A new Kaplan survey* of over 600 pre-law students finds that a law school's ranking continues to factor significantly into their decision where to enroll – in many cases, even more than financial aid and ability to pay. When asked which law school admissions scenario they’d prefer to be in, Kaplan found the following:
- Mid-Tier School, Some Aid: A plurality (46%) of those surveyed said they’d rather be accepted by a mid-tier law school, where they’d receive a half-scholarship.
- Top-Tier Law School, Zero Aid: 39% said they’d prefer to be accepted by a top tier law school, where’d they’d receive no financial aid at all.
- Lower-Tier Law School, Full Aid: Just 16% said they’d prefer to be accepted by a lower ranked law school and receive a full ride scholarship.
