Financial Aid / Lots of Fin Aid in UG = ??? in Law School
« on: January 12, 2006, 01:46:30 AM »
Maybe only a financial aid officer or non-0Ls can answer this but...

I take it law schools aren't nearly as generous as UGs in terms of financial aid/grants. My UG was commited to "meeting 100% of demonstrated financial need." Much to my dismay, I've never seen that phrase used in brochures from any of the law schools to which I applied.

So does anyone know how stingy/generous law schools are?

In UG, for me it was cheaper to go to private school because they gave me a more generous aid package (more $ overall, and higher proportion of grants as opposed to loans/workstudy) than public schools. Does this hold true for law schools?

Also, is the EFC formula on FAFSA different for UG and for grad school? My EFC senior year was approx $5000. Would I be wrong to expect about the same this time around?

Law School Applications / LSN question

I noticed that some people's profiles have little Fs or Ws by the school graph icons. What do they mean?

Is there some key to all the symbols that I'm missing?

thanks :)

Section 2

15. Editorialist: Society is obliged to bestow the privileges of adulthood upon its members once they are mature enough to accept the corresponding responsibilities.  But science has established that physiological development is completed in most persons by age 17.  Since this maturing process has been completed by most seventeen year-olds, there is no reason not to grant these citizens all the privileges of adulthood.

The Editorialist's argument is most vulnerable to criticism on the grounds that it:
A) Assumes what it was trying to prove
B) too hastily reaches a general conclusion on the basis of a few examples
C) equivocates with respect to a central concept
D) too readily accepts a claim by appeal to inappropriate authority
E) ignores the fact that some people are mature at age 16

The correct answer is C. What is the central concept?


Recommendations / ask language prof or econ prof?
« on: September 15, 2005, 01:08:52 AM »
can't decide... who should i ask for a rec? ???

My first option is a Korean language prof who LOVES me and would probably say I'm one of her top students, etc.
But I'm Korean so it probably looks like a fluff class.

My second option is an Econ prof who I haven't had for a year and (if she agreed) would probably write a standard, run of the mill letter? I did well in the class, but I don't think I would stand out in her memory.

One of my other letters is also from an Econ prof, should be pretty good, and a supervisor, should be great.
