Each year we offer scholarships to as many of the most qualified applicants as possible. We are committed to provide each scholarship recipient who enrolls with the opportunity to maintain his or her scholarship throughout law school. The 3.15 GPA requirement was selected, based on the GPA’s of previous 1st year classes, to provide for each scholarship student to keep their award. This has been our practice since the creation of the UB Law Scholarship.
Even with this practice, some UB Law Scholarship recipients do not meet the required GPA after the first year. Over the past three years the number of scholarship students who have retained their awards has ranged from 62% to 71%.
Below is a chart of the number of students receiving scholarships and the number of students who did not maintain the required GPA.
Please contact the Office of Law Admissions with any questions.
