The budget at my school is set for 47k.  Peanuts as I understand.  How do i go about trying to get an increase in allotted budget?  I will get $20,500 from stafford and i plan on using access group or THE for the rest of the 27K- will they allow me to take more?  I have heard they will not.

So basically, St. Thomas Florida is my "only secure" option.  I didn't do so hot on the LSAT- 151- but i didn't study for it either and i was 2.5 years out of college.

my GPA is a 2.5.  I applied in March/April to all my schools- 14 total and the only acceptances i have are from tier 4. 

so do i wait it out another year, clear some of my debt and study for the lsat and reasonably expect a high 150-low 160 and apply early or do i suck it up and go to st thomas?

any takers with sound advice is appreciated!

also- i live in charleston SC which is the seventh circle of hell and i want toget ou asap.
