ADDITIONAL INFO & UPDATES

160 on my first LSAT take, studied a few more months and got a 169 on my second take.

Kent award is full-tuition plus fees.

Michigan aid was all need-based - received $0 in merit aid.

Only schools I attempted to negotiate with were Michigan, Loyola, and Georgetown.

Georgetown raised the award based on UT and WUSTL offers ($45,000-> $52,500).

Michigan didn't raise award amount since it was larger than merit amounts from peer schools.

Loyola package is a combination of scholarships and fellowships. They raised my award amount after I spoke to faculty there and used the Michigan and Kent offers ($102,000 -> $123,000).

I was admitted to Loyola Chi and was considering but unfortunately I was not anywhere near you $$$$ wise! I need to get my LSAT score on your level! Did you self study?

I did a Manhattan Prep course for the first exam and self studied for the second. I used the LSAT Trainer for LR and RC and the PowerScore LG Bible for LG. I did a lot of five-section practice tests, and a few of those at my testing site the time of the exam. The on-site tests helped a ton.
