You can take out law loans above the cost of attendance. Bank One offers one (I know there are others too). I believe they will let you borrow up to 30k.
There's a couple things I've heard about Lewis & Clark. First off if you want to go into Environmental law you can't do much better, and I think that program account for a lot of their ranking. However it seems pretty mixed if you're not going into environmental, although I could be wrong about this. Also something like 40% of the class is already married and I believe there is a pretty high number of older students, so this may or may not appeal to you. I'm 22 and single, so it was a really killing point for me. Also I read somewhere that Portland law firms don't hire a lot from lewis & clark, preferring to hire from big east coast schools, this was really surprising to me, I don't know how good your job prospects are outside of Portland, they may be good, but it doesn't look like you'll get anything in the area. Again these are just things I've heard/read so don't shoot me if they aren't totally accurate. It is dirt cheap though to live right next to lots of hiking and a big city and for some people that would be perfect.
Thanks for the info Erin, but I was actually asking about the log-in info to check your application status on-line at their website. Not to say that I haven't been checking their admitted student log-in site...Jessie78,
You don't need to wait for them to give you the info (although I got mine in the letter I received dated 2/3 and received 2/5). Go to the Admissions section of their website and click on Admitted Students on the left. You'll need to enter your first name, last name, last 6 digits of SSN and email. If you can get in then you've been admitted. If it says you entered something wrong, you haven't been admitted yet. I hope this is what you were asking!
