A few weeks back I wrote on the importance of a high LSAT score for getting generous financial aid, arguing that a few extra points on the test can save tens of thousands.  I got an email from John Marshall in Chicago that puts some numbers to this claim:

Did you know that The John Marshall Law School awards more than $2 million in scholarships to entering JD students each year?…. All admitted applicants are automatically considered for our full range of scholarship opportunities, including:

  • Distinguished Scholar Awards:  Full Tuition Waiver + $10,000 stipend
  • Howard T. Markey Distinguished Scholar Awards (for students pursuing Intellectual Property Law):  Full Tuition Waiver + $10,000 stipend
  • Edward T. Lee Scholarships:  Full Tuition Waiver
  • Dean’s Scholar Awards:  Ranges from $4,000 to $25,000

With tuition at John Marshall running about $38,000/year, the top scholarship is worth roughly $150,000 over the course of your legal education.

To reinforce the point — your goal should be to absolutely maximize your score, not just clear a hurdle for admissions.
