Financial Aid / Re: My financial Aid Package. Is this the norm??
« on: April 08, 2008, 05:41:54 PM »
Thank you all for the help. Yes I do understand that this is for tuition only. I do currently live in NYC with parents, and I have no choice then support on them for a while. I know once I get out of school, I do have lots and lots of loans to pay off, which will most likely take more than half of my pay check. However, I believe that this is a sacrifice that we all have to go through when we decide to go to law school.

I have good credit so I applied for a citibank Grad PLus loan and got accepted, therefore I will use this as a measure to get the rest of the money I need including tuition and other expenses.

« on: April 07, 2008, 05:44:20 PM »
So I plan to go to New York Law School. This is the Financial Aid package I'm getting, I was wondering if this is the norm. any suggestions will be greatly aprreciated. Thanks

Tuition: $42,500
Unsubsidized loans : $12,000
Subsidized loans: $8,500
NYLS money: $5,000 ( I dont have a scholarhsip and they said this is the max they give)
Perkings loan: $3,000
Remaining Money I have to come up with: $15,000

So is this the norm for someone who does not get any scholarships?? is 15,000 of private loans to much??? what type of loans do you guys suggest???

onece again, I dont know much about the subject, therefore any help will be very useful...

well my job will only consist of 18 hours per week. However, its not extremely important or beneficial, so I will probably just leave. Do you know how many hours a full time law school schedule usually consist of? (mainly just the classes, I know that it requires many hours to study, read, etc.)
