LL.M. Scholarship Rates?


Hey everyone,

I’m an LLB graduate pursuing my LLM in the US, and I’m wondering about the percentage/rarity of scholarships awarded to foreign LLM applicants. I ask as due to late graduation, I was not able to apply in time for T14 applications, but was awarded half-tuition scholarships at a couple of schools just outside the T14. The only thing is that those scholarship letters seem to be almost the exact same wording.

I’m just wondering about whether it’s custom for schools to deliberately overprice their LLM to then regularly award 'scholarships' to entice international applicants, or whether it’s the case that non-T14 schools just receive fewer international applicants and so award more scholarships.

Basically, I’m wondering whether to take one of these offers as a rare gift, or wait to try my luck at a T14 school next application cycle (and risk not being awarded any scholarship then anyway). Any insight would be very much appreciated!
