When did y'all get information about scholarships?
I just received scholarship info with my acceptance letter via email @mtbgirl
Anyone have any idea what the potential lowest LSAT score the school would accept is? Just best guess, probably 150 range?
Hey guys, I was a UD Law student this past year. Just on here for fun and a little research since I'm looking into transferring.
You should receive a scholarship offer along with your acceptance. If you don't then they likely aren't going to offer one. But of course you should always reach out to them either way.
I know that some of my classmates got in with a 149. My score was a 151 and I was accepted with scholarship offers, although I was waitlisted first.
I hope this information helps y'all, I sure wish I had access to info like this when I was applying. Best of luck!

Dayton is not in need of ppl this late in the cycle. That is why the #'s are not making sense to some folks.
