I didn't get any from them. And I haven't seen anybody list any money from them either. I get the impression they are pretty stingy and that's how they paid for their shiny new building.
Accepted: Brooklyn w/17.5K, Suffolk, NYLS w/ 20K
Pending: Northeastern, Cardozo, American
Rejected: GW, Fordham (no surprise there)

Did you send in a financial aid application? I just sent in mine last week.

I was accepted at Suffolk for undergrad and they offered me a very generous financial aid package, but I didn't get anything from the law school either.

Merit-based scholarships come in a different letter from acceptance. I got my acceptance first and a week or two later I got my scholarship letter. ($15,000 per year, stats: 157, 3.63)

As for need-based financial aid, you probably have to file FAFSA.

I got my acceptance last Monday and I have yet to see any financial aid award letter.  Perhaps this could be something to look forward besides my pending visit to Boston to look at the school/vacation. 

Also, how is the area where the school is located?

Suffolk is probably in the best area of the boston law schools, in my opinion (sorry harvard, i do love cambridge, but suffolk is a step up!)  Its right downtown, literally on the common, near the theatre district and great restaurants and all.  The only problems are crime later at night when all the working people have left, and housing right near campus is expensive.  Thanks for the info about the award letter, it'll give me something to look forward to for the next few weeks!

Thanks for the information about the area; I'm from Chicago and picturing it to be very similar to the Chicago loop.  Is it easily accessible from public transportation?

Really accessable from public transportation, probably the most accessable spot in the city.  The green and red lines are literally right outside the door, and the orange and blue lines are walkable, so not a bad trip from anywhere on the T, really.
