California Law school to meet with prospective law students

Offers a variety of scholarships

Admissions counselors from Western State University College of Law will be in San Diego, at various locations, to meet with prospective students. Students applying to Western State University, which is the nation's newest provisionally approved American Bar Association law school, are now eligible for a variety of scholarships. The awards are based on student performance on the Law School Admission Test (LSAT).

Students with an average LSAT score of 150 or above are eligible for partial to full tuition scholarships, which are renewable for each subsequent year of study if the recipients maintain a 2.50 cumulative grade point average.

Through a special fund established to celebrate the law school's provisional approval by the ABA, full-time students whose average score is 156 or above will receive additional awards to bring total grants to $18,800, or 100% of their first-year, full-time tuition. Part-time students are eligible for comparable grants. For upper division students, Western State University College of Law offers merit scholarships based on cumulative grade point average of up to $16,500 a year for those in the top 30%. Other scholarships are also available.

Dates and Location:

October 26 Western State counselors will be at San Diego State University.

October 28 they will be at the University of San Diego.

November 5 at the University of California, San Diego.
