GPA is good but not great.  Same for your LSAT.  Maybe the 38-50 will give you at least a bit of help.  But again, this is just an educated guess.

$ is hard to predict. Search on LSN for people with similar numbers and see who got what from where. I would think that you would get some $$ but not a full ride. I am basically in the same boat.
