Hey,
 I am new to this forum, but I just came back from abroad and found out about my June LSAT score/tallied GPA. I majored in Nuclear Engineering and English.

My UGPA according to the LSAC is 4.1 (A+s really do help), I really want to see what financial package I can receive from these schools since I am filed as an independent.

My other qualifications include 4 years in Crew, Delta Kappa Epsilon and Men's Volleyball. Nothing I do really relate directly to law school.

I am thinking about Cornell and Columbia as my reach school since I've heard the Top 5 schools are extremely competitive. Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Truly excellent flame.

You're in at Harvard, obviously, if by some miracle you're not flame.  (If not Yale.)

full ride everywhere else below Stanford.

Can I expect full rides from publics such as Berkeley and Michigan?

I got a token amount of need-based aid, but I'm still just under $46k in the hole for this year alone.
