how much money can I get?
« on: January 11, 2003, 05:21:26 PM »
Hello all,
I'm from Canada, and I plan on attending law school starting in fall '05.  I want to go to the US.  Some people have told me that you can get a lot of financial aid from US schools, while some say the oppposite.  What percentage of tuition can you really expect to get from a more expensive law school?

Also, I was wondering if anyone knows how law schools view finance degrees.  My friend talked to a former Canadian supreme court judge, and he said law schools love finance degrees.

Lastly, I was wondering how the LSAC calculates GPA.  Do they take your overall cumulative GPA.  I was only about a 2.5 GPA my first year, but now I'm up in the 3.7-3.8 region.  What will law schools think of this?

Any help is very much appreciated!
