Ive been starting to consider asking Temple and possibly other schools. Recently, my mother's health has taken a turn for the worst and due to this, i may have to help her obtain some benefits through SSA (which shoudl be easy considering her condition...but who knows). I'll also have to help her rearange her living arrangement and get her financial/personal matters in order. There are some other personal issues as well that have come from this that id rather not get into.
Im begining to question if I would be able to give law school my all next fall. I know how important 1L year can be, and im worried that due to these factors I would not be able to give it 100%. Im also worried that if i do ask for a deferal and am granted one, I would lose my scholarship money. I simply cannot attend law school full price, so no scholarship money is a dealbreaker. I suppose my question is, if I do get a deferal, do schools generally offer at least the same amount? Any other insight from anyone who has done this?
