I am receiving small amounts of $ in federal loans from my law school (Boalt), but over the course of three years it's probably not going to be enough. So, I am receiving a private loan - with a private loan, you have to request a certain amount. I figure I'll need at most $50,000 to cover additional expenses that my federal loans, personal assets and parental help can't cover, so I requested $50,000. Should I be requesting only what I need in one year, or did I do it correctly in requesting the total I will need over the full three years?
