Current Law Students / asking for fin aid
« on: January 13, 2007, 01:57:15 PM »
I am currently an out of state student with no scholarship dollars at my law school.  This is expensive.  Although my school does not rank 1Ls 1st semester, judging by the past three year's stats, I should fall in the top 10% of my class and possibly the top 5%.  Has anyone ever heard of people attempting to get fin aid money for the 2nd and 3rd years, and if so, how should one go about it?  Also, is this a subject to bring up with the Dean of Admissions or the Dean of Students?

For those of you doing summer start, how is it going so far?

I have a Dell Latitude D610 that I bought last year.  It's been a trooper so far (I don't go easy on electronics), so I think it was a good buy.

No GradPLUS loan yet.  Hopefully by the end of this weekend.  I still haven't finished reading the email they sent about it, but I'm not a huge fan of an interest rate fixed at 8.5%.  I guess if rates keep moving in the direction they are currently headed, I should get used to it.  Are you guys going to try to take out all the IU budget will allow, or are you trying to determine your own budget and going from there?

Also, do you know if the law school has a decent student lounge or any sort of convenience store in it?  I did the tour and have been over there several times since, but I don't recall ever seeing either.

There's a new program which starts real soon (maybe this year, maybe next year) that will allow you to get both degrees in three years.  However, you have to be an exceptional candidate for both the law school and Kelley, and you have to have extensive work experience to prove you can handle the workload.

Taco, are you speaking of the B-school joint program or the SPEA program?  I know that the MBA program just started an intensive 3 year joint law program, but I hadn't heard anything about SPEA moving in that direction (and I had Professor Barnes last semester so I'd think he would have mentioned something).  I wouldn't qualify either way, but just curious...

I'm acutally a joint student (MPA/JD) and started the MPA program this past year.  The ability to get both degrees in 4 years is what really drew me to IU.  Plus, I really liked Bloomington when I visited, and the admissions people were great. 

I'm living over in the Crossing, which is close to the mall.  I would definitely look for someplace closer to the law school/downtown if I had the option.  Buses stop running at around midnight (although there is a rumored "drunk bus" that was never there when I needed it), so it would be nice to be within walking distance of the school and the bars.

Why factors lead you to choose Indiana?

As will I.  I'm thinking there aren't many future IUB students using this board. 

Thanks.  I do like IU's placement though. Job well done ALAMAR!  :)  

Previous comment is withdrawn.  I am an idiot and really need to find something better to be doing with my time...

Congrats!  Maybe I'll be seeing you around next year!  Is it a top choice?
