Um, noooo....a lot of schools don't even offer UG law classes. And based on a convo I had with an admissions rep, the students who took those classes in UG are more of a pain in the butt for the faculty because they pretty much have to be "untaught", so to speak

I concur  :) But, if you want a cheaper flight, BWI or Philly would work too. Harrisburg's a smaller airport, so flights tend to be more expensive. Of course, if you use BWI or Philly, you'd prob. have to rent a car.

Yes, I do find that insane. Something seems really wrong there. Do you have a lot of assets or something?

Haha - that's awesome, you should totally do it  :)

I got into Widener today. Question for the other people on here who have gotten Widener acceptances: Did your scholarship info come with the acceptance letter, or separately?

2 years ago i found out i had cancer. with no health insurance and went through the whole deal on my own dime. ill be paying that one off for a while.


That is something you should definitely tell your law schools in an additional information form or an addendum to your financial aid application. Something similar happened when I was in undergrad, and my school adjusted my EFC from a fairly high one to one that qualified me for a Pell grant. They required documentation of all the medical bills, but they were willing to adjust for circumstances.

I just got the EFC boot in the ass. $18029. which is approximately $17029 more dollars than i have. all bc I made a measely 50k last year.

The schools Im looking to go to are in the 50K per year range, so I will still qualify for the max amount of federal loans (if I interpret how it works properly)

but I guess this will proabably preclude me from need-based grants. you think?

You know, as someone who makes just over half of that in a year, perhaps you should all put things into perspective a bit. There are people who need the money more than you do. Think of it that way - it might just make you feel better. Also consider that you probably won't have much trouble repaying the loans once you graduate with a JD and get the big-time job you're hoping for. And yes, radioface - that will probably preclude you from need-based grants.

would you seriously consider PSU over your other choices if they did?

Yes, I'm seriously considering them regardless. But I need more money.

I haven't yet, not sure if i should go straight to dean austin or not

I wrote a letter to Dean Austin to be sent on Monday. I was just curious as to whether it'll actually have any effect.
