URM, 178 & 3.45 gpa; honestly, is it possible to get into UCLA Law with a scholarship?

.I really do want to attend this school, but I can't go through with it If I will take on $200k+ debt for it. Biglaw is something I'm considering as well.

    @lsat_sus lol it's not about getting in, it's about how much money they're willing to give to me since my gpa is below their 25th percentile

    you'll do okay, you'll get some money, how much you won't know for sure until you apply.

    With those metrics I don't see a problem getting scholarship money from UCLA at all. You can also check out LSAT Demon's scholarship estimator (estimator being the key word here) which estimates based on each law school's 509 data, your GPA, LSAT score, and whether you're a URM whether you would have a chance at funding and if so about how much.

    I think you have a very good chance, cause if you are below their 50% it doesn't matter how much you below. Also, ucla is trying very hard to improve their ranking i guess, they will need some high lsat taker.
