Financial Aid / Silly But Key Stafford Loan Question
« on: February 29, 2008, 02:01:01 PM »
So, I keep getting confused about Stafford Loan eligibility.  In some cases, it seems like there's $20.5k a year available regardless of need (the only distinction is between the subsidized and unsubsidized amounts).  In other cases, it seems like you can only borrow up to your demonstrated level of need. 

Which one's right?

Where should I go next fall? / I'm In Ur Process, Gettin My Fees Waived
« on: August 17, 2007, 03:50:47 AM »
What's proper protocol for asking for a fee waiver from a law school?  It's going to be thin financially for me just getting to visit my top three or four schools, and I'm not looking forward to the $60 app fee plus LSAC fees plus the pint of blood for the scholarship applications.
