General Board / Last minute drama
« on: April 09, 2006, 11:16:11 AM »
Okay, so at the last minute I decided to drop an application to Pitt.  I have been accepted into GW and my employer will pay for school in full if I go PT, however, that could change in a year or two but its hard to tell with government budgets.  I am fairly certain they would end up paying for the majority of everything in the end.

On the other hand, Pitt just raised my scholarship offer to their highest scholarship of 15K a year and told me I shouldn't have a problem getting in-state tuition as a "returning resident."  What do I do?  GW PT for four years or Pitt FT for $4-6K per year (estimation of inflation over three years)?

My father-in-law recently spoke to a few lawyers at an anti-trust firm here in DC and they said they didn't think it would matter which school I went to, however, I find that hard to believe since the rankings difference is HUGE.  Pitt is Tier 2 and GW is 19.

Who knows?  Any input is appreciated.  I don't really know why I post this on a 0L forum, but I guess some input is better than no input at all.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / GW PT Class of 2010

I formed a Yahoo Group for GW Law Part Time Evening Students.  Click my web link below my name to check it out.  Figured us part time students could use a home of our own.  Anybody with any web savvy please feel free to help me make a better site.

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Fall 2006 GW Meetup
« on: February 21, 2006, 10:08:56 PM »
If anybody is in the area and will be attending GW PT or FT this coming Fall I figured I would see if anybody was interested in grabbing a couple drinks with on Saturday.  I'm in the process of ironing out the details with a friend on where we are headed but I figured I might as well plant the seed.

Hope to meet some of you soon.

Where should I go next fall? / Is it worth it?

If I didn't get into GULC's PT program last year, would I have any shot in hell if I submitted a last minute app. this year again for the PT program?  Would I be wasting my money and time?  Just curious.........

Financial Aid / Stafford Loans at risk?
« on: February 09, 2006, 10:24:25 PM »
Okay, so if my wife and I made around 70K last year total and have about 10K in a savings account will this affect my ability to get the max in subsidized and unsubsidized loans?  Most of our salary goes to living expenses bc DC is crazy expensive as many of you know. 

I don't want to milk my entire savings that we are hoping to use for a house in a year.  Will our savings be negligible considering the expense of law school?  Also, I will be going Part Time.

Lastly, what happens if you don't report your savings to FAFSA?  I mean they don't physically check it do they?  I don't plan on doing this, but I was just curious after thinking about it.
