I am looking to apply to schools in the top 20.
I have questions regarding financial aid,as I am very confused
do schools accept Financial aid applications only after you're admitted?
or do some schools accept financial applications at the time of application (or the time in between application and acceptance?)
when do the schools start admitting regular applicants (non-ED), and what happens if I get admitted after the financial aid application deadline? does that mean I won't be eligible for financial assistance at that school?
and would you ever be in a scenario where you accept admission to one school only later to find out that another school has offered you (more) money and had you known, you probably would have gone to that another school?
please don't laugh at my utter newb questions. I'm so confused and law school websites aren't very concise.
