Yeah, your budget is the standard number used to calculate the maximum amount it will cost you to go to Widener Law. You take this number, subtract expected family contribution, subtract scholarships, subtract federal aid, and you are left wiht some amount. This amount is the maximum amount that Widener will certify your Grad Plus loan or other student loans. You do have the option of appealing this budget number, however I think that you would need some dire circumstances for them to bump you up.

Hope this helps.
